Habitat for Humanity MetroWest/Greater Worcester (HFH-MW/GW) announces its annual Auction and Gala, “High Heels and Hard Hats”, to be held at The Haven Country Club in Boylston on Saturday, October 15th at 6 PM. More than 200 business leaders from central Massachusetts are expected to attend.
The evening will begin with a cocktail hour and silent auction, where guests will be bidding on silent auction items and enjoying passed hors d’oeuvres. Members of Joy of Music will be providing background music. Around 7:30 PM, there will be remarks from Habitat for Humanity MetroWest/Greater Worcester Executive Director, Tim Firment, honorees, and the families receiving help through affordable housing will commence, after which the live auction will begin.
HFH will present the first annual Golden Hammer Award to Daniel P. Hassett. Mr. Hassett has been on Habitat’s Board since 2013 and has worked tirelessly on behalf of the families they serve through affordable housing. He has demonstrated the true spirit of Habitat leadership through hard work, creative ideas, and fundraising.
The corporate honoree is Dell EMC. Their company has been instrumental in supporting the affordable homes, as well as Operation Playhouse, a volunteer driven initiative that builds playhouses for Veterans.
All proceeds from High Heels and Hard Hats benefit the HFH mission to build homes, communities, and hope for local families.
