Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore in Fort Wayne will be closed Thursday for a private fundraising event.
The exclusive “ReStore Your Passion” event will feature a Greek-themed night at the Lima Road location. It aims to raise money for Habitat for Humanity and its programs, including the annual Women Build starting on May 4.
Tickets are already sold out as organizers expect 300 guests to come to the second annual fundraiser.
Guests will have the opportunity to sample foods from several local restaurants, including Club Soda, Salsa Grille, Casa’s, Hoppy Gnome, Courtney’s Bakery, Pembroke Bakery, and George’s International Grocery. Complementary red and white wine tastings will also be available.
Activities include a “She Nailed It” and “He Nailed It” nail-pounding competition, a live auction, and shopping at the ReStore.
WANE 15’s Michael Kuhn attempted a live demonstration of the nail-pounding competition on First News. You can see how it went in the video below:
Community female leaders called Goddess Contractors, including our own Alyssa Ivanson, will also be auctioning off items that they and a handpicked team have rehabbed. At the end of the night, the Goddess with the most votes will be crowned.
If you’re attending the private event, organizers suggest groups carpool because of limited parking.
Attire for the ReStore Your Passion event is “casual dressy.”
