(PORTLAND, OR – May 18, 2017) The Portland Metropolitan Association of Realtors® Masters Circle held its 13th annual silent auction on Thursday, May 18th at the DoubleTree by Hilton Portland.
Sixty-six items were auctioned off to a crowd of 136 Realtors® and real estate industry professionals. A grand total of $10,730 was raised with 100% of the funds going to Northwest Children’s Outreach.
Each year, the Masters Circle selects a charitable organization in the Portland metro area to support through this event. In addition to recognizing the achievements of top Realtors®, the Masters Circle is committed to holding real estate agents to a high standard of professionalism and community service involvement. It is in this spirit that the Masters Circle gives back to the community in which their members work each year through the silent auction.
Northwest Children’s Outreach (NCO) is an all-volunteer non-profit that serves impoverished children ages zero to 18. NCO provides basic resources like clothing, diapers and hygiene items to care providers that work directly with the families in need.
NCO has six physical locations for the collection and distribution of these items. They invite the community to bring donations and volunteers to serve children in need.
“I’m honored that Northwest Children’s Outreach was selected as the beneficiary of this year’s Masters Circle auction. The funds raised will have a life-changing impact on hundreds of disadvantaged children across the Portland metro area,” says Northwest Children’s Outreach Executive Director Candace Leslie.
