LAKEWOOD RANCH, Fla. – Halfacre Construction Company, a Lakewood Ranch-based commercial construction company, was pleased to be the $10,000 Silver Cape Sponsor for the Farm to Table (aux) fundraising event for The Haven, an organization with a mission to enhance the quality of life for people with unique abilities by encouraging independence, championing inclusion and advocating for individual rights.
“We are so grateful for Halfacre Construction’s support over the years,” said Hallie Peilet, director of development for The Haven. “From helping bring our group homes to life, to sponsoring our events, they have had our back every step of the way as we have continued to grow. To have them as a silver cape sponsor at our gala meant the world to us!”
The event, held at Ed Smith Stadium in Sarasota on October 29, raised approximately $200,000 for the non-profit organization. Guests at the event dined on farm to table cuisine, enjoyed raffles and cocktails, and an auction. Donations will go toward projects to help provide the best life possible for those with disabilities, including The Haven’s residential program.
“We are extremely proud to be a continuous supporter of The Haven and their important mission in our community,” said Jack Cox, president of the Lakewood Ranch-based commercial construction company. “The organization provides crucial services and housing for so many people here in Sarasota and seeing the impact of community giving from events like this is humbling and rewarding.”
