For over ten years, the Santa Clara County Association of Realtors has supported K. Smith School through their annual pumpkin auction. Each year every classroom decorates pumpkins to be auctioned to the highest bidder at the SCCAOR Halloween celebration. The event raises more than $10,000 annually for supplies and school improvements.

Partnerships, like the one K. Smith has with SCCAOR, is built on the values of improving the community. It’s continued success is linked to keeping the group and our school connected beyond just the October event. SCCAOR members have been experts in projects and Career Day speakers, too. It’s a great partnership with a great organization.
