You are invited to the 18th Annual
Habitat for Humanity Cocktail Party
Our special guest speaker,
longtime Habitat supporter, Huey Lewis!
Our 18th annual cocktail party fundraiser "Buckles and Boots" will be on Friday, March 6 from 6:30 p.m. until 10 p.m. at the Islander Resort Conference Center, lslamorada, mile marker 82. All proceeds from the event remain in the Upper Keys and are used for construction of homes for qualifying families.
We hope you can join us!
This year, the special guest speaker will be singer/actor Huey Lewis. A long time supporter of Habitat, he hopes Habitat will exceed previous years revenues for the fundraiser.
"Right now, we are building 20 affordable homes in the Upper Keys," according to Jack Niedbalski, executive director of the Habitat for Humanity affiliate. "Our building costs are lower due to generous donations from the community, allowing us to sell to qualified, low-to moderate income families using an interest-free loan. But we do have costs and need continued community support to provide housing to those in need." Habitat for Humanity of the Upper Keys has set a goal to "Build 50" homes. Since its inception, it has built 33. Join HFHUK at the "Buckles and Boots" cocktail party to help reach the goal to "Build 50" and provide additional families the opportunity to buy an affordable home in the Upper Keys.
The evening includes:
Scrumptious hors d'oeuvres prepared by Islander Chef Andy at food stations, open bar featuring premium liquors and wine, live music, live and silent auctions, featuring over $100,000 in concert tickets, stays at luxurious vacation homes, art, shopping sprees, boating and fishing items, and much more, DJ dancing and dessert under the stars on the patio overlooking the ocean.
"Buckles and Boots" means a casual flair for the evening. Tickets for the cocktail party are $250 per couple or $150 per person. There are also a limited amount of VIP tickets for $250 per person. VIP tickets also provide a pre-cocktail party reception at 5:30pm featuring meet and greet with Huey Lewis as well as premier wine tasting paired with delicious hors d'oeuvres.
