Denver, CO (PRWEB) August 26, 2008
Granite Loan Management's 10th annual Strategies for Success in Construction Lending (SSCL) Seminar will offer attendees the chance to give back to New Orleans with a "Big Hearts in the Big Easy" service day. This will take place on opening day of the SSCL seminar, held December 2-4, 2008 at The Ritz-Carlton, New Orleans in New Orleans, Louisiana.
SSCL attendees may join in a guided tour "The Rebuilding of New Orleans (A Special Look at New Orleans: Recovery, Restore & Renew)." This tour of the city below sea level will educate participants about New Orleans' rich history, stately architecture and historic areas that are undergoing significant renovation and conservation.
Attendees may put on a hard hat and lend a hand in a full-day Habitat for Humanity Build. SSCL Volunteers will build houses in partnership with the community, volunteers and homeowner families, whereby families are empowered to transform their own lives. With the help and support of volunteers, Habitat for Humanity is working to eliminate poverty housing in the New Orleans area while serving as a catalyst to make decent shelter a matter of action.
The "Big Hearts in the Big Easy" events will support the ongoing needs of the New Orleans community and be a preview to the work accomplished by Keynote Speaker, Lt. General Russel L. Honore, Ret., Commander of Joint Task Force Katrina.
The SSCL Seminar is taking part in The Ritz-Carlton's "Meaningful Meetings" program with 10% of all room proceeds to be donated to Habitat for Humanity and other local charities.
