Posted: 0000-00-00 00:00:00

February 5th 2010 marked another successful "Building the Future with Habitat" dinner. The event committee was pleased to see that attendance to the dinner increased and $8,000 was raised to help North St. Louis County Habitat for Humanity build homes and hope.

The program consisted of a few words from NSLCHFH board president Caroline Owens and Executive Director Nathan Thompson. Then Joy Rolandson, who partnered with NSLCHFH to build in 2000, shared her amazing story with those in attendance.

Through out the night dinner goers were encouraged to bid on over 60 silent auction baskets ranging from signed Vikings memoriabilia to ice fishing rods to a beautiful chaise lounger. They also enjoyed a wonderful dinner of maple glazed pork with sweet potatoes.

Much thanks to all of those who attended, donated silent auction items, and to those who worked to make this year's dinner the most successful to date!
