Helping to build homes ... and dreams

Dedication Ceremony

On Saturday, May 19, Raymond James associates, Habitat for Humanity partners and community leaders joined together to welcome the Umberger family "home" at their dedication ceremony. 

Allie Tucker, business unit risk manager, presented the mother, Marissa, a hammer – a symbol of the work that went into the home; Bobby Colon, vice president of Private Client Group Investment Products, presented the family the keys to their new home – thanking all of the partners who helped make the build a reality, and reminding the family that there are individuals rooting for them every step of the way.
