The Maryland BuildingIndustry Association (MBIA) Anne Arundel County Chapter, in partnership with the Home Builders Care Foundation (HBCF), the 501 (c) (3) non-profit charitable construction and community outreach charity affiliated with MBIA, recently held its annual summer networking event for charity.
Proceeds from the event benefitted the construction of Hospice of the Chesapeake‘s new Inpatient Care Center in Pasadena, Maryland. Hospice’s mission is to care for life throughout the journey with illness and loss. Their new center will offer fourteen beds to patients who would normally require hospitalization. Two of MBIA’s Anne Arundel Chapter Members, Michael Baldwin, President & CEO, Baldwin Homes, and Michael DeStefano, President, Sturbridge Homes are active supporters of Hospice Chesapeake.
HBCF works with community non-profits and local governments to meet the challenges of caring for our neighbors in need. Since its founding in 1984, HBCF has provided over $20 million in services and assistance and partnered with over 80 local non-profits in Maryland and the District.
Over 100 building industry members and community leaders participated in the event which was held on the rooftop of the Mariner Bay Apartments in the Annapolis Town Center. A number of MBIA members sponsored the event and donated funds were matched by HBCF to raised $15,000 for Hospice of the Chesapeake. Interim President and CEO of Hospice of the Chesapeake, Mr. Ben Marcantonio, was on hand to accept the donation.

Sponsors for the event included:  
Landtech – The Tech Group,
