And the winner is.... ORRA's "The Voice" contest results
Friday, June 27, 2014
|ORRA Chairman Zola Szerencses and Cherry-Ann Parris, Watson Realty Corp., strike a pose in preparation for the evening's Best 80s Costume Contest.
A totally awesome mix of music from the 1980s, including live performances by four 80s-loving REALTORS®, psyched a lively crowd into giving more than $30,000 to the REALTOR® Political Action Committee.
Event attendees bid on silent and live auction items, bought raffle tickets, and purchased "votes" to cast for their costume.
ORRA's The Voice contest was won by Susie Reale, Reale Realty, Inc., whose rendition of "Alone" by Heart earned her the judges' nod for the top prize of $1,000.
The contest's additional three finalists (four finalists were selected in advance by the RPAC Subcommittee) each walked away with $250:
Antoinette L. Giles, Century 21 Roo Realty ("I Keep Forgettin'" by Michael McDonald)
Jose Rodriguez, Premium Properties Real Estate Services (Rock With You" by Michael Jackson)
Michael Wood, Realty Executives Seminole ("I'll Stop The World" by Modern English)
The evening's most hotly contested live-auction item was a reserved parking spot at ORRA, which was purchased in tandem for $6,200 by Bruce Elliott, ORRA's vice-chairman of strategic planning, and Robert Palmer, owner of event sponsor and ORRA diamond partner RP Funding.
