In the past, the annual HBA Associates’ Charitable Auction was exclusively held for the building community, but this year it is open to the public and anyone can have a go at winning this swank, one-of-a-kind lodging for their best friend. Cardinal baseball greats Jack Clark, Todd Worrell, Steve Stopanovich and Robbie McGehee will also be on hand at the event to sign autographs, and several other items will be up for auction including private plane rides, Disney Park Hopper Passes, World Series autographed baseballs, and more. Last year’s benefit raised more than $76,000 for the Home Builder’s Charitable Foundation, which benefits housing related charities and non-profit organizations.
