RAIN auction raises $2,000

More than 100 members of the Kitsap County Association of Realtors gathered in December for the annual RAIN Fund luncheon and auction.

Founded in 1994 with the sole purpose of providing support to Realtor and Affiliate members who need financial assistance due to catastrophic medical problems or devastating loss of family income, the RAIN (Realtor and Affiliate in Need) fund is supported by voluntary contributions by the membership.

The annual event raised more than $2,000, according to Mike Eliason, executive director of the association. In 2013, the association gave nearly $10,000 to assist members in need, he said.
