McGuyer Homebuilders donated $15,000 to the Houston Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure as part of the ‘Built for the Cure’ campaign. Love’s VP of Public Relations, Jessica Manning, attended this event and spoke about being a part of Komen Houston.
McGuyer Homebuilders, Inc. (MHI) through its signature brands Plantation Homes, Coventry Homes, Pioneer Homes and Carmel Builders, the first large Houston home builder to partner with the Houston Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, donated a part of the proceeds from the sale of its homes to the organization.
The donation is the result of the company’s ‘Built for the Cure’ Marketing campaign that is dedicated to raising awareness of and finding a cure for breast cancer.
To celebrate the successful raising of funds for the Houston Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the cure, MHI employees, executives, and Komen Affiliate team members celebrated the event with a small reception at the builder’s corporate office. It was also announced at the event that the company team “Built for the Cure” will participate in this year’s Komen Race for the Cure held on Saturday, October 1, 2011 in Downtown Houston.
Known for its award winning home designs, the builder has also become known for its successful efforts in giving back to the community.
Last year, in Houston the company made a significant commitment to support an organization dedicated to finding a cure for breast cancer, announcing its partnership with the Houston Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure. This year, the builder has added to its commitment to the Houston Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure as a sponsor of its Impact Awards.
Plantation Homes is a platinum sponsor of this important event that was established to honor grant recipients and outstanding donors and volunteers. The event is also designed to inform the community of where and how money raised at Komen Houston events will be used.
The ‘Built for the Cure’ marketing campaign is a focal point of all of the company’s marketing efforts from signs in model homes to marketing in print and electronic media. In addition to increasing an awareness of the disease, buyers know that a portion of the proceeds from their new home will be donated to the organization known for bringing worldwide attention to breast cancer; with the money going directly to the Houston Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
