Habitat For Humanity Raise The Roof Luncheon Brings In $116,000

Tuesday, December 14, 2021

Habitat for Humanity of Greater Chattanooga announced that their annual Raise the Roof fundraiser netted the non-profit $116,000, exceeding their goal for the event.

Habitat officials offered their thanks to those who helped make this year’s event a success. “Last year, we proved that we could still hold fun events like Raise the Roof while being responsible and doing all we could to protect our guests. We knew the bar would be high for this year,” said Phil Trammell, vice president of Development for Habitat. “We are very thankful for the valuable guidance provided by Tenesha and Jacques Irvin, who served as this year’s co-chairs, as well as the amazing support from our presenting sponsors, Crown Automotive Group and the Mark Hite Team.  We appreciate all of the efforts that led to this year’s success.”  

Over the past 35 years, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Chattanooga has built 288 homes and repaired over 100 existing homes, providing more than 1,000 women, men, and children with stability and the joy and security of Habitat homeownership. 

Proceeds from Raise the Roof will go directly into funding Habitat for Humanity’s mission of building more decent and affordable homes for deserving families in Hamilton County.

“The cost of building supplies has skyrocketed over the past year, so receiving this incredible support greatly increases our ability to help those who need it most in our community,” said Madison Rollings, Development and Communications manager for Habitat.
