Habitat For Humanity Fundraiser

$565 of $500 goal

Raised by 14 people in 45 months
Habitat for Humanity of Jefferson County is a non-for-profit organization founded in 1978 to allow lower income families the opportunity of homeownership. In exchange for "sweat equity" from sponsor families along with Habitat volunteers; a home will be built, renovated, and repaired for them to live. A zero interest mortgage is provided to new homeowner allowing affordable monthly payments. Over 115+ families have been helped in Jefferson county alone and money needs to be continually raised to keep it going!

Event will take place on February, 21, 2015 as communities 7th annual Mr. Habitat competition. Purpose is too provide a unique fun way to spread awareness of their mission, as well as having an action packed day of competition. As a new member to the Beaumont area, I am extremely excited to participate this year along with seven other dedicated professionals. The afternoon will showcase 5 activities for each participant;

1.Opening Cat Walk Talent Competition
2. Building Competition Auction
3. People’s Choice: The Money
4. Interview Round
5. Crowning of Mr. Habitat 2015!

I believe very strongly in this and ask that all of my family, friends, and co-workers take a second to help support a wonderful cause & help me win! It is especially meaningful to me as a mortgage lender to be a part of making a hard working families dream a reality when they have been so limited in the past. All of your donations big or small will be going directly into paying for materials, professional services, fees, and associated costs that are a part of the building process. My goal is to raise a substantial amount of funds to expand this mission to greater lengths and sincerely appreciate your donation’s. Thanks for the help everyone. Go Habitat!!

Mr. Habitat 2015 is only 2 days away. Event will be @ 6:30 this Saturday. I will be playing my acoustic guitar for talent, auctioning off artistic piece for my build, and continue raising money for Habitat. I am going to dedicate this event to my grandfather Toni Marino. On Tuesday, he was diagnosed with a rare lung cancer called Bronchioloalveolar Carcinoma. He has been sick for 3 years now, and it was just discovered this was the cause. Unfortunately, the cancer has blackened his lungs beyond repair and he may only have a couple months too live. Please keep him in your prayers. I will keep site open until Saturday morning and would appreciate any last minute donations to support the cause. Thank you to everyone who has helped me prepare for this and very excited to represent such a wonderful cause. Between gofundme and direct donations, approx. $2,000 was raised. Good job!!
