In previous years the REALTORS® Community Foundation has had an amazing silent auction but this year the auction couldn’t take place but was replaced with the Santa Swag Sale – The SWAG Sale has been coordinated with a few vendors who have agreed to donate a portion of all sales referred by RCF to the Foundation. We ask you to consider picking up client Christmas gifts, or event gifts for family and friends through the SWAG Sale referral links below to amplify your gift-giving a little bit this holiday season and remember to mention RCF when you purchase. HURRY you only have till November 20th, 2020!

A great way to have fun and support a great cause.
