“Nat Hodgson Roast

The SNHBA thanks and salutes all those involved in the success of the association’s “Nat Hodgson Roast” Dinner, benefiting our HomeAid Southern Nevada chapter, Thursday evening at the Orleans Hotel Conference Center.

The association raised approximately $2,800 for the HomeAid chapter.

Special thanks must go to our co-sponsor and member of 50 years, First American Title Company – thank you, Kevin Newell and Anne Law!

We also thank our outstanding panel of roasters, headed by President Wayne Laska of StoryBook Homes. The roasters, who did such a fine job, were Rocky Cochran of Pardee Homes, Janet Love of KB Home, Ron Lynn of the Nevada State Contractors Board, Ken Williams of CAMCO and Darren Wilson of Sierra Air Conditioning.

Also, we must thank our former Executive Director Nat Hodgson, who is now branch manager at our member company, USI Silver State, for being a good sport and allowing us to put him in the hot seat for the benefit of HomeAid. Thank you, Nat! And, thank you, Debbie Hodgson, for going along with some of the roasters’ jokes and gags.
