Have you heard about Twin Cities Habitat's Multiplying the Impact five-year fundraising campaign? It's all about folks like you in the Twin Cities coming together to more than double the Habitat homeownership opportunities—from about 50 to over 100 each year.
What will it take? All of us coming together, digging deep, and giving what we can. And there's so many ways you can get involved and make a difference. Attending a Habitat event is a great way to build stable, affordable homes for local families. (And, if I do say so myself, attending an event is perhaps the most fun way way to give back.)
Here's a look at some of the awesome Habitat events you can attend throughout the year.
Hard Hat & Black Tie Gala
Celebrating its 20th year on May 4, 2019, the Hard Hat & Black Tie Gala is the party that's a little less formal and a lot more fun! The "construction couture" dress code means you can still wear that black dress—but maybe throw in some work boots or a hard hat.
Hard Hat & Black Tie is a night you won't forget, complete with a scrumptious dinner with an inspiring program, fabulous silent and live auctions, the best photo booth around, party games, a live band, and more. But most importantly, it's a way you can make a serious impact for local families. This year, the goal is to raise $1 million, and you can be part of it.
The Hard Hat & Black Tie Gala is of the most beloved events in the Twin Cities each spring. Get some tickets and find out why.
Raise the Roof Golf Tournament
Picture this: a gorgeous August day at Minneapolis Golf Club—rolling green hills, pristine fairways, the whole nine yards. You spend the day golfing with a foursome of friends or colleagues, enjoy a delicious lunch and dinner, win a prize in the silent auction, and help raise some serious money for Twin Cities Habitat. Doesn't it sound perfect?
That's our Raise the Roof Golf Tournament in a nutshell. Whether you're an avid golfer or are just after a day of fun, you're welcome at Raise the Roof. Now's the perfect time to start making your plans to attend the 2019 Raise the Roof Golf Tournament on Monday, August 5, 2019.
Women of Habitat Hope Builders Fundraising Luncheon
Each fall, more than 400 guests gather for the annual Women of Habitat Hope Builders Fundraising Luncheon. At the luncheon, you'll hear from powerful women about the importance of stable, affordable housing. You'll be able to network with a like-minded community. And you'll contribute to our second-largest fundraising event of the year. (Plus: the lunch is excellent.)
Save the date for this year's luncheon on Tuesday, September 24, 2019 at the Hilton Minneapolis.
Habitat Home Dedications
Here are a few of the things you might experience at a Habitat home dedication: Children running around, excitedly showing off their new rooms. Volunteers reminiscing about how they raised the walls on the home. The sweet taste of sheet cake. And homeowners welcoming everyone—family members, friends, neighbors, Habitat supporters —into their home to celebrate with them. It's not uncommon for a few happy tears to be shed.
Habitat home dedications are joyous, memorable events, and you're invited! Check out upcoming home dedications.
Habitat events let you invest in stable families and strong neighborhoods in a powerful way. And, they let you have a lot of fun in the process. Please consider joining the Multiplying the Impact campaign and attend an event this year!
