Please join us at Evergreen Habitat for Humanity's 16th annual Raising the Roof Benefit Breakfast the morning of Tuesday, September 17th.  This breakfast is Habitat’s largest fundraising event, helping support the mission of bringing people together to build homes, hope, and communities.


This year, we are in celebration mode as we honor the hard work and support it has taken to complete the final two homes in our 10-home McKibbin Commons subdivision, a project named after former Board President and founding volunteer, John McKibbin. This project is our largest local project to date, directly impacting the lives of 43 children and adults.

 

Get your day started with inspiration from our co-emcees Mayor Anne McEnerny-Ogle and Jim Mains while listening to a local girl’s ensemble perform two inspirational pieces related to the power of “home.” Nancy McKibbin will deliver a memorable speech regarding her late husband John’s commitment to starting Evergreen Habitat for Humanity and how his legacy of service continues to unite people through the building of McKibbin Commons. See, first-hand, the impact Habitat has on the families we serve.

 

Toward the end of our morning, we will honor two outstanding citizens who have given selflessly of their time and talents over the years. We proudly present the Ray Johnson Award to Bruce Armstrong for his commitment to the Board of Directors for 5 years and role as interim Executive Director during a time of transition. The Volunteer of the Year Award is presented to Doug Corso, volunteer since 2015 who has contributed as many as 2,000 hours to building homes with Habitat. Both awards will be presented by Board President Terry Eccles-Pettet.

 

All funds raised by our generous community will go toward building strength, stability, and self-reliance through housing. Join us to hear about our next exciting project!
