Encore by David Weekley Homes initially set a fundraising goal of $5,000 to donate toward pediatric cancer research however, as of April 24, the builder has raised $16,326 for St. Baldrick’s Foundation.

The head-shaving event saw three Encore Homeowners and four David Weekley Homes team members going under the clippers.
“We had so much fun with the head-shaving event and resident appreciation activities leading up to it,” said Mike Foster, division president with David Weekley Homes in Tampa. “The Encore Oasis staff, residents and team members came together to support the most promising research to find cures for childhood cancers and give survivors long and healthy lives.”
The month-long events were an initiative of the company’s CARE program, which is a charitable and volunteer program that joins team members, homeowners, homebuyers and community partners with nonprofits 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 David Weekley Family Foundation donating more than $100 million to a variety of organizations through the U.S. and abroad over the past 20 years.
