The ORRA’s Got Talent Contest crown was taken home by Shane Carson, Exit Real Estate Gallery, who wowed the crowd with his rendition of "Stand By Me.” Buoyed by a personal fan club, Shane garnered the most votes and is now $1,000 richer!
The contest’s four other finalists (selected in advance by the RPAC Subcommittee from field of 13) each walked away with $250:
- Amber Smith (singing)
Premium Properties Real Estate Services;
- Tu Le (break dancing)
Keller Williams Advantage 2;
- Dale Parker (banjo)
Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate; and
- Caroline Serrano-Siddiqui (singing)
Ameriteam Realty, Inc.;
The evening’s most hotly contested live-auction items were a pair of Michael Buble concert tickets, an enormous gift basket, and a reserved spot in the ORRA parking lot that sparked an intense bidding war between past chairmen (and ultimately went for $2,500!).
