Ellie Mae Golf Event Raises $40K-Plus for MBA Opens Doors Foundation

August 27, 2018
MBA’s Opens Doors Foundation has announced it raised $685,175 during the Mortgage Bankers Association’s 2018 Annual Convention and Expo
The Ellie Mae Community Pro-Am, held during the Ellie Mae Classic, produced a $40,000 windfall for its beneficiary, The MBA Opens Doors Foundation. The 2018 Ellie Mae Classic at TPC Stonebrae Pro-Am brought together sponsors from across the mortgage banking industry, including: Ellie Mae, Teraverde Financial, PrimeLending and Pulte Mortgage.
 
“We are fortunate that our mission of providing housing assistance to families with critically-ill or injured children is shared by MBA members with a deep sense of community and compassion,” said Opens Doors Foundation President Deborah Dubois. “Were it not for the support of these incredible organizations and the leadership of Opens Doors Board Member Jim Deitch, who led the charge, many families across America would face a heartbreaking decision–stay with my child during treatment or go to work to keep a roof over our heads.”
 
The Ellie Mae Classic draws a unique array of players and fans from the real estate finance industry and benefits not just Opens Doors, but the Warriors Community Foundation as well.
 
“The mission of helping to keep families with a sick child in their homes during what is arguably one of the most devastating and confusing times in a family’s life is very personal to me,” said Jim Deitch, CEO of Teraverde Financial. “At the same time, I know I and many others in the mortgage banking industry are more fortunate than most, and so I believe very much in giving back and paying it forward to families in need.”  
 
Jonathan Corr, President and Chief Executive Officer of Ellie Mae, said, “Giving back to the communities in which we work has always been important to Ellie Mae. We were pleased to be able to do more for families with sick children this year with Opens Doors as the beneficiary of the Pro-Am. We are looking forward to next year!”
