SARATOGA SPRINGS, NY – On Tuesday, the Saratoga Builders Association presented proceeds totaling $75,000 from the 2017 Saratoga Showcase of Homes to Rebuilding Together Saratoga County and Habitat for Humanity of Northern Saratoga, Warren and Washington Counties.

The funds raised were the highest amount since 2011. The Saratoga Builders Association has now contributed over $1.1 million dollars to local charities from its new home tour event, which has been organized for 22 years.

The 2017 Saratoga Showcase of Homes edition featured 14 award-winning builders, presenting 18 homes. This year’s tour had nearly 4,000 visitors over three weekends.

In what has become an autumn tradition, the Saratoga Builders Association is dedicated to this long-running show being an integral part of the season.

The 2017 Showcase of Homes “People’s Choice” award winners were also announced: McPadden Builders in the Classic Home category; Marini Homes in the Executive Home category; and Bella Home Builders (Cedar Bluff) for the Luxury Home category.
