During this season of giving we ask that you consider making a donation to support our work here at Habitat for Humanity of Greater New Haven. In this year’s annual appeal we are highlighting the Tchagouni-Gafo family and sharing with you some of the fantastic things that happened in 2019 with the help of our volunteers and donors. Thank you in advance for your donation and we wish you a very happy holiday season.
Community build Sleeping Giant Build is holding a fundraising event at Mezza Bar and Grill in Orange on November 16 from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. A portion of the dinner bill from the evening will help to fund Sleeping Giant Build’s 11th home, 631 Ferry Street in New Haven. Grab some friends and enjoy a night out for a great cause, including drawings for prizes throughout the evening! Vegan and gluten-free menu items are available.
Join community build Raise the Roof for an evening of dinner and dance ! Cheer on a sparkling group of stars—community leaders passionate about making the world a better place—as they dance and compete with a special fundraising twist.
The dance couples are learning choreographed ballroom routines during ten private lessons provided by Arthur Murray of Guilford, Raise the Roof’s Event Partner. The dancing stars will perform on Friday, November 15 at our 2019 Gala of Stars at The WoodWinds of Branford. The stars are competing for “votes” (dollars = votes) and their dancing is raising funds to help families build homes. Online voting has begun and will stay open through the November 15 gala performances. Donate here to vote and support the stars.
Celebrity judges will present awards for the best performances on the night of the event. Gala guests will enjoy drinks, hors d’oeuvres, a three-course plated dinner, the performances, and then the dance floor will open for you to strut your own stuff to some great music—old and new! The purchase of tickets goes toward helping families build homes. Get your tickets early as last year’s event sold out!
