REALTORS® and Affiliates raise nearly $21,000 for RPAC buying wine and PIE!
Over 50 REALTORS®, Affiliates, and guests attended the RPAC Wine Auction at Inglewood Golf Club in Kenmore yesterday. Brokers Trish Englund and Bev Read served as auctioneers during the event themed “Battle of the YPN vs OPN.”
“We all know what YPN stands for (Young Professionals Network), but what you might not know about ‘OPN’ is that the ‘O’ is for original,” mused Bev, who has been a member of Seattle King County REALTORS® for more than 30 years. The bidding battle between the two groups was fierce and resulted in raising a record amount of nearly $21,000 for the REALTOR PAC.
The YPN division ended up contributing about $9,100 between a dozen bidders while the originals raised $11,810 between two dozen bidders by buying wine and other special auction items. (Editors note: some birth dates are still being investigated)
In addition to over 50 bottles of wine up for auction, there were two homemade dinners hosted by Past President Patti Hill that went for $2,000 each and a delicious homemade peach pie from Patti that went for $1,750.
Thank you to all those who came, bid, and had fun with your REALTORS® and friends. See you next year!
