Habitat for Humanity of Hudson County Will Hold Its First Annual Raise the Roof FUN-raiser!

JERSEY CITY, N.J., April 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Habitat for Humanity of Hudson County ("HFHHC"), the affiliate of the home-building volunteer organization, will hold its First Annual Raise the Roof FUN-raiser! at the Culinary Conference Center of Hudson County Community College located at 161 Newkirk Street in Jersey City on Thursday, April 25, 2013, at 6 pm .

The event will include a buffet dinner, 50/50 raffle, a silent auction of exceptional prizes, digital advertising and music provided by DJ Theron Steiner (a.k.a. Tasty Cakes). In addition, all ticket holders will be eligible for a drawing for a very special gift! Laughter, good conversation, and dancing are encouraged!

At the event, a Hudson County student will receive the Edward Levy Memorial Scholarship, an award given for demonstrating a socially conscious effort to support affordable housing in honor of a Bergen County architect who was a strong supporter of Habitat.

The money raised at this event will support Habitat's new construction project, a three-family building in the town of Kearny, with land donated from Hudson County and funding from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), administered by the Hudson County Division of Housing & Community Development. A portion of the proceeds will also help launch "Habitat Helping Hands", a repair program designed to help low-income homeowners recover from the devastating effects of Superstorm Sandy.
