"Our builder sales and design teams love attending the MAME awards each year. The Dancing with the Stars element has made the event very entertaining, and we had a blast rooting for our designer, Brenda Bush, who performed an excellent cha-cha at this year’s gala. The event is definitely one of the highlights of our year, and we look forward to attending many more in the future."
