DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — A big “way to go” today for staff and members at Broken Sound Club for helping those who need a little help secure a home through support for Habitat for Humanity.
According to Habitat:
For one Delray Beach family being at home has never meant more following the May 19th dedication ceremony for their Habitat for Humanity home sponsored by Broken Sound Club. The Club supported the build of the home, Habitat’s 95th in South Palm Beach County, with a donation of $50,000 and a pledge of 200 volunteer hours by club staff.
New homeowner Claretta Pickett and her 12 year-old son Darius expressed their gratitude at the event. “It is not only a dream come true but a blessing to know we have and own a house,” Darius wrote in a letter of thanks.
Mike Campbell, Director of Habitat for Humanity South Palm Beach, recognized Broken Sound Club’s role, the many hours of work by volunteers and the new homeowners, followed by a blessing of the home.
Cathy Grana, Assistant General Manager of Broken Sound Club congratulated the new homeowners on behalf of the Board, members and staff of Broken Sound. Each Broken Sound department also gave a gift to the new homeowners. “Having a place of one’s own to call home is important to every family. Habitat’s important work makes this possible and it is our pleasure to be a part of it,” said Grana.
