$11,895 Raised for Scholarships for Local High School Seniors
The HBADOC Foundation has awarded $262,000 to 246 area students over the last 20 years. The eight-member HBA Foundation Board of Directors works as a separate entity of the larger association, with three of these members having served since the inception of the Foundation. "Meeting these students, the future of our industry, is why I have served on this board for 20 years" states Michele Myers of M Squared Builders, the Secretary/Treasurer of the HBA Foundation. HBA CEO and Foundation Executive Director Holly Fraccaro shares, "I could not be more proud to serve the HBA of Durham, Orange and Chatham Counties and its Foundation. The charitable spirit of this association was the ultimate decision-making factor for me in accepting this position."
As part of their fundraising efforts, the HBADOC hosted a Casino Night Fundraising event on November 16 at the PNC Triangle Club at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park. Over 130 members enjoyed a night of casino games, a silent auction and a live auction, led by Doug Davis.
Founded in 1962, the HBDOC is affiliated with the National Association of Home Builders and the North Carolina Home Builders Association. It has more than 600 members who are builders, developers, subcontractors, suppliers, and professionals in businesses related to residential construction.
