As a company who helps people create homes, our mission has always been to provide our community with a safe and happy place to live. And it’s for this reason that Covenant House Florida became our first-ever charitable partner over two decades ago.
The Covenant House’s purpose is to provide children in need with safe shelter, a cause that was incredibly special to our founder Kevin Koenig. This led to the launch of the annual Covenant House Cup, a golfing fundraiser dedicated to raising funds for the organization.
Twenty-four years later, and it’s still going strong. And while the event has changed and grown over the years, including adding a fishing tournament, the goal has always remained the same—and that is to support the critical mission of providing hope and answers to youth in need.
To date, we’re grateful to say that we have raised over one million dollars since that very first Covenant House Cup. It all goes back to the community we are lucky enough to call home, and we’re thankful and inspired by everyone who joins the cause each year.
