 Wow – this year’s Hard Hat & Black Tie Gala was a huge success!

We are incredibly grateful to all those who came to Hard Hat & Black Tie Gala this past Saturday, May 4. Almost 1,000 people arrived in their construction couture at the Hilton-Minneapolis and thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, donors, and guests we shattered our goals and previous records, raising over $1,100,000! This partnership builds stable homes, strong communities, and more homeownership opportunities for local families.

Thank you to Naja and her family for sharing their Habitat story with us. The powerful message of the importance of home and its generational impact resonated with us all.

With all the generous hearts that filled the ballroom, together we raised a record-breaking amount! This means that children, families, and members of our community have a chance to build a better future in an affordable home. THANK YOU!

Other fun things throughout the evening:

· Our photo booth was a big hit with many props available – check out our photo booth pictures and pictures of the event!


· Shout out to the St. Catherine’s University design students for providing six AMAZING designs. The winning design (pictured center) is called "Her Armor" and was made by Elizabeth B. and Abigail F. Congrats!
