Home Builders Association of Delaware celebrated their 24th year of recognizing excellence in the home building and related industry. This year’s Regal Awards was held at the Delaware Center for Contemporary Art, in Wilmington, which lent the ceremony a unique flare. Attendees could enjoy the contemporary art exhibits while they eagerly awaited the announcement of winners.
Soon guests were called into the secured room where the gleaming crystal awards were displayed that touted winners of categories such as, Best Clubhouse Design, Community with the Best Amenity Value, Best Image Campaign, Community of the year in Kent County, Sussex County, and New Castle County.
The first award given out was for Best Clubhouse Design, which went to Benchmark Builders for their Milltown Village Clubhouse. Later, Sales and Marketing Council (SMC) member Jocelyn Succarotte discussed some important things that the SMC does, along with HBA/DE through out the years.
Home Builders Association of Delaware has been around since 1947 protecting and promoting the home building industry- so we are going to take some time to let you know what your support has helped accomplish.
- For the past 2 years the SMC has hosted low cost to free educational courses.
- In conjunction with the Associate council, HBADE has built handicap ramps for 2 people in need- one being a veteran
- For the second year in a row – we are pairing up with Habitat for Humanity for a Framing Frenzy in June to celebrate home ownership month
- Recently HBADE assisted the General Assembly to increase winter clothing donations for the Food Bank of Delaware
Through out the ceremony our wonderful sponsors were recognized starting with our Platinum Sponsors, Dry Zone and Schell Bothers. Next were our Gold sponsor, Insight Homes, Carl M. Freeman Companies, and Benchmark Builders. Then our Bronze and Silver Sponsors were recognized Middletown Kitchen and Bath, Horty & Horty, PA, OneCall Services, Inc., Leon N. Weiner & Associates, Bay to Beach Builders, New Penn Financial, McKee Builders, and Bath Kitchen & Tile.
The most popular sponsorship of the evening was the Signature Drink Sponsor, which was made possible by K. Hovnanian. Those who wanted the special Mojito drink, had to ask for the “K. Hov.”.
Finally, the ceremony ended with 2015 Community of the Year, which went to Champions Club by McKee Builders. After the final announcement of winners, guests enjoyed more mingling and celebratory cocktails to finish off a splendid event, but before they left, they stopped and picked up their copy of the Regal Book. The Regal Book is made possible by iKande Advertising, which displays the endless hours of work, beautiful color, and shows off the excellence in the building industry and all of its supporters!
