Annual RPAC Auction a Success
Last month, the Akron Cleveland Association of REALTORS® (ACAR) hosted its annual silent and live auction to support the REALTORS® Political Action Committee, or RPAC. Altogether, members invested more than $44,000 for RPAC. Thank you to our many investors, sponsors, volunteers, and supporters for your efforts!
The auction, dubbed RPAC: A Red Carpet Event, featured life-size celebrity décor, paparazzi, music from movie soundtracks, the ACAR Oscars, a Walk of Fame featuring ACAR’s Major Investors, a committee challenge for the best auction item, as well as thousands of dollars in items donated by dozens of ACAR members.
Winners in the ACAR Oscars are as follows:
- Best Dressed – Dianna Hosta Stickney
- Worst Dressed – Joe Dirk (aka: Joe Dirt)
- Celebrity Look A Like – Mike Bankowski (aka: Pitbull)
- People’s Choice – Meg Hudson Casper, past OAR President
Several of ACAR’s committees rallied to donate incredible items featured on the auction block. Excellent items were donated by the Board of Directors, Grievance, Legislative, Member Services & Affiliates, Professional Development & Equal Opportunity, Professional Standards, and RPAC committees, but the YPN Committee came out on top with its “Zac Brown Band Excursion.” The winning bidder invested $850 to secure the item.
Our next RPAC investment opportunity is July 10, 2015, and is being planned by our YPN Committee. With a “Peace, Love & Real Estate” theme, it is sure to be THE event of the summer. See you there.Photo Album
