Morris Habitat for Humanity’s Leadership Council announces the 15th annual Hearts & Hammers Gala at 6 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 22, at the Meadow Wood Manor in Randolph.
The 2020 gala will celebrate Morris Habitat’s 35th anniversary and raise funds for the organization’s largest project to date — a 25-unit condominium complex planned for Randolph.
“We invite the community to join us as we celebrate 35 years of helping folks in the greater Morris County area with an affordable place to live, whether it’s for homeownership opportunities, home repair or collaborating with community organizations,” said Morris Habitat for Humanity CEO Blair Schleicher Bravo. “What better way to celebrate than to kick off New Jersey’s largest Habitat project, providing 25 affordable homes. Sponsors and attendees will enable 25 families with a hand up to homeownership!”
The evening’s spotlight will be on the Hearts & Hammers Gala Honoree presentations. Gala honorees for 2020 include: Elizabeth Parker, Morris Habitat board member and executive editor and co-publisher of New Jersey Hills Media Group, with the Don Kuhn Inspiration Award; and Corporate Partner awards to Beyer Ford, Provident Bank and Ethan Allen, Northern New Jersey Group.
The fun-filled gala features silent and live auctions, a multicourse dinner, music and dancing. Corporate sponsorships range from $2,500 to $25,000 and individual tickets cost $250. Morris Habitat is also seeking silent auction items and advertisers for the gala journal. For more details, visit www.MorrisHabitat.org/gala or call 973-891-1938, ext. 121.
