RENO — Three local builders – Desert Wind Homes, Lennar Homes and Ryder Homes – have teamed up on a month-long effort to benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows. A monetary donation will be made each time someone visits or purchases a new home within their communities to help further the non-profit’s mission to enhance the quality of life for children in the Truckee Meadows.

As part of the “Homes with Heart” Charity Home Tour between Nov. 10 and Dec. 10, the three local home builders will donate $1 per visitor to their Sparks communities, $10 per realtor visit, $100 per reservation, and $1000 per new home sale.

Desert Wind Homes partner Allyson Rameker said, “As new parents, my husband and partner Victor and I are particularly passionate about the Boys & Girls Club efforts for children, and are excited for the opportunity to provide a little extra help for the organization in time for the holidays through our business…we could raise as much as $20,000!”

Participating communities are located in close proximity to each other in Sparks, at the following addresses: Desert Wind Homes’ Sonoma at 1288 Carema Court; Lennar Homes’ Asti and Verona at D’Andrea at 2983 Brachetto Loop; and Ryder Homes’ La Tierra at 2797 Earthstone Drive.

A check presentation ceremony at the Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows, located at 2680 E. Ninth St. in Reno, is scheduled for Dec. 12 in which any contributors and home buyers will be invited.

For more information, call or visit any of the communities’ websites: 626-5600 or;; and 626-7885 or
