Realtors raise nearly $11,000 in turkey blitz

Members of the Grand Junction Area Realtors Association collected nearly $11,000 in 72 hours during a fund-raising event dubbed a turkey blitz to purchase turkeys for the Salvation Army.

“We have such a strong, community minded membership, and I couldn’t be more proud of their efforts,” said Lynn Gillespie, a real estate agent with RE/MAX Two Rivers Realty who serves as chairwoman of GJARA. “It’s such a good feeling to know we are helping to make the holidays a little more festive for families in need.”
