Teeing off to build homes

The winning team was from nTelos, and second place went to Central Virginia Carpet Cleaners from Palmyra. The tournament ended with a luncheon and prizes, with names for the raffle prizes pulled by Habitat’s next home recipient.
Fluvanna Habitat has two major fundraisers every year, the annual appeal letter and the golf tournament. With income from the tournament steadily declining over the past three years, and the continued success of their mission at stake, leadership faced the decision of either cancelling the tournament or changing it completely. They decided to try something new and change every aspect of the tournament, including date, time, venue and format. The hope was to enhance the golf experience for all participants and increase badly needed revenue. A larger bottom line benefits those individuals who work hard to deserve their own home.
Too many Fluvanna County residents live in sub-standard housing, reside in cramped quarters with family members, or pay rent that consumes 1/2 to 2/3 of their monthly paycheck. This year, five families have completed a rigorous financial management course in hopes of partnering with Habitat. Habitat is proud of the two families that are ready for homes and continues to work with the three other families that are continuing their journey to home ownership. As an organization, Fluvanna Habitat is striving to triple the amount of homes they build in a year, from one to three, so they can fulfill the goal of eliminating sub-standard housing, which in turn means helping three times as many families achieve the dream of home ownership.
