Support the #KeepCraftAlive Scholarship Program at the International Builders Show Next Month
Meet face-to-face with fellow professionals, celebrate their commitment to quality, and raise funds for the #KeepCraftAlive scholarship program.
As part of its presence at IBS 2018, Fine Homebuilding will lead a #KeepCraftAlive Scholarship Fundraising Event, on Wednesday, Jan. 10, from 7-9 pm at The Pub Orlando. It will be a fun evening of fundraising, networking, and giveaways from some of the best brands in building. A ticket to the event costs $35-$50, and Fine Homebuilding is donating 100% of the event ticket sale proceeds to the #KeepCraftAlive Scholarship Fund to support the next generation of craftsmen, and will also match donations dollar-for-dollar up to its goal of raising $10,000.
The evening includes networking with Fine Homebuilding Editors and Ambassadors, a self-serve Craft Beer Tap Wall, heavy appetizers, swagbags, and cool product giveaways! Please click here to reserve your ticket. You can even do so after the event to make a donation — just click to VIEW DETAILS.
