HousingWire Named Ellie Mae Community Pro-Am Presenting Sponsor


Charitable Proceeds from Pro-Am will Benefit MBA Opens Doors Foundation

HAYWARD, Calif. – The Ellie Mae Classic announced today that HousingWire, the most influential source of news and information for the U.S. mortgage and housing markets, will be the Presenting Sponsor of the Ellie Mae Community Pro-Am during the Ellie Mae Classic at TPC Stonebrae in Hayward, California. The Ellie Mae Community Pro-Am Presented by HousingWire takes place on Monday, August 6, 2018. Charitable proceeds from the Pro-Am will benefit the MBA Opens Doors Foundation

 “We are proud to be named the Presenting Sponsor of the Ellie Mae Community Pro-Am at the Ellie Mae Classic Tournament,” said Clayton Collins, President and CEO, HousingWire. “HousingWire is dedicated to moving the housing and mortgage markets forward and through this sponsorship, we are supporting the leaders that are driving the mortgage industry and innovating on its behalf to help people across the country achieve the American Dream of homeownership. And through this event, we’re able to give back to charity by supporting the MBA Opens Doors Foundation.”

The MBA Opens Doors Foundation, founded by the Mortgage Bankers Association in 2011, provides relief to families during a time of personal crisis. Through its Home Grant Program, the Foundation extends mortgage and rental payment assistance grants to parents and guardians caring for a critically ill or injured child, allowing them to be by a child’s side during treatment without jeopardizing their cherished homes. 

Charity plays a key role in every PGA TOUR-sanctioned event, with other Ellie Mae charities also benefiting, including the Warriors Community Foundation. The TOUR and its tournaments generated a record $180 million for charity in 2017, in turn elevating the all-time total donated to charity to $2.65 billion. 

“We are deeply grateful to have been chosen as the beneficiary of this event. With generous support from corporations and individuals across the country, we’ve been able to help more than 2,000 families across America, providing nearly $3 million in housing assistance grants to families with a critically ill or injured child receiving medical treatment,” said Deborah Dubois, President, MBA Opens Doors Foundation. “Funds raised at the Ellie Mae Community Pro-Am, presented by HousingWire, means we’ll be able to help many more families stay in their homes while their child receives care and treatment.” 

Ellie Mae Classic Tournament tickets are available on the Tickets & Parking section of the Ellie Mae Classic website.
