'Build For The Cure' Holds Check Presentation
To Susan G. Komen For $30,000!
For the second time in Palm Beach County, the South Florida Affiliate
of Susan G. Komen for the Cure® teamed up with Dreamstar Custom Homes
to create the “Build for the Cure” show home. The home, which is
located in the exclusive Palm Beach Gardens community of Old Palm Golf
Club, was used to raise funds for the Komen South Florida Affiliate,
the largest grassroots initiative for finding a cure for breast cancer.
Komen South Florida Affiliate adds, “The South Florida Affiliate of
Susan G. Komen for the Cure is very pleased to have partnered with
Dreamstar Custom Homes on a most unique fundraising effort. ‘Build for
the Cure 2010’ raised $45,000 for the many breast health programs that
we fund in our service area. In addition, the ‘Build for the Cure 2013’
has helped afford us the opportunity to attract
additional community support that will help to expand our
database of supporters and attract new volunteers to our organization.
This is a very creative project and it is an honor to be affiliated
with such a prestigious builder.”
“Tere and Michael Borgia who contracted the home, generously permitted
Dreamstar Custom Homes to dedicate their residence as the ‘2013 Build
for the Cure’ benefit home,” Handler said. “The Borgias are the most
generous couple and are tickled pink with the idea that monies
generated from the construction of their home will directly benefit the
local Komen organization. In addition to donating the use of their home
for charity, they have taken the initiative to build ‘green,’ therefore
creating a lighter footprint on our environment.”
Upon completion of the home last month, Dreamstar Custom Homes was able
to present a check to Susan G. Komen South Florida for $30,000! With
the help of the Borgia family, Old Palm Golf Club, Susan G. Komen South
Florida and, of course, the staff and subcontractors of Dreamstar
Custom Homes, this donation was made possible.
