Tool Belts & Bow Ties:

Habitat for Humanity’s 16th annual Tool Belts & Bow Ties gala is going virtual! For the first time, everyone can attend our famous gala, bid on auction items, and help build a home with our Sponsor a Home auction!

Join us, Thursday, April 1, 2021, for our virtual gala, presented by O’Reilly Hospitality Management and BigShots Golf, and our Honorary Chair, Tim O’Reilly.

During our live-streamed virtual event, guests will join Habitat for Humanity as we raise awareness about affordable housing. You’ll hear about the winding gap between wages and housing costs. You’ll learn how you can make a difference and make a real impact on our community.

Gala guests will have the opportunity to bid on items in our virtual silent auction, purchase the remaining Backyard Bundle tickets, and help build a home with our ever-popular, Sponsor a Home auction, right from the comfort of your home or office.

Our guests will also hear how Habitat for Humanity provides the opportunity to work for, and purchase, a home with an affordable mortgage; how the stability of a home can change a life. You won’t want to miss Amanda’s incredible story of homeownership, and how the Wilmoth Family decided to partner with Habitat to build their future home.

Join us for this virtual gala and help raise enough money to build a Habitat for Humanity home.
