Randolph, NJ-Morris Habitat for Humanity will host its 9th Annual Hearts and Hammers Gala on Saturday, February 22, 2014 from 6-11 p.m., at the Meadow Wood Manor in Randolph, NJ to raise funds to support its affordable home building programs.

Gold Sponsors are Longo Electric and Sean and Betsy Monaghan. The current Silver Sponsors are Lakeland Bank, New York Life, and Peter and Diane Wentworth.  The Classic Sponsor is Spencer Savings Bank. Additional sponsors are needed to help support Morris Habitat for Humanity’s goal of bringing safe and affordable housing to families in need.

Besides financial support, Morris Habitat is also seeking journal ads, raffle gifts and silent auction items.  In past years there have been artist signed guitars, posters and CD’s, weekend get-aways, book baskets, theater tickets, restaurant dinners, and much more. It is a great way to showcase your business while helping a good cause.

One of the highlights of the evening will be honoring those who have done so much for Morris Habitat.  This year, New Jersey Natural Gas will be the recipient of the Corporate Partnership Award. Roberta L. Strater, Executive Director of the Morris County Housing Authority will receive the Founders Award. David Bossart, President of Bossart Builders, will receive the 2014 Beth Everett Award and a new category, the ReStore Pioneer Award will go to Eric Lebersfeld, President and Chief Marketing Officer for Capitol Lighting.

The Morris Habitat Hearts and Hammers Gala is a great opportunity for local businesses, corporations and individuals to help celebrate the hard work and commitment needed to help partner families move up to homeownership. Morris Habitat for Humanity will build nearly 80 new affordable homes for local families over the next four years. These 80 families will go on to be vibrant members of the communities where they live, paying taxes, visiting local businesses and often giving back by helping others in need.
