Nearly 90 members and guests had fabulous, festive fun at our annual Holiday Party last night at The Highlander Hotel. ❄ Preliminary totals show the Women’s Council Silent Auction raised $8,768 for the scholarship fund! Wahoo! 🙌🏻 Our first-time heads or tails game was hilarious. Thank you to all who gave/collected donations, helped with set up, volunteered during the event and/or attended. A HUGE thank you to our amazing sponsors! 💯

Amy Pretorius, co-owner of Elevation HomeBuilders, knows you’re never too young to learn about the terrific career path of home building. She’s reading the House That She Built, the new children’s book now available through the National Association of Home Builders' BuilderBooks, to her adorable son. 😍

As a builder, Amy understands young people and women are part of the solution to overcoming the industry’s skilled labor crisis. “Women should feel empowered to pursue whatever profession they please, and one way to empower them is to show them women in the industry,” said Amy. “Women can not only be successful in industries such as construction, they can revolutionize it!” 💪

Amy originally pursued architecture at Iowa State, but later transferred to the University of Iowa where she obtained her Bachelors degree. She has since become a Certified Graduate Builder, named by the National Home Builder Association. While building homes in the Peninsula Neighborhood Amy had the opportunity to work with clients on custom homes along with flex her individual design muscle on their beautiful and unique spec homes. Since Amy began building in the Peninsula Neighborhood it quickly became one of the most popular and beautiful communities in the corridor area.
