The 2022 Hard Hat & Black Tie Gala is on Saturday, April 23 at The Depot - Minneapolis! Hard Hat & Black Tie is Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity’s annual premiere gala that raises funds to create, preserve, and promote affordable homeownership and advance racial equity in housing. 

Home impacts every area of a family’s life—health, safety, education outcomes, and financial opportunity. And the impact grows with each generation. Join us to create real, positive change in our community.

Even if you missed registration for the in-person event, you can bid on auction items, donate generously, and enjoy the event from the comfort of your home!
