It was all things chili on Saturday October 20th at the 28th Annual Houston Apartment Foundation (HAF) Chili Fest at the Humble Civic Center. Apartment industry professionals gathered together in team-building spirit to pull out secret family recipes to make best-of-the best Texas chili and present it in lavish and creative settings. Almost 50 contestants supported HAF by purchasing double and single booths and weeks spent in creative preparation. Better World Properties LLC created a Resident Improvement Laboratory that won First Prize for Best Single Booth. Better World Chili placed as a finalist in the chili contest.
The Better World Properties team had a grand time building the Better World Laboratory where crazy-haired scientists in goggles and lab coats helped kids of all ages gown-up, conduct shock n’ awe static electricity experiments with a Van der Graaf generator, concoct Better World Blue Science Slime and marvel at the mysteries of frozen carbon dioxide. The parental paparazzi were in full force as kids witnessed the coolness factor of science.
Among the mayhem were formulas for making it a better world, creating better residents and measuring multifamily value. Helping to create a better world through HAF and develop the next generation of apartment professionals (and scientists) was a ton of fun for all while allowing over 100 Better World employees and family members to spend time together and with industry friends.
The crazed geniuses dished out over 500 servings of tasty Better World Chili that that was met with raves and accolades. The costumes, spikey colored hair and Blue Slime were an even bigger hit! A great big thanks to J&M Contracting for helping to construct the Better World Laboratory and making this happen.
The Houston Apartment Foundation supports the Houston Apartment Association’s educational programs where HAA has been empowering multifamily professionals for over fifty years with programs including CAM – Certified Apartment Manager; CAPS – Certified Apartment Portfolio Manager; NALP – National Apartment Leasing Professional; CMAT – Certified Apartment Maintenance Technician training and more.
