President and CEO Joe Ellis to co-host eighth annual CEO Build with Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver


DENVER — The Denver Broncos will co-host Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver's eighth annual CEO Build on Tuesday, Oct. 5 at Aria Homes by Habitat.

Broncos President and CEO Joe Ellis and Habitat Denver's CEO Heather Lafferty will co-host 50 of metro Denver's C-level executives for an exclusive community building event. The build day provides business leaders with a unique opportunity to work outside the office and help give back to the Denver community.

Throughout the volunteer day, C-level executives from diverse industries including health care, finance and oil and gas will swap their business suits for sturdy boots and get hands-on building affordable homes for local families.

"I'm proud to join Habitat's CEO, Heather Lafferty, as co-host of our largest CEO Build event to date," Ellis said. "Each year, this is one of our favorite — and most fulfilling — community projects as an organization. During a time when stable and affordable housing has never been more important, we're grateful for our local executives and leaders who are making a difference for hardworking families in our community."

Aria Homes by Habitat includes the construction of 28 new, energy-efficient homes in Aria Denver, a multi-generational, mixed-income community just north of downtown. These two-, three- and four-bedroom homes are being built in partnership with local individuals and families who will purchase them with affordable mortgages. The homes are currently in various phases of construction, and the first homebuyers are scheduled to move in later this year.
