Carpenters' Ball (March 15, 2014)

The 2014 Carpenters' Ball was a wonderful celebration of all the hard work it takes to build homes, communities and hope! Hundreds of volunteers, donors and Habitat supporters gathered to enjoy a fun evening at Larkspur Restaurant. The tasting stations, which featured cuisine from around the world, created a dynamic flow to the event. The adventurous auction packages and hundreds of silent auction items helped raise funds for our mission.

Pictured here, Laureen Hopkins and Dr. Jon Kedrowski chat about the upcoming Kilimanjaro package that she won in the live auction. Kedrowski will lead the adventure this July.

Home Dedication (May 2013)

Erica Ross’ voice broke just a little as she flashed a million watt smile and spoke on behalf of the six new Habitat for Humanity partner families in Eagle County.

“All of us wanted a better place, a stable place, to raise our families,” Ross said. “We are building a community and a better future. ... Thank you for walking with us. Thank you for being a friend.”

Stratton Flats Groundbreaking (April 2013)
As we completed the first six homes at Stratton Flats early in 2013, the six newly selected families were eager to begin construction on their homes. That construction officially began on the chilly evening of April 10, 2013 as we celebrated a groundbreaking ceremony with the community.

Soulemane Home Dedication (November 2012)
In November 2012 we welcomed the Soulemane Family to their new home. Soulemane Bibikari & his wife Hawa Hamidou have five children, Kadia, Abakar, Aboul, Djenaba & Samba. Soulemane had lived and worked in the Vail Valley for over 10 years and then he was able to have his family join him. You can see his smiling face from miles away!

International Build in Nepal (October 2012)
The 2012 International Build trip was a tremendous success. The enthusiastic group of 21 volunteers traveled thousands of miles to build alongside hundreds of volunteers from around the world to construct 37 homes in Nepal. The experience was powerful for everyone involved including the Habitat Partner Families who purchased the homes. Part of the goal is to build within the construction parameters that can be sustained by the developing country after the volunteers depart. It wouldn't be beneficial for us to use equipment or tools that they do not have access to once we leave. The connections between people were created and the quality of construction was achieved! Click here to read about the experience first hand. 
Fox Hollow Completion Party (July 21, 2012)
Habitat celebrated the completion of our largest project. Fox Hollow is now home to 16 hardworking, local families.  The last two families moved in sometime in April 2012 making the neighborhood complete.

Over 100 local Habitat for Humanity supporters showed up for the big celebration including home cooking and a bouncy castle. The warm day ended in a water balloon fight and the hoses were brought out in retaliation! It was the prefect representation of any good neighborhood celebration!  Click here to read the Vail Daily article.

Habitat for Humanity is proud of the Fox Hollow Development and we look forward to many more, future celebrations!
