The 2014 Mercedes-Benz Raffle is coming to Realty Round Up! Benefitting the Austin Board of REALTORS® (ABoR) Foundation scholarship fund, the raffle supports deserving Central Texas high school students with the resources they need to succeed in college. Support a great cause while getting the chance to drive away with a brand new Mercedes-Benz GLK 350 and a trip to Germany!
In May, the ABoR Foundation was thrilled to award $62,500 in scholarships to 22 college-bound high school students and three alumni, donating $2,500 to each student’s future education. The foundation selected the students from over 200 applications and chose candidates for their backgrounds, skills and extracurricular activities, but placed heavy value on one factor in particular — community involvement.
“These students have displayed excellence in academics and are already making a difference within their local communities” comments ABoR Foundation Chair Susan Horton. “The ABoR Foundation is tremendously proud of the students we were able to support this year.”
Rising tuition prices have made scholarships critical — especially for those working their way through school. Alumni recipient Cheyenne King delivered a heartfelt speech at the May ceremony discussing her story: After working two jobs in high school, the scholarship gave her the crucial boost she needed to alleviate her financial stress and focus on her education.
This year’s raffle winner will be announced at the 2014 Realty Round Up trade show! There’s still time to purchase a raffle ticket online at Abor.com/Foundation to support this worthy cause. Tickets cost $100 each, three for $200, or 15 for $1,000. Only 1,500 will be sold, so be sure to get yours before they sell out! Don’t miss the Realty Round Up raffle drawing event to find out if you’re the lucky winner! (Note: The Raffle winner does NOT have to be present at Realty Round Up to win the car and trip).
