Habitat for Humanity Winona-Fillmore Counties will be hosting its annual Hard Hats to Black Tie dinner & fundraising event, which includes a wonderful evening of friendship, dining and bidding on one-of-a-kind auction items. The dinner will be held on Friday, May 18th at Visions Event Center at Signatures Restaurant. All members of the community are welcome to attend. Attire can be anything from construction garb to black tie sophistication.
The evening’s events will begin at 6:00 pm. with a social hour and silent auction. Dinner will be served at 6:45 pm. A brief program and live auction will be held following dinner.
Executive director Nancy Iglesias said, “This is going to be a wonderful evening for old and new friends of Habitat to gather together and enjoy a great meal and raise additional funds for Habitat. Each auction donation is unique and we appreciate each and every item donated to Habitat. We could not have the opportunity to change lives if it were not all of the benefactors, donors, volunteers, board members and the support of our community.”
Premier auction items for the evening include Minnesota Viking tickets, Minnesota Twins tickets, cocktail cruise for 10 on the Mississippi, WSU sky box and 12 tickets to a football game, plus a variety of hand crafted items, gift certificates and gift baskets.
Community members are encouraged to gather their friends, club members, church groups, and/or businesses associates and make a group reservation. Tickets are $35 per person. Tickets must be reserved by May 11th.
Special thanks to Winona National Bank and Merchants Bank for sponsoring the event. All proceeds will go towards our goal of building affordable homes with families in need in 2012.
