The Building Industry Association of Southern California, Inc. (BIASC) and California Housing Foundation (CHF) joined forces to host the 2017 Celebrity Waiter event on March 10th at the Turnip Rose in Newport Beach.
The Celebrity Waiter event is a zany and fun charity dinner featured local building industry “celebrities” serving and entertaining their selected guests for the evening. Highlights from the evening included Shea Homes’ Bob Yoder as President Donald Trump and Brookfield’s Adrian Foley as Austin Powers.
The event benefited education programs such as the Building Industry Technology Academy (BITA)—a comprehensive, four-year high school trades program, providing students across California the training they need to enter the building workforce after graduation.
CHF as a foundation itself invests in the future of the homebuilding industry through endowments that provide college and graduate school scholarships and fund research on key public policy issues. CHF’s research organization, CIRB, compiles and publishes statewide construction and new home statistics.
