Huntington County Habitat for Humanity invites everyone to attend its Silver Anniversary Gala on Saturday, March 9, at 5:00 p.m., at LaFontaine Golf Club in Huntington. The theme is “Cruising into the Future,” and Jeremy Nix will be the master of ceremonies.
Local businesses supporting this event are Wells Fargo Bank, Event Sponsor, and Beacon Credit Union, Event Co-sponsor. There is an opening for one more Event Co-Sponsor. Local artist Rose Meldrum created the artwork that will be displayed on the front of the event program.
A silent auction and a live auction, with Steve Ness as auctioneer, will provide for an entertaining evening. Items available for bidding have been donated by businesses in Huntington, Fort Wayne, Indianapolis, Lafayette, and South Bend. Donations already received include a car detailing at Pace Auto, autographed Indiana University and Purdue University basketballs, a homemade dinner, plus admissions to regional museums, plays, and concerts.
The Gala will also be an opportunity to meet several Habitat homeowners and hear their stories.
