Old Palm Golf Club recently joined forces with Dreamstar Custom Homes and its Build for the Cure program to raise funds for the South Florida affiliate of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation. Founded three years ago by local businessman and Dreamstar founder Brett Handler, Build for the Cure constructs custom homes as a fundraiser for breast cancer awareness. The Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation is the worldâs largest breast cancer awareness organization and makes a huge impact in the fight against the disease.
The funds to be donated will come from the construction of Palais de Tere, which is scheduled for completion in October 2013 in Old Palmâs Custom Estates neighborhood. The nearly 10,000-square-foot home will overlook the 16th
green of our Raymond Floyd-designed golf course and feature five bedrooms, seven full baths, one half bath, a library, covered loggia, porte cochere, and a four-and-a-half car garage.
The contractors and vendors involved in the construction of Palais de Tere will be asked to discount their services, with the difference donated to the fundraising efforts. Itâs hoped that $50,000 will be raised to benefit the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation.
âBuild for the Cure is an incredible program impacting lives throughout South Florida and nationwide,â said Connie McGinnis, Director of Sales at Old Palm. âWe are honored to team with Dreamstar and look forward to raising funds and awareness to fight breast cancer.â
