Habitat For Humanity Of Greater Chattanooga Says Few Tickets Remain For 5th Annual Women Build Breakfast

Thursday, February 20, 2020
Habitat for Humanity of Greater Chattanooga anticipates tickets to sell-out for their Fifth Annual Women Build Jazz Breakfast on Saturday, March 7 from 9-10:30 a.m. at the Chattanoogan Hotel.  

"The annual Women Build Breakfast brings together 200+ women and girls of all ages and walks of life for a fun, interactive event," organizers said. "A fundraiser and 'friendraiser,' the breakfast empowers women to stand in support of affordable housing in Chattanooga through Habitat’s Women Build projects."

This year’s event is presented by The Robinson Team of Keller Williams Realty.
“Women are the heart and foundation of our families,” said Jay Robinson.  “Growing up I was taught lessons by a strong woman and I credit my mom with preparing me for the future. Today, I’m surrounded by a team of real estate professionals who are wives, moms, sisters and daughters- -all making a difference in our community. Because of this, it’s a natural fit for our team to celebrate the women in our community who are making a difference for others. We’re proud to provide our support to Habitat.” 

“The Robinson Team of Keller Williams Realty is an active supporter of affordable housing in our community,” said Madison Bradford, development and communications manager of Habitat for Humanity of Chattanooga. “We’re honored to have their team as our presenting sponsor.”

"Not only does Women Build empower women in encouraging families as they build strength, stability and independence, but it also provides hands-on learning and skills used to build a home," organizers said. "In honor of the fifth anniversary, Habitat will celebrate by throwing a jazz breakfast with live music, champagne, and sparkling cider."

“Women Build is a lot of fun and a great way to involve friends and family to make a lasting impact,” said Ms. Bradford.

Tickets are limited as this is expected to be a sell-out event. To purchase tickets or make a gift, visit the Eventbrite page or the Habitat website. Individual tickets are $35 and tables of eight are $350. Parking for the event will be available in the garage for $9 and valet for $11.
