This past week, on a gorgeous Monday afternoon, 128 golfers joined Twin Cities Habitat for the annual Raise the Roof Golf Tournament fundraiser.

Now in its 23rd year, Raise the Roof continues to be a fun way to spend the day outside at the beautiful Minneapolis Golf Club while raising money for Twin Cities Habitat. This year we raised a record breaking amount! Between sponsorship, silent and live auction, and fund-a-need, the event raised over $158,000 for safe and affordable housing in the Twin Cities.

“When you show up at this event for your first time or your 15th time, you prove that you’re dedicated to building good homes and strong communities,” said Cathy Lawrence, Vice President of Resource Development and Community Engagement. “Your time and generosity truly do make a huge impact-because a stable home is a foundation where families build brighter futures.”
