The REALTOR® Foundation of Iowa (RFI) raised over $14,000 during the Joan Ballantyne Live and Silent Auctions this year at the 2018 IAR Convention in Ames. The Cyclone and Hawkeye rivalry was on full display as many bidders went against one another for football and basketball game tickets. Special thanks to Byron Menke, our longtime auctioneer, who donates his time and expertise to RFI. All money raised goes to help Iowans in need.
"The Foundation is open to any Iowa REALTOR® to apply for a donation request for an Iowan in need. Each region has a budget for your regional donation. The RFI will grant donations approved by your regional representatives and approved by the 2018 budget." - R. Scott Case, REALTOR® Foundation of Iowa President
Thanks to all who donated and purchased items in our 2018 Joan Ballantyne Auction. $12,575 was raised during the live auction and another $2,262 during the silent auction.
