This year will mark our 4th Annual Women Build fundraising competition supporting affordable home ownership opportunities in Harford and Cecil counties. Last year, our campaign was halted as it fell just as the COVID19 pandemic hit. Despite our focus being consumed with the new virus, and our inability to gather together for our usual fundraising and building competition, the teams still raised $15,296! We are so grateful for (and impressed by) our Women Build teams and donors.
Single mom, Kokeeta, shown here with her family will be purchasing the Women Build home this year. You can learn more about her and her journey here. By participating in the Women Build, you are helping Kokeeta and her family fulfill the dream of purchasing their own affordable home.
This year’s Women Build will held virtually again and we plan to keep the fun in the “fun”draising competition. The fundraising competition will run from April 1-April 30th and the team which raises the most will, once again, receive the Tacky Hammer Award with their team name and photo on it to be proudly displayed in the team leaders home or office. Members of the winning team, who donate & share their team page, will be treated to lunch with their team, and the winning team leader will receive a $50 Visa Gift card.
The virtual build activity will include each team being be invited to receive a stud to be used in Kokeeta’s home. Teams will decorate, (drawings, verses, notes of encouragement, signatures etc) and share their team’s “stud” on Facebook for online voting the first week of May. Winning team members, who donate, share their team page and help decorate the stud, will be treated to lunch with their team.
The online fundraising pages can be found here.
