Kamloops, BC – June 17, 2020 – Sponsors of the 2020 Training House/ Y Dream Home were recognized at the Canadian Home Builders’ Association Central Interior (CHBACI) private reception in Orchards Walk yesterday, June 16. Due to Covid-19, recognizing the sponsors was different this year. We’ve observed social distancing and all safety protocols.

The Training House is a 30-year-old program in partnership with Thompson Rivers University that includes the collaboration of professional builders and educators with trades students to build a home with the express purpose of providing real-life training to those working towards a rewarding career within the residential construction industry. The home once completed, was once again sold to the YMCA/YWCA as part of their annual program fundraiser to be raffled off to one lucky winner.

“This unique off-campus, real-life training opportunity would not be possible without the amazing contributions of our local sponsors and we were so happy to have had the chance to acknowledge their shared efforts and give praise where praise was due this evening” says Kelly Reid, CHBA Central Interior President. “We hope members of the public will notice the generous contributions made by our sponsors year after year and turn to them when they are in need of products and expertise for a renovation or new residential construction project”.

Presenting, Diamond and Platinum sponsors were given plaques and certificates. Gold, Silver and Copper sponsors were given certificates.
