home builders association toy driveIt is definitely the season to give to others, and doesn’t it feel good?  At the recent Southwest Suburban Home Builders Association’s holiday party both SSHBA and Sales & Marketing Council members collected new unwrapped toys for less fortunate children.

Lots of toys were collected and among them were some of the season’s most popular including Bop-It, Barbie, racing cars, Candy Land, an assortment of other board games, and of course an ever popular and timeless lava lamp. SMC members will deliver the toys making sure that the recipients have a very merry holiday.

Chicago home builders and others in the industry had a great time networking at Rockwelz Bar Meets Grill in Orland Park, IL.  If you missed out on this event, never fear as 2012 is almost here and we have some fantastic events planned.
