Young Professionals Council BBQ & Vendor Fair Fundraiser

Today, the Sacramento Association of Realtors "Young Professionals Council" put on a BBQ and Vendor Fair fundraising event to raise money for SAR's Scholarship Fund. We had 46 participating vendors, great food, ice cream, DJ music, and LOTS of donated raffle prizes. We weathered an unexpected summer rain, but a good time was had by all! While the final tallies are not in just yet, we estimate that we raised over $4,000 for the fund.
Right before our event today, SAR held a ceremony to present its annual scholarships to Sacramento-area graduating high school seniors. Today SAR gave over $44,000 in scholarships. Did you know that SAR's Scholarship program award dollars exceed that of the California Association of Realtors, and also that of the Nationals Association of Realtors? AMAZING.
This is YPC's second time doing the Vendor Fair fundraiser. Last year's event raised over $3,300, which was donated to the Mustard Seed School at Loaves & Fishes. We already set a date for next year's event, which will take place in early May 2010.
