Joan Lucas, a real estate broker serving the self-storage industry, has painted her house pink for the month of October to raise awareness of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation. Yoplait Yogurt covered the cost of the transformation and donated $5,000 to the organization on behalf of Lucas, who has been a passionate supporter of the Denver affiliate for nearly 20 years. Her house will serve as a reminder that the fight against breast cancer starts in our neighborhoods and local communities.
Lucas has personally helped raise millions of dollars for Susan G. Komen for the Cure. In 1992, she played an integral role in bringing the Race for the Cure to Denver. Now one of the most successful races in the nation, the Denver event attracts more than 50,000 participants each year and has raised more than $28 million for local breast cancer research and education.
Owner of Joan Lucas Real Estate Services in Denver, Lucas has been active in the commercial real estate market for more than 24 years. A founding member of the Argus Self Storage Sales Network, she works with self-storage facility buyers, sellers and developers and has represented several real estate investment trusts in their search for Colorado sites.
