Lincoln County Realtors bowl to raise funds for homeless literacy program

Saturday April 27 members of the Lincoln County Board of Realtors (LCBR) gathered at Mugglys Bowling in Toledo to host a fundraiser for Homeless Education and Literacy Program (HELP).

The theme of the event was “Gone Country” and the Realtors turned out in some creative western regalia.

According to Michael Kessinger, past president of the LCBR and current chairman of Community Outreach Programs for the LCBR, “We get together and try to find good causes to raise money for.  This is one of our bigger functions that raise a lot of money.  This is our fourth annual program that we’ve put together and 100 percent of money raised go to the literacy program.”

Kessinger continued, “In August we have a golf tournament at Salishan and our goal is to raise ten thousand dollars between the two events.

When we found out what HELP was all about-it was a no brainer.  We wanted to jump right in and do what we could for them.”

The silent auction items donated by REALTORS® & Affiliate Sponsors helped boost the amount of the funds raised for HELP
