St. Joseph, MI (Vocus) July 1, 2010
Harbor Habitat is a locally run affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International and this year’s seventh annual fundraising banquet is a special Centennial Celebration, commemorating completion of Harbor Habitat’s one-hundredth home. Harbor Habitat, founded in 1995, is a non-profit 501c3 ministry dedicated to building decent, affordable housing in partnership with those in need, in the city of Benton Harbor and Benton Charter Township.
The Hard Hat Ball will be held in Pier 33’s new boat showroom. Pier 33 was selected as a unique venue, highlighting the waterfront environment of Benton Harbor and St. Joseph. Pier 33’s 12,000 square foot boat showroom will be configured to host a banquet crowd of two hundred or more guests for this event. Pier 33’s display of new boats from Chaparral, Pursuit and Scout will be repositioned to allow a large dining area, entertainment and dancing for the attendees.
The evening’s program will also feature presentations by Harbor Habitat Partner Families and volunteers. Michigan Governor Jennifer Grandholm will attend as a specially featured guest, amongst other community leaders, gathering to recognize and celebrate Harbor Habitat’s one-hundredth home milestone.
“Pier 33 is honored to be have an opportunity to host this special event”, said Pier 33 General Manager Tighe Curran. “The contributions of Harbor Habitat’s volunteers, sponsors and partner families to improving the Benton Harbor community truly are to be commended. Pier 33 is looking forward to being a part of this celebration”.
