Before the holiday season even got underway, Teles was already doing more than it’s share of giving.

Part of the mission of Teles Properties is to give back, and Teles did exactly that in spades with one of it’s biggest charity events last year. On November 14th, Teles hosted an event to benefit Music for Relief.

Music for Relief was founded by the band Linkin Park in response to the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. Since inception in 2005 Music for Relief has raised over $8 million for survivors of multiple disasters across four continents including Hurricane Katrina, China’s Wenchuan earthquake, a cholera outbreak in Zimbabwe, earthquakes in Haiti and Japan in 2010, and Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.

MFR has organized benefit concerts, online auctions, and events with multi-platinum musicians and celebrities to help rebuild and donate supplies to people in need. Music for Relief has also planted over 1.3 million trees to help reduce climate change.

“Music for Relief is grateful to Teles Properties for its generous support of our Solar Suitcase program bringing light to health clinics in Africa,” says COO of Music for Relief, Whitney Showler. “The incredibly beautiful venue was the perfect setting to attract new supporters to our cause.”

In celebration of the life-saving Solar Suitcase — which provides reliable solar lights to health workers in third-world countries — and Mercedes-AMG’s contribution of 50 units to health clinics in Nigeria, the red carpet event aimed to educate guests — which included Mike D, Kelly Rowland, Eric Roberts and the Mercedes-AMG team — on the ways in which Solar Suitcases dramatically reduces maternal mortality in addition to other benefits.

“Having the opportunity to partner with such an inspiring non-profit organization like Music for Relief is a great honor,” says Teles co-president, Peter Hernandez. “Our business has always been centered around people — and it is profound and eye-opening that something as simple as providing adequate lighting can save thousands and thousands of lives.”

Teles hosted the benefit at one of their premiere listings held by Ernie Carswell and Oliver Mossi. The 130 South Burlingame Ave. property boasts seven bedrooms, 12 bathrooms and sits on a lavish 23,220 sq. ft. lot allowing for a field-size yard, putting green, saltwater pool and lanai. The secure, private estate also features a double living room, music room, library and the highest level of craftsmanship from full home automation to premium brand appliances.

Besides hosting the event at this beautiful listing, Teles provided support throughout the evening by overseeing set-up, check-in and demonstration of a virtual reality system.
