The Annual IREM Fashion Show and Silent Auction was held in Tulsa on September 24th. This year a grand total of $10,000 was raised to benefit the Child Abuse Network (CAN). Over $6,000 was collected from the local apartment communities for the coin drive and another $4,000 was raised in the Silent Auction. The theme was disco!
Marcia B worked the coin van with the Michael Bennett, Vice President of Midfirst Bank, and Laurie Bennett of Cascade Affordable. Midfirst Bank matched the first $1,500 raised and used their coin van to count the change. Leinbach Company also matched $1,500. Espo Construction donated $2,000 to cover food costs. Lynco, American Residential, Case & Associates, Asset Plus, Legacy, Vector, Estancia and Apartment Finder sponsored tables at the dinner.
Robyn Brooks gave a personal tribute and spoke on behalf of CAN for their appreciation of the money raised to help this great cause.
