Housatonic Habitat for Humanity: Ninth Annual Dream Builder’s Gala

Our favorite charity, the wonderful Habitat for Humanity, sent out the following press release about our involvement:

RD Weis Companies has stepped up to support Housatonic Habitat for Humanity with a contribution to the Ninth Annual Dream Builder’s Gala, a black tie fundraiser with all proceeds to benefit the Housatonic Habitat for Humanity. The night begins at 6:30 with cocktails, followed by a silent auction, dinner and dancing at 8:00 at the Matrix Conference Center, 39 Old Ridgebury Road, Danbury, CT. Tickets are available for purchase for $175 at (203) 744-1340.

RD Weis Companies became a sponsor of the Housatonic Habitat for Humanity and the Dream Builder’s Gala with the help of HHFH volunteer Rob McGill, an account executive at the company. “I volunteered for HHFH because I wanted to give back to the community and RD Weiss seemed like a natural fit to support this organization. We’re a company that provides home flooring and RD Weis has helped out the Habitat for Humanity in the past,” says Mr. McGill.

Our work with Habitat for Humanity is a true labor of love for RD Weis Companies. Habitat allows us to help build a better future for families and communities,” adds RD Weis Companies President and founder Randall Weis.

The Ninth Annual Dream Builder’s Gala is the year’s biggest fundraiser for the Housatonic Habitat for Humanity. “The Dream Builder’s Gala is a great way for the community to enjoy a wonderful evening while supporting Housatonic Habitat’s mission of building affordable homes for qualified families with limited income,” comments Mary Aly, Executive Director. “The lack of affordable housing is one of the region’s greatest shortages.” Proceeds from the event will help build and renovate homes for qualified families who might not otherwise afford their first home. The evening promises to be a festive one, with a cocktail reception, silent auction, dinner and dancing music provided by the band The Subscribers.
