Land O’ Lakes, FL – Connerton, Pasco County’s largest master-planned, mixed-use community, received the 2018 Gold Award honor for Best Lifestyle Program for a Community during the National Association of Home Builders’ National Sales and Marketing Awards gala (known as “the Nationals”). The Nationals was hosted at the Hyatt Regency in Orlando, Florida on January 10. More than 1,000 real estate professionals from the International Builders’ Show attended the annual event.
The Nationals honors the best in the building industry for their determination, integrity, creativity and endurance. “The Nationals are the most prestigious awards of their kind, setting the benchmark for innovations in new home design, marketing and sales,” said Meredith Oliver, Chairperson of The Nationals.
During a three-day judging process, a panel of 7 industry professionals from across the country determined the winners from a field of over 1,300 entries.
“I am extremely gratified for Connerton to have received this national recognition. Our Connerton staff works hard to provide our resident adults and their children with the exciting and rewarding activities that set us apart from the rest and make our community such a special place to live,” said General Manager, Stew Gibbons.
Signature events such as “Noon” Years Eve, Eggstravaganza, Nation Celebration, Hometown Harvest, and Winter Wonderland are a sampling of the events that residents look forward to year after year. Adults enjoy weekly and monthly activities such as fitness classes, Parents Night Out, Men’s Brew & Poker Nights, Scotch and Cigar Nights, Dive-in Movies, Meet & Mingle Happy Hours, Pops on the Patio, Girls Night Out, Potluck Trivia, Doggie Dress Up Pawty, Make Your Own Pizza Nights, Wine Painting classes and so much more. In addition to utilizing the resort-style water park with big splash pool, kids can enjoy Wiggles and Giggles fitness classes, music classes, arts and crafts events, poolside snow cones and cotton candy, Social Sandbox, Kids Fearful Factor and Lil Campers Summer Camp. The hallmark event of 2017 occurred during the Parade of Homes in April, when Connerton, in partnership with Lennar and Operation FINALLY HOME, awarded a deserving Veteran and his family a mortgage-free home in the community. With more branded events, social gatherings, and lifestyle activities than anywhere, Connerton has something to offer for everyone.
