128 golfers teed off at The Club at Ravenna on Monday, September 24, 2018 to raise money for the Home Builders Foundation in their annual Clubs for a Cause golf tournament, presented by Boise Cascade. The day featured a “chaos putt” where individuals opted for a chance to be closest to the hole, while all putting together; raffle with fabulous prizes; betting holes and contests; as well as box lunch, dinner and awards reception. The backdrop of The Club at Ravenna made for a beautiful day, raising money – nearly $80,000! – in support of the HBF’s program to support individuals with disabilities through home modifications.
“Boise Cascade is a long-time supporter of the HBF and their work. We are proud to sponsor events, as well as support projects through material and skilled labor donations. We are thrilled to be here as the tournament’s Presenting Sponsor once again as the HBF raises critical funds to ensure a positive impact in our community.” – Dan Merciez, Sales Manager of the Presenting Sponsor, Boise Cascade
The group was also able to hear from a Theresa M and her son, Carson C., who are 2006 and 2018 HBF recipients. They spoke about the impact the HBF has had on their family over the years and with the most recent accommodation, which included a “bachelor pad” for Carson, an 18-year-old with cerebral palsy. When asked to sum up the HBF in one work, Theresa said “Relief” and Carson said “Freedom”.
