LONGMONT – Barb Bashor, a Realtor with WK Real Estate, delivered the opening remarks at the Colorado Women’s Education Foundation (CWEF) scholarship fundraising event, “A Turning Point: Educating Colorado Women,” held at the Xilinx Retreat Center in Longmont on Saturday, March 18.
Bashor, who has assisted clients with real estate sales and purchases throughout Boulder County for nearly 25 years, is also passionate about supporting philanthropic community efforts, such as the CWEF.
