Morris Habitat for Humanity’s Seventh-Annual Hearts & Hammers Gala
Held at the Park Avenue Club, 184 Park Avenue, Florham Park, the Morris Habitat for Humanity’s Seventh-Annual Hearts & Hammers Gala on February 18 offers an elegant and exciting evening of dining, dancing to the music of local group Tropical Storm, a wine pull and silent auction, all to benefit the organization’s mission to help working families achieve the American dream of home ownership. Homeowner families and volunteers will soon be breaking ground for ten new homes to be constructed in 2012, and Morris Habitat for Humanity hopes to raise $150,000 to accomplish that goal. The evening begins with a cocktail reception, silent-auction preview and wine pull at 6 p.m., followed by dinner at 7. Individual tickets are $250 per person.
Morris Habitat for Humanity (MHfH) is a nonprofit housing ministry dedicated to providing decent, affordable housing for low-income families in Morris County. Through volunteer labor and donations of money and materials, MHfH builds and rehabilitates houses in partnership with families in need; it has served 107 families with its home-building and home-repair projects since 1985. In addition, proceeds from its ReStore, which opened in May 2007, have built five homes and diverted more than 1,000 tons (of what would have been discarded materials) from landfills.
