Golfing for a Good Cause

The homebuilding industry spent some time this summer on golf courses for good causes.

Pulte Homes held its seventh annual golf tournament in July to raise money for the Housing First Foundation. More than 144 golfers took to the course for this year’s tournament at Dwan Golf Course in Bloomington.

“We look forward to the Pulte golf tournament every year,” said Stephen Roche, Housing First Minnesota Foundation president. “It’s great to have a member company step up in such a big way to support the Foundation.”

This year Pulte Homes raised over $20,000 for the Foundation. Custom One Homes also hit the greens for a good cause this summer. It hosted its annual golf tournament fundraiser at Prestwick Golf Course in July. Each year the tournament has helped Custom One raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

“Our team takes pride in not only building homes but also building generosity and crafting kindness in our own backyard,” said Todd Polifka, president of Custom One Homes. “We look forward to this event every year as it helps us continue our efforts to give back to the community.”

With the help of volunteers, trade partners, and presenting sponsors Contract Interiors and Twin City Fireplace & Stone Co., the tournament raised $45,000 this year.
