March 4, 2017: DreamBuilders Spaghetti Dinner and Silent Auction
We’ll be looking for your donations for our silent auction. This is our main fundraiser for the year. We use the funds we raise to pay for the homes we build and repair. We are especially interested in:· Sports or theater tickets
· Vacation home rentals
· Favorite bottles of wine
· Other creative ideas!
A HUGE Thank you from us!
A couple of months ago, DreamBuilders asked its member religious organizations to conduct a special fund raiser to provide “seed money” to a new Fuller Center for Housing Covenant Partnership in Franklin, WV. The specific purpose of the fund raiser was to provide funds to allow this new organization called the Potomac Highlands Fuller Center for Housing (PHFCH) to purchase tools, a significant startup expense. We set the ambitious goal to raise $10,000. We needed the funds prior to June 1st to give PHFCH time to purchase the tools in advance of their first build by DreamBuilders from June 20-25.
When the donations were all tallied, we had received $18,875, far more than we ever dreamed! PHFCH purchased many new tools, including a professional transit to help lay a level and square foundation and many power tools to support the build. Michelle Connor, the Executive Director of PHFCH, wrote, “We are so very humbled by your willingness to host this special fundraiser and by its success... You guys are a genuine Godsend and you are awesome!”
Thanks to your generosity and the hard work of our team of 33 volunteers from June 20-25, there is a new three bedroom home in Pendleton County, WV. The homeowners are Dennis and Milly Eye. Dennis is a retired career Marine who served our country around the world. It was our great pleasure to get to know Dennis and Milly during the week. At the closing ceremony on the last day, both Dennis and Milly broke down in tears as they said there was no way they could ever repay us—their prayers had been answered. Those comments alone were far more than enough to repay us.
And, this is just the beginning. The tools you funded for the Fuller Center will be used to build many new homes. Once again, thank you for all your support. We couldn’t do this without you.
