Habitat For Humanity Seeks Ceos To Build Home


Staff report

Own a business? Looking to give back? Habitat for Humanity of South Palm Beach County is looking for 70 top executives to raise money and build a “Home that CEOs Built” for a low-income family.

The second annual CEO Build will take place on Oct. 19 and 20.

As part of this signature fundraising event, the 70 CEOs will not only help with financial sponsorship of $150,000, but also with hands-on building as they don hard hats, install and finish drywall, paint the interior and exterior, and learn new carpentry skills. No building experience is necessary. C-Suite executive builders and business owners will work under the guidance of construction professionals alongside the future Habitat homeowners.

One hundred percent of the money raised will underwrite the construction materials for the home they are building. Habitat’s “Fund for Humanity” program  helps hard-working, low income families in the South Palm Beach County community who have been unable to qualify for traditional bank mortgages.

A “CEO Build” kick-off and orientation reception will be hosted CEO Sponsor: Boca Raton Resort & Club on Sept. 6 at 5:30 p.m. at 501 East restaurant.

Reuniting and new CEO Builders will enjoy camaraderie in a relaxed, island themed evening overlooking the newly renovated greens of the Boca Raton Resort and Club. The evening kick-offs the official CEO BUILD and recognizes those who have committed to raising or giving $2,500.
