Goal of $100,000 in donations will support families with
critically ill children
PLEASANTON, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Ellie
Mae® and The MBA Opens Doors Foundation (Opens Doors)
today announced that the Ellie Mae Community Pro-Am, sponsored by
HousingWire, will include a fundraiser aiming to raise $100,000 for the
foundation. The Ellie Mae Community Pro-Am is a part of the week-long
Ellie Mae Classic Web.com golf tournament, taking place July 29 – August
4 at TPC Stonebrae in Hayward, California.
Interested participants can sign up for a Pro-Am team, other on-course
sponsorships throughout the tournament, or simply make a donation to
Opens Doors by visiting The Ellie Mae Community Pro-Am – Opens Doors campaign
page. The Ellie Mae Classic will contribute $25,000 to Opens Doors,
and Ellie Mae will match donations up to $25,000.
Opens Doors provides rental and mortgage payment assistance to families
with critically ill children, allowing parents and guardians to be by a
child’s side during treatment, without fear of jeopardizing their home.
“We are fortunate that our mission of providing housing assistance to
families with critically ill or injured children is shared across the
mortgage industry,” said Deborah Dubois, President of the Opens Doors
Foundation. “Thanks to the Ellie Mae Classic and the gracious donations
from Ellie Mae and leaders like Opens Doors Board Member Jim Deitch, we
have the opportunity to raise the funds needed to help families across
America who otherwise would have to make the decision to stay with their
child during treatment or to go work to keep a roof over their heads.”
Ellie Mae has served as the title sponsor for the tournament stop for
the past four years, bringing together some of the world’s best golfers,
celebrities and professional athletes in other sports, including Golden
State Warriors All-Star guard, Stephen Curry.
“We are thrilled to host the Ellie Mae Community Pro-Am at the Ellie Mae
Classic for the second year,” said Jonathan Corr, President and CEO of
Ellie Mae. “This event brings together mortgage industry professionals
from across the ecosystem for a great day of golf that ultimately
benefits a fantastic cause. We look forward to reaching our goal of
$100,000 for Opens Doors.”
Opens Doors has helped nearly 3,500 families from 48 states since 2012.
Through the generosity of the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA), which
pays the operational expenses, Opens Doors is able to pass on 100% of
donations received to families in need. Potential recipients of the
grants are identified through the Foundation’s ongoing relationship with
10 children’s hospitals in Washington, D.C.; Boston; Dallas-Fort Worth;
Houston; Denver; Northern and Southern California; Akron, Ohio; and
Indianapolis. For more information about how to donate to Opens Doors or
