Foundation Hero: Divine 9

d9-group-photoThe Divine 9, a group of companies banded together to pool marketing dollars, has been supporting the Home Builders Foundation for many years. Individual companies within the Divine 9 have donated or heavily discounted to countless projects. Two years ago, the Divine 9 noticed a key component missing from the HBF Trap Shoot: a hot, hearty breakfast. The group stepped up and has dedicated themselves to providing a delicious start to the day. Home Builders Foundation would like to recognize the Divine 9 as a Foundation Hero – thank you Divine 9 for all that you do!

Name: The Divine 9

Companies: Lewis Audio Visual, Lakeside Lumber, Central Air, NW Natural, Gary’s Vacuflo, Contract Furnishings Mart, Lisac’s Fireplaces, DT Glass, Miller Paint, and Eagle Home Mortgage

How did the group get started? The “nine” was formed as a “targeted marketing group.” Curt and Andrew were the first two, and then grew to six, then eight, and now the “nine” is actually ten.

How did you get involved in the HBF? What keeps you involved? A long time “Niner” Luke Morley presented the opportunity to the group – his enthusiasm is very contagious.

What is a fun fact about you that not everyone knows? We all pretty much like each other.

What is your favorite thing to do as a group? Whatever the D9 does is fun – whether it’s a monthly lunch meeting or hosting our customers/clients to a day of football – it’s going to be fun!
