San Francisco, CA – July 27, 2020 – Chris DeNike from Corcoran Global Living’s Marin County office was recently recognized as one of “the coolest community partners” by a local nonprofit organization, Bread & Roses. Bread & Roses is a program whose mission is to offer hope, healing and joy through music and the performing arts to children, adults and seniors who are disadvantaged, marginalized or isolated.

Founded in 1974 by Mimi Fariña, she choose the name of the organization based on a 1912 poem by James Oeppenheim. Fariña embraced the power of music and the arts for those facing challenges. The organization is now in its fifth decade with more than 1,000 performers, hosts and volunteers.  They present over 625 shows and performances each year, reaching more than 36,000 audience members.

In its recent newsletter, Chris DeNike was acknowledged for his work with the group. DeNike, a music lover himself, first heard of Bread & Roses when he passed their awning while walking his dog. Once he learned of their mission, he quickly committed to supporting them by pledging a percentage of his sales to this worthy organization.

“Bread & Roses is a wonderful organization that embraces two of my favorite causes: music and making a difference,” DeNike remarked. “There is magic in music, and it’s wonderful to see it at work in my own community.”

DeNike has been selling real estate for 20 years and is a consistent top producer. He is a long-term resident of Marin County and has extensive insights into the community’s many features and benefits. His clients are at the forefront of every transaction and, as a result, he has a huge and loyal following.

A former restaurant owner in San Francisco, he and his wife moved to Corte Madera in search of blue skies and open spaces, which they found and continue to appreciate. He enjoys his Peloton bike, jogging, tennis, beach time and working with Age-Friendly Corte Madera, a nonprofit organization that supports healthy and active aging.

“Chris truly embodies the heart of who we are and what we do with his commitment to charitable giving and support of local organizations,” commented Michael Mahon, CEO and Founder of Corcoran Global Living. “Real estate, at its core, is about building communities—from the homes where we live to the people that enrich our lives. We’re dedicated to the nurturing, growth and betterment of the places we call home.”
