The Women Build committee of Habitat for Humanity of Kosciusko County will be hosting Happy Appé Hour at 5 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 25, and lasting until 7:30 p.m. at Mad Anthony Lake City Tap House, 113 E. Center St., Warsaw.
Advance tickets are $10 and will include full access to a wine tasting courtesy of Satek Winery and an appetizer/hors d’oeurves competition from local eateries. All appetizers/hors d’oeurves will be made with either one of Mad Anthony’s brews or a vintage from Satek. A silent auction will also occur.
Appetizer/hors d’oeurves selection from local eateries and donated silent auction items are being sought. All proceeds from Happy Appé Hour will benefit Women Build, the next build for Habitat in Kosciusko County.
The Women Build committee was formed in January 2012 with the goal of fully funding and fully staffing the construction of a Habitat home with female volunteers. So far more than $37,000 has been raised toward the total goal of $70,400 and more than 120 volunteers have registered to participate.
A family was recently approved to be the partner family that will ultimately end up owning the home. Partner families pay for the home through a 20-25 year interest free mortgage allowing the proceeds from the repayment of the loan to build more homes in the future and must also put in 250 hours of sweat equity per able bodied adult.
