The essential work of non-profits and charities in our community is important to both organizations hosting the show. Every year, the Home Builders Association of the U.P. (HBA) and the Marquette Builders Exchange (MBE), co-hosts of the U.P. Builders Show, each choose one charity/non-profit organization to be a part the show. Their booth fees are covered by the sponsoring organization, and they are permitted to have a raffle or fund-raiser. The HBA and MBE also donate $500 to their charity/non-profit organization.

If your charity/non-profit organization would like to be considered, please contact: Jennifer Lammi, Executive Director, Marquette Builders Exchange, 906-225-1216, or Sarah Schultz, Executive Officer, Home Builders Association of the U.P., 906-228-2312,
