Members and affiliate members of the Minot Board of Realtors raised a record $15,948 for the Salvation Army at its annual 2012 Christmas social held at the Grand International Inn. Realtor offices and member contributions totaled $707. Members volunteered bell ringing services for the day, which accounted for $5,238. The remaining $10,003 was raised through silent and live auction proceeds at the annual event.
Realtor auctioneer Milt Korslien auctioned off items donated by real estate offices and contributions from local area businesses. In the past 10 years, the Minot Realtor and Affiliate Christmas Social has raised $84,993 to benefit the Minot Salvation Army.
Following Minot’s successful 10-year format, two years ago the North Dakota Association of Realtors adopted a Realtor Ring Day where real estate agents from across the state manned the Salvation Army kettles at all locations for one day. Following the success of the statewide effort, 17 states have joined the proclaimed Realtor Ring Day this year and we anticipate the national association of realtors adopting the program nationwide in the future.
