Record-breaking Sum Raised for Three Local Charities

Published on December 22, 2021

The Aubuchon Team of Companies celebrated the return of a major fundraising event – and saw it raise a record-breaking sum.

Helping Hands for the Holidays, taking place for the first time in person since 2019, collected a total of $51,000 to fund three local charities.

The Aubuchon Team of Companies presented checks totaling $17,000 each to Ronald McDonald House Southwest Florida, Make-a-Wish Southern Florida, and Lee BIA Builders’ Care.

“Having expanded our Ronald McDonald House from six to twelve bedrooms this past year, proceeds from Helping Hands for the Holidays is very much appreciated,” said Laura Ragain, Executive Director.  “As we celebrate 25 years of impact to children and families in Southwest Florida, we are so grateful to The Aubuchon Team and the community support that is generated as a result of Helping Hands!”

More than 300 guests attended the event at the Aubuchon Team of Companies corporate offices located in Cape Coral.

They enjoyed food and drink donated by 14 local restaurants, a room dedicated to desserts, a holiday-themed photo booth, holiday music, and photos with Santa and Mrs. Claus.

Gary Aubuchon, President of The Aubuchon Team of Companies, expressed how thrilled everyone was with the outcome, “We could not have done this without the support of our team and our community!  We sincerely appreciate everyone’s generosity and look forward to continuing this tradition of giving at our 2022 Helping Hands for the Holidays on November 21!”
