Jacksonville, FL (March 18, 2015): Living out its purpose of Building Dreams, Enhancing Lives, David Weekley Homes recently held a fundraiser to benefit the family of Bob Foster, who lost his fight with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. The Foster the Love event brought in nearly 500 people and raised more than $20,000 to benefit Bob’s family, including his three young children.
After learning about Bob’s medical battle and the need to travel to a specialist in Texas, David Weekley Homes team members sprang into action to organize a fundraiser as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, Bob succumbed to cancer in February, one month before the event.
Held on March 8 at Greenleaf Village Park in Nocatee, Foster the Love provided an afternoon of fun while raising money from proceeds collected through admission fees, donations, silent auction results and a portion of sales from the 15 vendors onsite. The money will be donated to assist Bob’s family with medical expenses and to college funds for his young children.
As part of its culture, David Weekley Homes strives to make a positive impact in the lives of everyone it touches and in all the communities it builds through its purpose, Building Dreams, Enhancing Lives. This is accomplished by company team members volunteering countless hours to different organizations in their communities and by the Weekley Family Foundation donating more than $100 million to a variety of organizations through the U.S. and abroad since 1976.
