Clearly the Cavs season didn’t end the way anyone wanted, but it was a successful season in the amount the organization was able to raise for charities that will have a direct impact on our community.

In just a couple of months, a deserving family will call a house on the west side, home.  That’s, in part, thanks to the Cavs.

“It’s a great family. They are working hard. They have full-time jobs and yet in spite of that full-time job they have to find hours not only to take care of their family, but then do the 250 hours of sweat equity to qualify as a Habitat family,” said Greater Cleveland Habitat for Humanity CEO John Habat.

Thanks to a long playoff season, the Cavs raised $500,000 in watch party ticket sales.

All of that will go to charities like Habitat for Humanity of Greater Cleveland.

“Their dollars are very critical to us,” Habat said.

If you added up all of the money the Cavs, through their watch parties in the past two years, have donated just to Habitat to Humanity, it would fund 15 total houses.
