Gardena, CA (PRWEB) August 30, 2006
Habitat for Humanity affiliates in Los Angeles and Orange Counties (http://www.habitatscaa.org) will benefit from The 13th Annual Charity Golf and Tennis Classic sponsored by Fannie Mae at the St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort and Spa in Dana Point. For the past twelve years, the Fannie Mae event has raised over $2 million for Habitat through the support of corporate sponsorships and individuals. A percentage of proceeds from this year’s event (August 31 & September 1) will go toward the Habitat affiliates in Southern California to continue to build safe, affordable housing. Habitat International CEO, Jonathan T.M. Reckford will address guests and draw the winner of a new Audi A3, donated by Audi of Downtown L.A.
“We thank Fannie Mae for their continued commitment to Habitat for Humanity the past twelve years. Their support has helped many local, low-income families realize the joy of owning their own home,” said Cyndi Torres, president of Southern California Association of Affiliates. “This partnership with Fannie Mae is vital to our work in eliminating poverty housing, and we look forward to working with Fannie Mae in the future.”
Last March, Habitat began selling $100 opportunity drawing tickets for the 2006 Audi A3, donated by Audi of Downtown L.A. Jonathan T.M. Reckford will say a few words about Habitat and announce the winner during a cocktail reception August 31. Tickets may be purchased up until August 30 at http://www.habitatla.org and winners need not be present. A silent auction will include prizes donated by Angels Baseball, Disneyland, Los Angeles Clippers, Omni Hotels, Pasadena Symphony, Ritz Carlton, St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort, Staples Center and more.
