Building the Future with Habitat, our second annual fund-raising dinner and silent auction, took place on February 8, 2008 at the Mountain Iron Community Center. Through the dedicated work of committee members Jim and Rhonda Balfour, Marion Gianlorenzi, John and Peggy Oberstar and Sara Thompson an evening of excellent food, great entertainment and wonderful program was enjoyed by 100 people. The event raised $5,500 to be used in building safe, decent and affordable homes in North St. Louis County this year. A wonderful meal was prepared by chefs Keith Haasl and Dennis Purkat with a touch of class added by music from the Eveleth Gilbert High School string ensemble directed by Sheila Wilcox. Highlights included a key note speech from Jan Plimpton, Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity of Minnesota and a special perspective on Habitat’s impact on children given by Charlotte Sipola who grew up in a Habitat home in the Twin Cities. Please pencil us in on your 2009 calendar for this event on Feb 6th! If you would like to volunteer on this committee please give us a call at 218-749-8910.

A special thanks
to the individuals and businesses who contributed to help build the future with Habitat through this event!
