Habitat for Humanity of Broward Raises Awareness and More Than $300,000 during 4th Annual CEO Build at ‘A Rick Case Habitat Community’ in Pompano Beach
POMPANO BEACH, Fla. (March 6, 2023) – More than 50 CEOs and C-suite leaders from many of South Florida’s largest companies came together to raise awareness and over $300,000 in support of affordable workforce housing in Broward County during Habitat for Humanity of Broward’s 4th annual CEO Build on Saturday, March 4. The task at hand for the event included top executives dedicating time and effort to help roof four homes at “A Rick Case Habitat Community,” a historic 76-home community in Pompano Beach.
Event co-chairs Brent Burns, President and CEO of JM Family Enterprises, Inc. and Keith Koenig, Chairman of City Furniture, led the task force to support affordable workforce housing in Broward County, the most cost-burdened housing market in the country.
“These CEO Build participants understand the critical need for affordable workforce housing in our community and chose to be a force for change and be a part of the solution,” said Nancy Robin CEO and Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity of Broward. “They collectively lead hundreds of thousands of employees.”
By June of this year, 58 homes will be completed in “A Rick Case Habitat Community.”
Additionally, Habitat Broward has acquired land and plans to build 20 townhomes in the “BBI Village” community in Fort Lauderdale and 13 townhomes in Coral Springs. Open enrollment for these energy-efficient, affordable townhomes closes on March 31, 2023. This is a great opportunity for qualified applicants to start their journey to homeownership.
This year’s event was made possible thanks to the generous sponsorship from JM Family Enterprise Inc., CITY Furniture, Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood, Law Offices of Austin Pamies Norris Weeks Powell PLLC, South Florida Business Journal and Exquisite Catering by Robert.
