Open Houses with a Charity Twist!

Shea Homes Charlotte Charity Donations

What’s better than a Catered Open House? A Catered Open House that Benefits Charity!

Shea Homes of Charlotte’s two Rowan County neighborhoods, Miller’s Grove and Castlebrooke Farms, hosted open houses last Saturday. Everyone was invited to tour the models and move-in ready homes in both neighborhoods while they enjoyed catered food.

While we were happy to feed our guests, we asked them to “pay it forward”. We encouraged anyone who wanted to join to bring sustainable food pantry items to donate to Rowan Helping Ministries. The charity group fights local hunger and will serve over 95,000 meals alone this year. In return, each person that brought an item to donate at our event was entered into a drawing for a chance to win two Charlotte Hornets tickets.

Shea Homes of Charlotte was thrilled with the results, we received an entire trunkload of food! (pictured above)  Melissa Mullinix, the Builder Representative in both Castlebrooke Farms and Miller’s Grove,  commented: “I was very impressed with the outpouring of donations to help feed local families in need. We love being part of Rowan County and were very happy to help raise awareness for this charity, while also getting the word out about our available homes.” Here at Shea Homes of Charlotte we can’t resist getting involved in charity and we were happy to blend an open house with a great cause!
