Habitat for Humanity of Greater Palm Beach County Hosts Kickoff Party for CEO Build 2023

Participants can learn ways to get involved as a CEO Builder or Corporate Sponsor.

To raise awareness about the importance of affordable housing, the CEO Build kickoff event will be held from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 23 at Aloft Delray Beach, 202 SE 5th Ave. Business leaders can meet the CEO Build 2023 Co-Chairs and Habitat Partner Families. To register, visit here.

On September 21 and 22, a group of C-Suite executives and business leaders in South Florida will come together to address the issue of affordable housing in the community during the CEO Build event in Palm Beach County. This event will offer a unique opportunity for participants to ditch their business suits and don construction boots as they work alongside Habitat Partner Families to build much-needed housing. Beyond the hands-on volunteerism and community impact, this event provides high-level networking and brand visibility for all involved. The annual event brings together top CEOs and senior-level business leaders who take a break from their busy schedules to help build a home for a local family. The primary goal of this event is to build stronger and safer communities while assisting families in need of decent and affordable housing. 

Business leaders can choose a half-day shift during this two-day event and work alongside Habitat families to learn valuable construction skills, build new friendships, and make meaningful business connections. CEOs have the option to choose a morning or afternoon shift on Thursday, Sept. 21, or participate in the Elite Leadership Circle, which is reserved for donors who have contributed $10,000 or more on Friday morning, Sept. 22. Participants are encouraged to commit to a fundraising goal and build individually to make a meaningful contribution to the cause.

BIOGRAPHY

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
