HomeAid Houston was recently awarded $9,427.34, funds that were raised at the 3rd annual Finch Properties Charity Fish Fry held at Ecclesia Houston. Finch Properties, a boutique style real estate brokerage firm hosted dozens of guests while partnering with generous sponsors to raise these valuable funds for HomeAid, their charity of choice. HomeAid Houston is a 501 c 3 charity of the Greater Houston Builders Association (GHBA).
Finch Properties served up fully loaded plates of beautifully prepared fresh-caught fried fish, delicious sides and a mouthwatering dessert. This family-oriented event provided entertainment that included a DJ, party animals, carnival games and face painting.
" I enjoy what I do because I love the feeling that comes with helping someone find their home," said Stephanie Finch, "and HomeAid does exactly that for homeless families and children. Last year's storm impacted everyone on some level and still does, so the need for their mission is even greater now than ever before."
Contributors to this grand total included: Finch Properties, and donations from Suzanne Currie, Janis Finch, Jo Merrily King and Kelsey Sledge.
Sponsors included Allegiance Title, Richard Haskell with Cornerstone Home Lending, Rise Cupcakes, and Hope Spring Water
