Realtors gather linen for KAAP

Members of the Kingman/Golden Valley Association of Realtors sponsored a luncheon at the Dambar and Steakhouse in support of Kingman Aid to Abused People. All participants donated new linens to the domestic violence shelter. The Realtors and affiliates collected an estimated $875 worth of bedding.
