Two realty associations came together to donate to the Rich Center for Autism Monday. 

The Youngstown Columbiana Association of Realtors and the Beaver Creek Area Association of realtors donated a check for $16,000 the groups raised during a golf outing. 

The money will be added to a fund for the building.

"We are in the middle of a capital campaign. We are renovating the building. We have a $7,000,000 goal, and we are about 47 percent towards our goal, and so this $16,000 will certainly help us reach that goal," said Melanie Carfolo, Rich Center for Autism Executive Director. 

The Rich Center for Autism provides a unique learning experience for children of all ages with autism.
