Auction Raises $19,000 for RPAC

Last month, CABOR hosted its annual silent and live auction to benefit the REALTORS® Political Action Committee (RPAC). The event featured a catered dinner, beverage station, live steel drum entertainment, a whiskey tasting by Cleveland Whiskey, and thanks to a REALTOR® Party RPAC grant, we were able to offer dozens of high quality items for everyone to bid on.

The event was a tremendous success raising $19,000 for RPAC. This amount brings our year-to-date fundraising efforts to approximately $45,000. These dollars are used to support REALTOR® Party candidates –those that support real estate friendly legislation – at the local, state and federal levels.

Why is RPAC so important? It has been said, ‘If you’re not at the table, you are on the menu.’ RPAC gives us a seat at the table when items, like the sales tax on real estate services and the mortgage interest deduction, are up for debate, and it gives our voice the volume it needs to be heard.

On behalf of the local RPAC trustees and myself, thank you to every person that has invested in RPAC, attended the auction, or showed support by donating items or sponsoring the event. We could not do it without you. A special thank you to our auction sponsors: Cross Country Mortgage, Cleveland Restoration Group, Olympic Restoration, Navy Federal Credit Union, RiteRug, Guardian Title, and Ohio Real Estate Auctions.

Save the date – July 12 – for “A Night in Ancient Greece,” hosted by CABOR’s YPN Committee. If you liked last year’s “A Night in Havana,” you will love this day at the park.  We’ll have a hilarious RPAC god competition, joust house, dunk tank, photo booth, tent decorating contest, Greek themed dinner and drinks, and much more. More information is available on CABOR’s website.

Thank you, again, for your support of RPAC.  We are well on our way to another record breaking year for CABOR. Let’s make sure we continue to have a seat at the table for our industry, property owners, and homeowners across Northeast Ohio.
