Chorus Partners: ContraVest Properties and the Donald Pitt Family Foundation

The Tucson Boys Chorus is proud to be a recipient of funding from the Donald Pitt Family Foundation and ContraVest Properties.

Tucson attorney and businessman Donald Pitt, on behalf of the Donald Pitt Family Foundation, donated $10,000. As a former member of the Chorus, Pitt knows first-hand why the Chorus is important.

"As a member of the Tucson Boys Chorus from 1940 through 1942, I learned valuable life experiences which have served me well throughout my life," said Pitt.

Pitt, a longtime Tucsonan, attended Sam Hughes Elementary, Mansfield Junior High and Tucson High School before attending the University of Arizona where he earned his undergraduate and law degrees.

He remained in Tucson in the early 1950s to begin his law practice. He served as a member of the Board of Regents for 11 years, including two terms as chairman. Pitt is known for his involvement in charitable and community organizations.

ContraVest Properties continues its generous partnership with the Tucson Arizona Boys Chorus with a $10,000 donation. Glen Kerslake, president of ContraVest is also president of the Board of the Tucson Boys Chorus.

"Glen’s leadership has elevated the Chorus’ collaborative relationships with the community," Director Julian Ackerley said. "His administration is characterized by a strength of commitment to expand the artistic role of the Chorus, locally, nationally and internationally."

Kerslake has served as president of ContraVest Properties for seven years. Originally from West Palm Beach, Florida, he holds a BA and MBA from Florida State University. An avid cyclist, Kerslake participates in local cycling competitions.
