- About Cushing
Over the years, Cushing has been a JDRF Chicago Chapter partner, having created signage and graphics for various events. JDRF is the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. Monica Garvey is the Development Coordinator at JDRF and reached out to Account Manager Josette O’Neil out about an exciting prospect:
A competition that brings together top brokers, developers, property managers, and commercial real estate industry leaders to compete in a series of sporting events. After tremendous success in Washington D.C. and New York City, JDRF had plans for a hat trick.
The JDRF Real Estate Fact Games have raised more than $8 million for type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. Created in 1989, the first event took place on July 20, 1990, at Gonzaga College High School in Washington, D.C.
He started in the Illinois Chapter in 2017 and executed the inaugural Chicago Games in 2018. After a call with Cushing team members, Josette O’Neil, Jon Davis and JDRF colleague, Dana Snodgrass, the graphics plan came together.
Color Digital Operator (and superstar) Michelle Ward assisted with sign designs.
“The signage you produced for the JDRF Chicago Real Estate Games was visually appealing and helped to raise the level of professionalism.”
During the afterparty, stands bookended the registration table. Volunteers could focus on distributing name badges and goodie bags.

Positioned at the restaurant entrance, they helped volunteers direct participants inside Little Toasted, where name tags, goodie bags, and a well-deserved after-party was waiting.
As sponsors, teams, and JDRF volunteers were recognized, graphics created additional opportunities for brand awareness. Attendees gathered around to hear announcements.
As attendees networked and enjoyed the afterparty on the restaurant patio, signage was visible.
JDRF successfully presented their first annual Chicago Real Estate Games.
Branding signage created awareness during the games. All materials exceeded deadlines and the afterparty was a success.
