11th Annual Lake Carolina Wine & Food Festival

Categories: Events | Posted: October 21, 2013 | Comments Off on 11th Annual Lake Carolina Wine & Food Festival

On Saturday, Oct. 19, Blue Ribbon Builders had the privilege of sponsoring the 11th Annual Lake Carolina Wine & Food Festival. Hundreds gathered on the Lake Carolina Village Green for an afternoon of great entertainment.

The event consisted of wine & food sampling, chef demonstrations, live jazz music, watching football games under a tailgate tent, and a silent auction. It was a beautiful day filled with fun and flavor. However, the best taste was knowing it was all for charity!

All proceeds from the 2013 Wine & Food festival benefited the Children’s Charities of the Midlands.

According to http://www.lakecarolinawineandfood.com, “Children’s Charities of the Midlands is constituted so as to attract support from contributions, directly or indirectly, from persons or entities in the community in which it operates, and was formed specifically to promote charitable endeavors and causes and to raise funds and contributions primarily for the betterment and improvement of the health, welfare and education of children and youth in the South Carolina community.”

We are glad to have had the opportunity to contribute to such a great cause, and make a difference in the lives of local children and families.WineAndFood2013Final

Halloween is just around the corner and it’s time to put your decorating skills to the test! One of our favorite fall festivities is decorating and carving pumpkins. It’s a great way to spend time with family and friends, get creative, and enjoy the fall season. This year, we decided to join in on the fun.

Blue Ribbon Builders Supports United Way!

Categories: Events | Posted: October 4, 2013 | Comments Off on Blue Ribbon Builders Supports United Way!

Blue Ribbon Builders is a company that believes in giving back to the community.

On Oct. 3rd, Blue Ribbon Builders had the privilege of sponsoring the “Ultimate Tailgate Party”, hosted by Rogers Townsend & Thomas, PC. The event was created in an effort to bring local real estate agents in the Columbia, South Carolina area together for a great cause. Nearly 400 agents gathered together and enjoyed delicious food, drinks and awesome giveaways! All proceeds from the event went directly to United Way, which were then designated to Habitat for Humanity.

Each sponsor set up a tailgate tent with an activity to interact with agents in hopes of raising the most money for United Way, and having the bragging rights of “Best Tailgate.”

Blue Ribbon Builders gave away University of South Carolina season football tickets to the lucky agent who could guess the price of our model home at The Ponds at Lake Carolina. We set up renderings of the elevation and floor plan of our 3815 sq. ft. New Haven model, and for a donation of $10, an agent could make his or her guess based on these images and community feature sheets. That’s right, only $10 to win season tickets! (Talk about a great ROI!)

It was so much fun testing the agents’ knowledge and educating them on our product. A few agents came very close to guessing the price of our model, and the winner was only off by a $125! Amazing!

We enjoyed being able to meet so many great agents, and this event allowed us to raise over $430 dollars for United Way and Habitat for Humanity. Thank you to all who participated and made this event a success!
