Home Builders’ awards a success

This past Saturday night was one of the biggest evenings of the year for our Central Alberta home builders.

Their association, the Canadian Home Builders Association – Central Alberta’s (CHBA-CA) Awards of Excellence in Housing Show attracted 553 guests from home builders, tradesman, suppliers and professional service businesses to support the annual event.

There were a lot winners this past Saturday night, but the big awards of the evening went to Platinum Homes for the Builder of the year for Small Volume, and Laebon Homes for Builder of the Year Large Volume. Small volume equals 25 homes or less, and large volume is for over 25.

“I need to thank all of my team, our tradesman and supply companies, but we also need to thank our clients, for without them we wouldn’t have been able to achieve this amazing award,” said Terry Loewen, President of Platinum Homes.

This event is also a large fundraising opportunity for our charity, the Build and Golf a Kid to Cure. This charity supports children’s oncology research and also supports many local initiatives as well.

From one wheelbarrow full of lively spirits, valued at about $1,000 we raised over $18,000 thanks to the very generous members of the Association. Most of the builders in attendance provided us with a donation along with many of the suppliers and trades companies as well. Quite exciting.

The CHBA-CA Awards banquet is one of the Association’s premiere events and it’s organized by Association volunteer members and sponsors that contribute thousands of dollars per year, and it’s always a pleasure to be involved and part of the Association. Thank you to all of the sponsors and volunteers that created the event once again.
