Bridgeland Donates Fourth Homesite to GBHA Benefit Homes Project

by Natalie Terchek



Bridgeland has donated its fourth homesite for the GHBA fundraiser, the Benefit Homes Project.

Bridgeland, an 11,400-acre community, has donated a homesite for the Greater Houston Builders Association (GHBA) fundraiser, the Benefit Homes Project. This is the fourth year a homesite has been donated in this community.

Two luxury homes are built for the Benefit Homes Project every year, and the GHBA donates materials and services to make this possible. The homes, constructed with numerous upgrades and amenities, are sold at market value. When they are sold, the majority of the proceeds benefit the Texas Children’s Cancer Center, the Alzheimer’s Association and HomeAid Houston, all of which are local Houston charities.

Bridgeland is “happy to take part” in the Benefit Homes Project

Peter Houghton, Bridgeland’s vice president of master-planned communities, is proud to help the GHBA with this project. “Each year, the Benefit Homes Project brings in a significant amount of money for these three charities, with nearly $8 million donated during its 33-year history,” he said. “We are happy to take part in such an important initiative by providing a homesite for the project. It strengthens the home’s marketability when it is in a desirable community like Bridgeland.”

Despite the recession and economic problems, the Benefit Homes Project has proven to be successful, with numerous builders, developers and vendors volunteering their time. The GHBA website says that they willingly help their community, regardless of the tough times, because “Even in economically challenged times, children still get cancer, adults are still facing Alzheimer’s and hopeless families will need help more than ever.”

The home, constructed by Village Builders, will be a two story, 3,226-square foot Williamsburg Plan with four bedrooms and three-and-a-half bath. A ground-breaking ceremony took place on March 21 at 12526 Brook Cove Drive in Bridgeland, and it is expected to be completed this summer. For more information about the Benefit Homes Project, visit www.ghba.org or call the Greater Houston Builders Association at 281-970-8970.
