Hoedown for Habitat Celebrates 10th Anniversary

Murphys, Ca...Round up your family and friends and head to the 10th annual Hoedown for Habitat, Saturday, September 13. The venue is Murphys Park where cowgirls, cowboys and all will find fine food, music for dancing, and a live and silent auction. The event will take place from 5:00 PM to 9:00 PM. Served from 6:00 to 7:00 PM, enjoy a barbeque dinner of beef and chicken with delicious side dishes. During dinner guests will be entertained by the stompin’ music of the Fiddle Gang, a group of six to 14 years olds led by their instructor, Carolyn Sylva of Jamestown. To top off dinner, guests can help themselves to an array of scrumptious desserts made by Habitat Board members and volunteers. The no host bar featuring local wines and beer will be open throughout the evening. While sipping a beverage guests can check out the many auction items that have been donated by local businesses and individuals. Auctioneer Mark Fischer is scheduled to start the live auction at 6:30. The silent auction will close at 8:00. Starting at 7:00, dance the night away as Crystal Image plays your favorite songs. The group, led by John Covert, is an area favorite dance band, able to play a variety of styles from an enormous list of tunes. For the Hoedown they’ll focus on rock and country standards.

Adult tickets are: $25 in advance or $35 at the park; tickets for children ages 6 to 12 are: $7 in advance or $15 at the park; children five and under are free. Tickets can be obtained from Habitat Board members or by calling the Habitat office at 754-5331.

Hoedown for Habitat is a fundraiser to build and repair homes in partnership with Calaveras County families that are in need of affordable housing. To date Habitat for Calaveras has built 12 homes in San Andreas, Valley Springs and West Point and repaired numerous others throughout the county. This year’s proceeds will be directed to completing two new homes in Copperopolis.

A helping hand
Posted on: 2014-08-22 19:50:31   By: Anonymous
Habitat is one of the charities that understands people need a helping hand, not a handout. Families buy the homes that Habitat builds, and are required to help with their own labor and service. Once the Copperopolis projects are under way the office will be looking for volunteers to help with construction, meals for workers, errand running and many other ways to help.
Or, you can just come to the Hoedown, have a good time and good food, and contribute that way.
I'll be there.
