Kentucky REALTOR® Ring Day Raises Nearly $21,000 for Salvation Army

Kentucky REALTORS® is proud to announce that the statewide participation total for the second annual Kentucky REALTOR® Ring Day reached $20,901.29. This total is cumulative from the state REALTOR® association and fourteen different local REALTOR® associations across the Commonwealth.

Leading the way again this year was the Paducah Board of REALTORS®. The area total raised there reached $8,984.08 thanks to a matching donation from that board of $2,500.

2019 KYR President, Rip Phillips, is pleased that so many REALTORS® are choosing to give back to their communities in this way. “It’s great to see REALTORS® out in the community and putting a face to the giving spirit we try to embody all year through. We’re proud of our track record of investing time in the places we live and work. Spreading a little Christmas cheer in the process is just an added bonus.”

The Salvation Army has been helping coordinate “Ring Days” for different organizations for years, but this event marked the second time that Kentucky REALTORS® and other REALTOR® local associations teamed up to help with the kettle campaign. Kettles were staffed at retail outlets where shoppers were greeted and invited to donate.
