Los Gatos/Saratoga District Pumpkin Auction on Wednesday, Oct. 14.

Members of the Silicon Valley Association of REALTORS® (SILVAR) continue to help those in need in their communities, especially around this time, as the holidays draw near. The SILVAR Los Gatos/Saratoga District Pumpkin Auction on Oct. 14 raised over $3,600 for Operation Reindeer, thanks to all donations of time, effort and money from SILVAR members and their companies.

Thank you Chris Morris (Alain Pinel REALTORS® – Los Gatos) for serving as auctioneer, Mary Kay Groth (Sereno Group – Los Gatos) and Diane Chandler (Alain Pinel REALTORS® – Los Gatos) for organizing the fun event, and Leslie Butlar for helping keep track of the winners. Kudos to Diane, who made many of the pumpkin centerpieces!

Many thanks for the contributions from the following companies: Keller Williams, Alain Pinel Realtors, Opes Advisors, Coldwell Banker, Intero Real Estate, Sereno Group, Montalvo Realty, and the individuals that donated the items and members who generously bid on them!
