PortItalia Donates to Sacred Leaf Benefit

On Friday August 21st and Saturday August 22nd, PortItalia Construction participated in a benefit to help The George Mark Children's House in San Leandro. This event was called The Sacred Leaf Benefit and was held in downtown San Jose. This was a two-night event in which we participated both nights. PortItalia Construction donated 4 hours of free labor for the raffle drawing on both nights. There were two winners of this prize, both of which have already contacted us to receive their free hours of labor. Our goal was to offer something that could truly help someone in need around their home, perhaps finishing a "honey-do" list for someone. We were trying to give back to the community instead of trying to reap the rewards of the next large remodeling endeavor. We were happy to learn that both winners fall within the category we were trying to target and projects will begin relatively soon. We want to sincerely thank Mary Zuchowski for allowing us to be a part of this special event and we look forward to the opportunity to do it again.

We at PortItalia hope that you and your families are enjoying the many benefits of summer. It has been a very productive one for us and has kept us from being able to update our blog as much as we would like. We are in the process of updating many pages within our website and photo galleries. In the meantime, thank you so much for checking back with us and viewing our progress. Sadly, many of our smaller projects this summer went undocumented, however we hope to share more updates on a more consistent basis once our schedules allow.

Enjoy the last month of summer, and get ready to prepare for Fall. That is precisely what the Morello Family is doing while preparing for a new Baby Girl. If we thought the summer was busy, the Fall is about to become crazy!
