Cabinets & Designs values our relationship with our community partners, and this month we are highlighting the Greater Houston Builders Association. GHBA is a trade association whose members are involved in the development, homebuilding, and remodeling industry across seven counties. Chartered in 1941, the GHBA has been working to develop a network of government, community, and public relationships for forty years, with the goal of enhancing the business climate for members while also providing quality, obtainable housing for the community.
GHBA provides many wonderful volunteer opportunities throughout the year. Their events calendar features many GHBA-sponsored events that make a difference in Houston. Here are just a few:
• Annual Charity Golf Tournament supports HomeAid Houston: Tuesday, April 23, 2013
• AIA SandCastle Competition on Galveston’s East Beach benefitting AIA Houston & ArCh Foundation: Saturday, June 1, 2013
• Adopt a Family Holiday Program
• Remodeler’s Council Charity Garage Sale which benefits a different charity each year. Last year approximately $18,000 was raised!
• BABA (Bay Area Builders Association)/GHBA supports Operation Finally Home: A group which provides mortgage-free homes to wounded and disabled veterans, and widows of the fallen.
We would also like to thank GHBA for naming our own Maria Frank as “Newsmaker of the Week” in the Greater Houston Builders Association’s March 2013 newsletter. We are proud to work with GHBA and help them support the greater Houston community.
