Networking Event Continues #KeepCraftAlive Fundraising at PCBC
Building-trade pros contributed to the scholarship fund; met industry peers; and enjoyed swag, drinks, and food after the PCBC show on June 27.
This year, organizer Fine Homebuilding is working to continue that effort, with a fundraiser and networking event after the PCBC show on June 27, 2018, at the ThirstyBear Organic Brewery in San Francisco. About 60 people attended, each donating at least $40 to $60 to the cause.
The evening featured networking with builders and craftsmen from all over the nation, as well as fundraising and giveaways from some of the best industry brands. The event was co-sponsored and supported by CertainTeed and Pella Corporation.
Attendees met with Fine Homebuilding editors and ambassadors; enjoyed organic craft beer, sangria, and Spanish tapas; and receive swag bags full of gear and gifts.
All net profits from event ticket sales will be donated to the Fine Homebuilding #KeepCraftAlive scholarship fund with SkillsUSA in order to help close the skills gap and support the next generation of craftsmen and women.
Fine Homebuilding will also match dollar for dollar any additional donations beyond ticket sales to help support the cause.
