Lee BIA Builders Care, the nonprofit arm of the Lee Building Industry Association (BIA), will host its fifth annual building product garage sale to raise funds to help local homeowners in need. The sale will take place Jan. 16 from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. at Cape Coral Plumbing, located at 5812 Enterprise Parkway in the Billy Creek Commerce Center off Luckett Rd., just west of I-75.

Offering Southwest Florida remodelers the opportunity to commence home or office renovations at a modest price, local suppliers and building industry-related companies are providing great deals on all kinds of items including appliances, lighting, plumbing fixtures, kitchen cabinets and paint. All proceeds will benefit Builders Care and help provide emergency construction services to elderly and disabled Lee County homeowners in need.
“This is a remodeler’s dream sale,” said Christi Pritchett Sarlo, executive director of Builders Care. “This is a perfect opportunity to take advantage of great deals that will ultimately help a local neighbor in need. We have tens of thousands of dollars’ worth of materials for pennies on the dollar.”
