Home Builders give to children's center
Members of the Home Builders Association of Maryland have donated $1,000 to the Johns Hopkins Children's Oncology Center last week from funds raised during a golf and tennis outing sponsored by the members.
RTC Spanning three golf courses, the annual outing was the largest sporting event sponsored by the association.
This year marked the first year that proceeds from the outing were raised for charity.
The Home Builders Association of Maryland is a not-for-profit organization that provides governmental relations and educational opportunities. The organization generally functions as the housing industry's advocate in the state.
