SBA Raises $50,000 from 2014 Showcase of Homes for Local Charities
The Saratoga Builders Association is proud to present the proceeds totaling $50,000 from the 2014 Saratoga Showcase of Homes to two local charities:
$34,000 to Rebuilding Together Saratoga
$16,000 to Habitat for Humanity
The Saratoga Builders Association has contributed more than $875,000 to our local charities from this event.
The 2014 edition of the Saratoga Showcase of Homes was outstanding, with 12 award-winning builders presenting 13 homes. This year’s showcase was a great success with over 3,000 tickets purchased to tour the beautiful new homes on display over three weekends. The builders’ artistry – along with the many talented designers who helped showcase their fine work – gave our community an opportunity to preview current trends in building, landscaping, decorating and interior design. In what has become an autumn tradition in our area, the Saratoga Builders Association is looking forward to keeping this long running show (which just concluded its 19th year) an integral part of the fabric in our fall season.
The 2014 Saratoga Showcase of Homes “People’s Choice” award winners were also announced – Congratulations to Classic Homes by Brian K. Smith for the Classic Home category, VanVeghten Construction for the Executive Home category, and Witt Construction for the Luxury Home category.
Winning the “People’s Choice” category for best Showcase Chef was Zest Cooks, capturing this culinary award for the second consecutive year.
Karan Hankinson, an agent at Roohan Realty and owner of Karan Hankinson Interiors, also won an award for Best Interior Design.
