Habitat for Humanity of Oakland County held its Third Annual 2015 Fall Extravaganza on November 19, 2015 at the Townsend Hotel in Birmingham and raised a record $128,000 to provide safe and affordable housing for low-income families in Oakland County.
During this event, 287 people were in attendance, up from 214 attendees the prior year. Habitat for Humanity hosted a live auction, food and entertainment and provided free valet parking, courtesy of sponsorship from MainStreet Design Build.
Money raised from the event will go toward Habitat’s Critical Home Repair Program, which provides critical home repairs to homeowners in need, assisting 16 families this year alone. It also supports the Habitat University, which is designed to educate and equip future homeowners with the skills and tools to improve their financial health to become mortgage ready within 6-12 months.
“This is the third year we have sponsored this event and every year Habitat not only accomplishes its fundraising goals but seems to increase participation, said Steve Ramaekers, President and CEO of MainStreet Design Build and Habitat for Humanity of Oakland County Board Member. “This is a fabulous organization doing wonderful things for the community. Christine and I feel honored to be a part of it.”
