MIAMI Fla.— As a long-time supporter of homeowner advocacy, Venture Construction Group of Florida (VCGFL), VCG International (VCGI), and VCG Consulting (VCGC) sponsored the Rebuilding Together Miami-Dade Fishing Tournament on June 1. The tournament started at 5:30 a.m. with weigh-ins starting at 4 p.m. Over 20 boats participated and the event raised over $34,100. Rebuilding Together relies on volunteers and donations to be successful.

With the support of local businesses, residents, and corporate sponsors, Rebuilding Together repairs homes, revitalizes communities, and helps rebuild lives. The charity also eliminates unsafe and deplorable living conditions for low-income homeowners, particularly the elderly, veterans, and those with disabilities.

“We are truly blessed to have so many supporters in the community like Venture companies. Venture’s support and sponsorship will help provide the ability to take care of many families in need,” says Stephanie Cochran, co-chair, Rebuilding Together.
