Pulte Homes, local builder in a variety of different Lake Nona communities, was recently able to raise $70,000 to benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Florida (RMHCCF) at the homebuilder’s fourth annual Building to Make Lives Better Golf Tournament at Lake Nona Golf & Country Club.
“So many children and their families will be helped by this fundraising effort,” says Clint Ball, division president for PulteGroup’s North Florida division. “We are proud to be part of this worthwhile effort of helping to maintain places where parents can be close to their children to help them heal,” he said.
When PulteGroup initiated the tournament, they first began to look for a family-oriented charity that was local. “A place where children, while receiving treatment at the hospital, could be with their families was an easy choice,” says Claire Baldocchi, a marketing coordinator for PulteGroup. “The families in our communities are an extension of our own, and we know that ‘home’ is wherever your family is. Raising money for the Ronald McDonald House allows us to help make it possible for the whole family to be there to love and support a child who is sick.”
Pulte’s efforts in the local community extend far beyond RMHCCF. They also have worked with The Second Harvest Food Bank on numerous occasions and have participated in a backpack drive for back to school. PulteGroup is also very proud of their Built to Honor homes, which are constructed in a partnership with Operation Finally Home, an organization that identifies soldiers who would be candidates for receiving a mortgage-free home.
“To be able to raise $70,000 for the Ronald McDonald House is such an honor, knowing that we’re helping keep them together during a time when they need it most. The power of family is like nothing else!” says Baldocchi.
