Each year the Connecticut Association of REALTORS® awards scholarships to the well-deserving children of real estate industry professionals from throughout the state of Connecticut. This year is no different.
In an effort to raise money to award the Raymond F. Gates Memorial Scholarship Fund, CAR holds an online auction. There is still time to bid on some great items that would make wonderful gifts for yourself or someone in your family while pitching in for a wonderful cause.

There are a couple of weeks left to bid on these auction items and there are still a number of great auction items with no bids yet, which gives you a wonderful chance to get a great deal while contributing to this great cause.
Here’s a little more about the Raymond F. Gates Memorial Scholarship Fund:
The Raymond F. Gates, Jr. Memorial Scholarship Fund was established in 1976 in memory of Raymond F. Gates, Jr. following his tragic death in an automobile accident. Mr. Gates was the Executive Vice President of the Connecticut Association of REALTORS® at the time. Originally the fund was intended to assist Mr. Gates’ children through college. Once this was accomplished, the fund was expanded to benefit the children of REALTORS®, REALTOR-ASSOCIATES®, local Board Association Executives and CAR Staff. Over the past 35 years, children of REALTORS®have been awarded scholarships totaling more than $674,000!
