By: BIA of Central Ohio
Proceeds from the sale are donated to the BIA Foundation. In 2014, the Builder's Boneyard raised more than $14,000 for the BIA Foundation, which offers scholarships to local students. BIA partner Habitat for Humanity Mid-Ohio also benefits from the Builder's Boneyard, as unsold items are donated to its ReStore to help fund Habitat programs, which help provide safe, quality and affordable homes for area families in need.
"Last year's Builder's Boneyard Garage Sale completely exceeded all expectations,"
Wissman added that the Central Ohio PWB was recognized as the 2014 Outstanding Council of the Year, receiving the national association's Innovative Program Award for the Builder's Boneyard. With some three dozen local members and opportunities for women in building on the rise, the PWB is a group of professionals who accent BIA membership, offering opportunities for women in the building industry to network, do business and enhance each other's communities.
