2017 Showcase Raised $75K for Charities
Checks Presented to Rebuilding Together and Habitat for Humanity
The Saratoga Builders Association presented two checks totaling $75,000 to Rebuilding Together Saratoga County and Habitat for Humanity of Northern Saratoga, Warren and Washington Counties, making 2017 a record-breaking year for their annual Showcase of Homes event, which passed the million dollar mark for lifetime donations raised last year.
The organization also announced the winners of this year’s Realtors Choice and People’s Choice awards, with McPadden Builders winning both titles for 11 Conklin Court in the Classic Home category. The home – a single story cottage with three bedrooms & two baths – took home five more “Best Of” awards for Landscaping, Master Bath, Interior Decorating, Kitchen and Floor Plan (Runner Up), and earned Best Craftsmanship for the 3rd consecutive year.
Located in Wilton’s Craw Farm subdivision, you can see a time-lapse video of the award-winning home being built on YouTube.
Thinking of building? McPadden Builders has communities throughout Saratoga County: Craw Farm, Ridge View Estates, Huckleberry Finn Estates, The Elms at Saratoga & Wyndham Way. Maps, photos & floorplans at McPaddenBuilders.com.
Congratulations to our friends at McPadden Builders on their outstanding work, and thank you to all attendees and builders for helping to make this year’s event a success for our entire community.
About Rebuilding Together Saratoga County
Rebuilding Together Saratoga County transforms the lives of low-income homeowners by improving the safety and health of their homes and revitalizing our communities. When qualified homeowners are not capable of making needed repairs, RTSC will coordinate the volunteers, contractors, tools and supplies necessary to fix the homes. These services are provided at no cost to the homeowner.
In the 14 years since our founding, RTSC has renovated and revitalized 836 homes and 77 nonprofit centers with the help of more than 7,400 volunteers who have dedicated 45,500 hours of their time, bringing hope and renewed pride to homeowners in need throughout Saratoga County.
About Habitat for Humanity
Habitat for Humanity of Northern Saratoga, Warren, and Washington Counties is a volunteer based non-profit whose mission is to create affordable housing for low to moderate income families. Habitat builds and rehabilitates homes using volunteer labor and donated materials, and then finances the home for a family within 40-60% of the county’s median income with a zero interest, 30 year mortgage. The local affiliate recently completed their 28th home build and opened a ReStore to sell donated building materials and home furnishings to the public. All proceeds from the ReStore go directly into the construction of Habitat’s homes.
About the Saratoga Showcase of Homes
The Saratoga Showcase of Homes is an annual fall tradition celebrating Saratoga County’s most exceptional homes built by some of our finest member builders. Spanning three weekends, the event features the latest in building techniques and products, beautiful interior decorations, and high-quality furnishings from some of the area’s top designers.
