For the second year, Loudoun Habitat for Humanity has planned a Masquerade Ball and Silent Auction.
The cocktail hour starts at 6 p.m., providing guests with an opportunity to mingle and bid on the long list of silent auction items. The cocktail hour will be followed by a seated dinner and dancing to the music of Pebble to Pearl, a local group that was well-received at last year’s event.
Established in 1993, Loudoun Habitat has built or rehabilitated 21 houses in Loudoun County, serving about 80 people. During the past two to three years, Habitat has built three new homes in western Loudoun in the Village of St. Louis, just north of Middleburg, and purchased, rehabbed and resold six foreclosed properties in the eastern part of the county.
The event has special meaning this year, according to Loudoun Habitat‘s executive director, Jeff Dee.
“We are kicking off our 20th anniversary celebration at the event," he said. "We are really hoping to showcase our impact on the community and make our case for future growth.”
“This is a fun celebration, looking back at past projects and looking ahead to the future,” Dee added.
Some of the long list of auction items include:
- A Joe Flacco autographed Baltimore Ravens 'On-Field' Helmet
- An eight-day stay, in Orlando, including four one-day passes to Walt Disney World
- A Learn-to-Ski package from Liberty Mountain
- A gift basket, including an $80 gift certificate for Catoctin Creek Distillery
Tickets are still available through Friday at $150 per person by contacting the Loudoun Habitat office at 703-737-6772. For information on auction items and corporate sponsorships, please contact Julie Hoffmann at firstname.lastname@example.org.
