2016 Cheeseburgers in Paradise 
Volunteer Appreciation Party

 
We were blessed with a beautiful Lowcountry Spring evening on April 28, at the home of Jack and Sharon Dwyer. Quentin and Barbara Tedder grilled burgers and hot dogs to perfection. Dell Villemaire served beverages, including fabulous Margaritas, donated by The Carolina Tavern. Thanks also to Palm Key Catering & Events, Joe Loves Lobster Rolls, Picklejuice Productions, and Eat Sleep Play Beaufort for their support of this event.

Volunteers contributing the top 10% of volunteer hours were presented with recognition certificates. Arthur Morrow was the honored recipient of The Golden Helmet award, in recognition of his many years of volunteering with LowCountry Habitat. Arthur has now moved from his Dataw home to The Seabrook of Hilton Head and is enjoying life there. What a great evening of fun and fellowship!

Save-The-Date

UpcycledArtAuction2016 2

Saturday September 17, 2016
6-9 pm at The Shed in Port Royal

In the Fall of 2014, the ReStore celebrated its 10th Anniversary by hosting an UpCycled Art Auction Event that raised half of the monies needed for the ReStore home. An UpCycled Art Auction is a celebration of local and regional craftsmen who have repurposed, recycled, reclaimed or reimagined materials to create art. This year, we are hosting a second UpCycled Art Auction on September 17, 2016 at The Shed in Port Royal to raise $30,000 to complete the sponsorship for this house. It will truly be a wonderful celebration featuring food, fun and fellowship for all. 
TICKETS WILL BE AVAILABLE SOON!

Correction
 
In last month's The Hammer we congratulated Bobbi Weber on being awarded 2015 Woman of the Year at the Power of the Purse event on March 19 at Oldfield Golf Clubhouse.
Bobbi is, in fact, 2016 Woman of the Year and the event was held March 10 at The Soiree.

 
LowCountry Habitat wishes all our supporters and friends
a Safe and Blessed
