TBA President Bill Halprin and Homearama Charity House Builder Scott Crumley at St. Mary's Home anniversary celebration.

Tidewater Builders Association’s charitable work was honored at two back-to-back Charity events this week. That’s because this year, Homearama builders are constructing not one – but two – homes to benefit local children’s causes.

On Tuesday evening, builder Eric Sasser of Sasser Construction was recognized for building a Charity House to benefit Boys & Girls Clubs of Southeast Virginia in the Spring Homearama at Founders Pointe. The evening was in celebration of the “Evening with the Stars” 2010 Youth of the Year Awards Dinner.

On Wednesday evening, at a 65-year anniversary celebration for St. Mary’s Home for Disabled Children, TBA President Bill Halprin officially announced that St. Mary’s will be the recipient of proceeds from the Fall Homearama Charity House in Norfolk’s East Beach community.

Also on hand was Scott Crumley from The Crumley Group, who has volunteered to build the Fall Homearama Charity House. TBA old-timers will remember that Scott’s mother, Judy, chaired TBA’s Young Designer Scholarship Competition for many years. The company will need contributions of materials and services to the Homearama home to increase the proceeds available to the charity.

The mission of St. Mary’s Home for Disabled Children is “to provide quality, specialized care within a homelike environment for special children with severe disabilities, so each child can achieve to his or her fullest potential.
