Habitat for Humanity Williamson-Maury (HFHWM) kicked off its annual fundraiser on May 10 with an online auction, Arrington Vineyards sponsored wine raffle and social media photo contest in preparation for the Hammers & High Heels 2021 event.
Hammers & High Heels is a special program and songwriter night to benefit Habitat for Humanity’s annual Women Build. This year’s theme is “A Night of Songs and Stories,” and the lineup includes songwriters Brennen Leigh, Noel McKay and Tammy Rogers King of the SteelDrivers.
The virtual broadcast event will take place online May 20 from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. and will again be hosted by Dawn Davenport, Emmy Award-winning sports broadcaster and co-host of the 3HL radio show on 104.5 The Zone.
This year, the future owner of Women Build is single mother Searria Peoples and her four children. Peoples invested 200 hours of sweat capital in their home and in the homes of others this spring. She has attended budget coaching sessions, homeownership classes and will save $ 3,000 in closing costs so that she can buy her home with an affordable mortgage.
Hammers & High Heels will benefit the Peoples family and this worthy cause. Registration for the silent auctions is free and the auctions are open to the public. Virtual broadcast tickets are available for $ 20 and include access to the songwriters’ broadcast and full program. Additional add-ons, including dinner from the Italian restaurant Amerigo, can also be purchased.
Social media contest winners will also be announced at the event. Participants are invited to submit their best photos of high heels and hammers.
Guests have become accustomed to savoring Gray’s on Main’s signature cocktails as they enter the event space each year. To stay as close to tradition as possible, HFHWM will be hosting a Facebook Live event on May 18 at 4 p.m. from Gray’s on Main to teach virtual attendees how to make their own homemade cocktails at home – the ‘Hammer’ and the ‘ High Heel. “
