Holiday Party Raises Money for the Amy Lynn Pretorius Endowed Scholarship Fund

Our annual Holiday Party will be held this year on December 1, 2022, at The Graduate Hotel, 210 South Dubuque St, downtown Iowa City beginning at 6:00 PM.  As you know, financial support is extremely important to The Greater Iowa City Area Home Builders, as we rely on donations to provide Scholarships that are greatly needed.

This year, the newly nationally chartered, Professional Women in Building Council will be raising funds to create the Amy Lynn Pretorius Endowed Scholarship to engage women interested in expanding their knowledge and skills in the building industry. Our goal is $25,000 and with your help we can achieve it.

The Holiday Party attracts more attendees each year, but we depend on the added support of our friends in the business community who supply us with exciting auction items. Would you be willing to donate a gift certificate or merchandise from your business? We have also had great success in raising funds with our wine and whiskey trees.  Donating a bottle or two of either or both would be appreciated.

It is a win/win situation when area women benefit from your donation, and you receive the goodwill which comes as a result of your generosity. 

Your business will be listed as a donor on signage at the Holiday Party as well as on our website page, weekly eblasts and in our monthly newsletter, Builders News.

Our organization’s ability to continue to provide scholarships relies solely on the generous support of individual donors who believe in our mission, as well as gifts from businesses and corporations.  All donations are greatly appreciated and tax deductible. The Vocational Training Council of the Iowa City Home Builders Association is a 501(c)(3). A federal id number can be provided upon request.

Thank you for considering our request.
