ANDOVER — RE/MAX Partners participated in Andover Days, coordinated by the Downtown Association, on Sept. 15. The RE/MAX office held a raffle for someone to win an iPad, with all monies raised from the sale of raffle tickets being donated to the Andover Youth Foundation. The winner of the iPad raffle was Donna Traverso of Methuen.

At an office meeting, RE/MAX Partners was able to present a check for $1,251 to the Andover Youth Foundation. They also had their RE/MAX hot air balloon, Big MAX, on the Doherty Middle School grounds. Unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate for the RE/MAX Hot Air Balloon and they were not able to give tethered rides. However, many of the people who came to see Big MAX were impressed and excited to see a hot air balloon up close.
