A note from Derick King:

As we enter the final month of our 2019 RPAC Fundraising year, we’ve raised 85% or $944,301 toward our $1.1 million goal however we still have some ground to cover. To date, 16,325 of NYSAR’s nearly 60,000 members have invested in RPAC 2019. If you are one of those 40,000+ members that have not yet invested your fair share into RPAC 2019, please consider doing your part to help us reach our shared fundraising goal for the 8th consecutive year. An investment as little as $15 by a new Investor will help NY to build our participation figures and will help NY to move that much closer to reaching our fundraising goal by the November 29 deadline.
