400 guests gathered at Marriott Denver South Park Meadows on November 1, 2018 to celebrate the year in review for the Home Builders Foundation. Katie LaSalle from Denver 7 was back as the emcee of the Annual Luncheon, presented by Alpine Lumber. The luncheon was a celebration that included lunch; recognition of three major HBF community groups – board members, annual supporters, and Project Captains; and also featured five recipients helped during the year. The end of the program included an ask for critical program funds. Event organizers estimate that the event raised $70,000 in support of the organization’s program to support individuals with disabilities through home modifications.
“The Home Builders Foundation is an incredible organization which offers home modifications at no cost to individuals with physical disabilities. These modifications rebuild independence for our recipients within their homes and also allow them to access life and our community outside of their homes. We’re proud to stand alongside the Home Builders Foundation, their amazing cadre of volunteers, and their inspiring participants as they continue their important work serving our community.” – Hamid Taha, President of the Presenting Sponsor, Alpine Lumber
“Independence is a really powerful thing for a person with a disability. We look different, but it’s nice to have the same kind of access to basic things like getting outside. Thanks to the HBF, we are now able to simply get into and out of our back yard to be with family and friends.”
– Justin & Jennifer O., 2018 HBF Recipients
