Seeking Treasures

For our Silent Auction at the Habitat Garden & Home Show Gala Reception on Thursday, September 17th, 2015.

How many walls do you have in your home?  Is there artwork of value stored in your attic or under a bed, because you simply don’t have room for it?
Is there a hidden treasure of value, perhaps still sitting in the box from your wedding, in your closet or storage unit?  

Consider donating these valuable items for LowCountry Habitat for Humanity  to offer in our Silent Auction to help support our 25th Anniversary Home.  We will get an official appraisal on the item and send you a receipt for your tax deductible donation.  

Interested in more information, contact Martha Harvey at
843-476-7147 or by email at
