Habitat for Humanity in Whatcom County’s 2013 Raise the Roof Auction will be held at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 16, at the Hotel Bellwether in Bellingham.
The auction is the primary fundraising event for the local low-income housing ministry. This year, instead of a sit-down banquet, the auction will be a casual, after-work event with cocktails, appetizers and desserts.
Silent and live auctions will offer a wide variety of local and regional items, services, dining and lodging.
Some highlights include: A weekend Porsche rental from Roger Jobs Motors, a week’s stay in Whistler, British Columbia, private party space for 40 at Fireside Martini & Wine Bar and more. The event will also include a raffle, prizes and competitions.
Tickets are $50 per person, and can be purchased at Habitat for Humanity in Whatcom County’s website: www.hfhwhatcom.org, by calling Habitat’s office at 360-715-9170 or by visiting the Habitat for Humanity Store at 1385 Admiral Place in Ferndale.
