The Sixth Annual Perfect Pair: Cigars & Single Malt Scotch event was held Wednesday, September 14th, 2016 at the University & Whist Club in Wilmington, Delaware. Thank you to our title sponsor Harry Miller of Regal Contractors; and Doug Hershman, Cooch and Taylor, for being our club host. The event was hosted by Hammer and Nails Club of Home Builders Association of Delaware (HBA/DE) in conjunction with the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) Build-PAC.
Each year HBA/DE holds this fundraiser to support its national Build-PAC efforts. With the upcoming 2016 Presidential Election, now is an important time to support their efforts to keep housing an important and integral piece of the national economy.
The evening began with hors d’oeuvres and samplings of fine wiskey. Everyone then moved outside to the patio to enjoy cigars sponsored by Roger Wollaston, Creative Floors Inc. Jim Tobin, NAHB Executive Vice President of Government Affairs, gave a few words about the national election and political issues, followed by Mark Grahne, BUILD-PAC Trustee, Delaware.
The night quickly changed from relaxed to lively when the live auction began with our one in only, Dave Curtis, who was our awesome auctioneer.
