The Home Builders Foundation (HBF) held their 13th Annual Benefit Dinner and Rock-n-Auction on Saturday, April 3, 2010 at the Crystal Ballroom in Portland, Oregon. The HBF was founded in 1997 and directs the philanthropic activities of the home building community by providing shelter for area residents in need and supporting the future of the building industry by offering mentorship and educational opportunities for tomorrow's workforce.
The evening was a memorable affair that brought together close to 400 HBF supporters, members, and friends from the community.
New this year at the dinner and auction was the HBF’s Celebrity Waiter dinner program. Portland Fire Chief John Klum was among other community leaders, entrepreneurs, entertainers, and philanthropists that served gourmet meals to the attending guests at the evening’s dinner and auction.
All proceeds for the evening, including tips collected by the Celebrity Waiters, benefitted the HBF’s shelter and workforce development programs.
