IRVINE, CA–The annual NAIOP “Night at the Fights” was a sold-out success, as members of the Southern California chapter of the Commercial Real Estate Development Assn. and their guests enjoyed a night of networking and fun at the Hyatt Regency.

“Black Tie and Boots” was the party’s theme, and the tuxedos were out in force. Attendees saw six sanctioned boxing and mixed martial arts bouts, enjoyed a gourmet dinner, cigars and cocktails, and were later entertained by casino games, a premium whiskey bar, a live country music band and a raffle table.

The NAIOP SoCal Chapter, serving Orange and Los Angeles counties, encompasses more than 900 members. It is the second largest NAIOP chapter in the United States and is the leading commercial real estate trade organization in Southern California.
