Twin Cities Habitat’s annual Raise the Roof Golf Tournament is around the corner with new and exciting changes like our virtual auction. This year, you can bid from the comfort your home—no need to set foot on the golf course! 

Raise the Roof is celebrating its 25th year as Twin Cities Habitat’s golf fundraiser and outreach event, raising funds for the At Home Fund. We are excited to hold the fundraiser at the newly renovated Minneapolis Golf Club. Twin Cities Habitat has been working hard to adapt to the new safety protocols which you can learn more about on our Raise the Roof page.

Since Twin Cities Habitat is committed to keeping the community and our supporters safe, we have decided to take the program and auction virtual. After throwing our successful Virtual Hard Hat Gala, we would like to think we know a little something about an online auction.
