Tickets on sale now for March 11 Carpenters Ball
EAGLE COUNTY — Tickets are on sale now for Habitat for Humanity Vail Valley’s 18th annual Carpenters’ Ball, which will be held March 11 at 6 p.m. at the Park Hyatt Beaver Creek. All funds raised benefit Habitat for Humanity’s local home building efforts, which help Eagle County families achieve the strength, stability and self-reliance they need to build better lives for themselves.
“The Carpenters’ Ball is the official kick-off to Habitat’s construction season,” said Julie Kapala, Communications & Events Manager for Habitat for Humanity Vail Valley. “The dollars raised at the event will help fund the building materials needed to construct six new Habitat homes, which will be built with local families in Gypsum’s Stratton Flats neighborhood.”
Tickets to the 2017 Carpenters’ Ball are $175 each; $200 each after March 3. A table of 10 tickets is $1,750.
Event tickets include a western-themed evening with limitless wine, beer, specialty cocktails and dinner. There will also be silent and live auctions and music by the local favorite Brothers Keeper band. Tickets can be purchased online at http://www.habitat vailvalley.org or by calling 970-748-6718 ext. 122.
“A Habitat home is a stabilizing force for a family,” Kapala said. “Better, affordable living conditions lead to improved health, stronger childhood development and financial flexibility to make forward-looking choices.”
