Last Sunday we celebrated with the raising of the pink wall at the 2014 Women Build home.
Teams came up one by one and you all did a fantastic job raising the wall, posing for photos, and giving an incredible round of applause.
Some of you may have given Erwin a little bit of a panic attack with your enthusiasm. But it’s okay, we feel that excited to!
Especially to share that with the donations you have brought in, the Guest Bartender Night from April, and the Lowe’s Women Build Week grant – we have raised over $50,000 for this house!
Along with the wall raising, we got to meet the newest Bailey – Jordyn! Yes, that’s right, Je’nnell had her babe. Isn’t she gorgeous?!
The Democrat and Chronicle had a great summary of the wall raising event in Monday’s paper. You can check it out by clicking here. Be sure to share it with friends and donors! And if you’re looking for MORE photos of the wall raising event, you can find them here at Flower City Habitat’s Facebook page. Share, share, share!
$50,000 means that we only have 1/3 left to go! So if you’re still working on your $200 now’s the time to get the word out! And if you’ve passed your $200 goal, keep the good work coming! Every little bit helps, and all donations that we get beyond the $75,000 we need this year will help us get a jump-start on next year’s house.
Speaking of FUNdraising events, we have some coming up.
