Great turnout for 5th Annual Bull & Oyster Roast.

On May 3, the Maryland home building community joined together at the Home Builders Care’s 5th annual Community Builders Bull & Oyster Roast.  

More than 300 friends and 55 sponsors participated in the event, which raised close to $55,000 for HBCF’s charitable construction program. We thank you for your support!

At the fundraising event, our guests of honor, William D. “Don” Pleasants, Jr. and Claudia Forman Pleasants, with the Pleasants Companies were recognized for their lifetime contributions to the community and their support of the Home Builders Care Foundation. 

The Pleasants family businesses have long been a part of the Maryland commercial and residential development building industry. A special Montgomery County Council Proclamation and a Maryland Governor’s Citation commending Don & Claudia were both issued for the occasion. 

The Bull & Oyster Roast took place at the Ruppert Companies’ beautiful LEED-certified headquarters in Laytonsville, and featured pit-meats, an oyster bar, live jazz, good cheer as well as the MBIA’s Professional Women in Building Council’s annual Clothing Drive.
Highlights of the evening included not only the presentation of the Robert L. Mitchell Founders Award for a lifetime of distinguished community leadership to Mr. and Mrs. Pleasants, but also a memorable roast of the couple by long-time friend Roger Lebbin, President of Mid-Atlantic Builders and heartfelt toasts by Jerry Connelly, Pleasants Development LLC and Eric Newquist, Pleasants Construction.
Bestowing the honor was the award’s namesake Mr. Bob Mitchell, a past-president of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) as well as the founder of the Home Builders Care Foundation (HBCF) in the early 1980s.
