Join the Merrimack Valley Habitat for Humanity on February 11 at 6 p.m. at DiBurro’s in Ward Hill, M.A. for the annual Building Dreams Gala. The event will feature a silent auction for items like vacation getaways in Maine and Arizona, a baseball signed by Red Sox player, Adrian Gonzalez, and private lessons with a professional golfer. The gala will feature dinner with music from pianist, Kyle Landry, as well as dancing with accompaniment by the B-Street Bombers. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Merrimack Valley Habitat for Humanity, a non-profit housing organization for the community.
Since 1985, the Merrimack Valley Habitat for Humanity has built and rehabilitated over 70 homes in Lawrence and the surrounding communities. These houses are built by hundreds of volunteers and are sold to low-income families at cost with zero-interest mortgages. Recipients then, in turn, help build other homes within the community. To cover the increasing cost of supplies and materials, donations and volunteer efforts play a vital role in keeping the Merrimack Valley Habitat for Humanity alive and thriving. Those wishing to become involved with the program can visit the volunteer section of the Merrimack Valley Habitat for Humanity website. Monetary donations can also be made through the website.
The Building Dreams Gala is one of many fundraising events that the Merrimack Valley Habitat for Humanity hosts annually.
