A Builders' Ball: Celebrating 30 Years,

  • About the event

    This fundraising gala, A Builders' Ball--Celebrating 30 Years of Service, supports Calhoun Cleburne Habitat for Humanity's efforts to build more safe, decent, and affordable homes for families in need. We have been serving our community for nearly thirty years and cannot think of a better way to celebrate that achievement than to raise funds to build more.

    This Ball is open to the public and will feature food, dancing, adult beverages, and an auction where we will also launch our $100,000 annual campaign. Proceeds from this event will go towards building homes for more deserving low-income families.

    Why should you sponsor?

    Our mission of "Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities, and hope”, is what guides our actions, however, the past two years have proven that at a moment’s notice, our purpose can be deferred. We faced what seemed to be insurmountable setbacks during COVID—many homeowners were unable to pay their mortgages, donations slowed, our doors were closed for months, and the price of building materials rose over thirty percent. Homes that would cost $70,000 to build prior to COVID, rose to over $100,000 and with limited funding and the concern about passing that expense to our low-income clients, homebuilding ceased. For almost 2 years, we were stagnant, but that stagnancy is what has motivated us to search for the knowledge that we lacked in obtaining funding by hosting a fundraising event. We navigated that time of uncertainty with tenacity and as normalcy slowly returns, we believe that finding sponsors that share our vision of living in a world where everyone has a decent place to live will unlock a greater potential to be of service to our community and prepare the affiliate for a promising future.

    Calhoun Cleburne Habitat for Humanity (CCHFH) is a non-proselytizing housing organization that serves in both Calhoun and Cleburne counties. Since our inception in 1993, we have built over 157 homes, renovated 62 others, completed 50 Brush with Kindness projects, and roof replacements for veterans and that number is growing every year. The populace we serve consists of low- to- middle income families, veterans, and elderly that are affected by poor living conditions, many of whom live in high crime areas or cannot afford the astronomical costs of rent in the safer areas. At current, we serve almost 90 homeowners by providing support through quality and affordable homes and homeowner's workshops. Our program enables these underserved groups to live in a community with other homeowners in the program to create a safe oasis.

    With so many of our resources devoted to programs and projects, we intend to use sponsorship to subsidize the cost of this fundraising gala to raise more funds for homebuilding.
