Home Builders Association Lakeway/Bee Cave Chapter donates over $4,300 to Lake Travis area non-profit
Lakeway, Texas (October 6, 2016) – This week, the Lakeway/Bee Cave Chapter of the Home Builders Association (HBA) of Greater Austin made a donation of $4,360 to local, Lake Travis charity group Families for Families. Gayle Berkbigler CCIM, KW Commercial co-founder of the Lakeway/Bee Cave Chapter and founder of “The Gayle Berkbigler HBA Golf Classic,” presented the check at this month’s Chapter meeting at a local restaurant, Fore.
Gayle Berkbigler CCIM, KW Commercial founded the Lakeway/Bee Cave Chapter Annual Community Fundraiser Golf Tournament seven years ago for the Lakeway/Bee Cave Chapter of the HBA. The annual golf tournament has been held at Flintrock Falls Country Club for the last six years. Proceeds from each tournament have been donated to local Lake Travis charities. Families for Families has been the chosen recipient for the last four years.
In January 2015, The HBA of Greater Austin named the golf tournament after Gayle Berkbigler, the tournament’s founder and director and is now named the “Gayle Berkbigler HBA Golf Classic.”
Families for Families is an official non-profit organization registered with the Texas Secretary of State that was started in September 2009 as an Eagle Scout project of Lake Travis High School Students and has continued to be run and operated by Lake Travis High School Students. Families for Families helps local, Lake Travis families assist, or “adopt,” Lake Travis families in need during the holiday season. Most families receiving assistance have homes and cars, but Christmas gifts are not possible without the generosity of other caring families.
“We are all capable of helping someone in some way,” says spokesman of Families for Families. “There is always someone in need more than us, and whether it is a neighbor that needs help with yard work or a little girl who cannot afford batteries, there is always a life that we can impact.”
