Habitat For Humanity Of Greater Chattanooga To Host Annual Women Build Breakfast

Tuesday, March 30, 2021
Habitat for Humanity of Greater Chattanooga will host their annual Women Build Breakfast on Saturday, May 22 from 9-10:30 a.m. at the First Horizon Pavilion.  This year’s chair is Alison Gerber, editor and director of content for the Chattanooga Times Free Press.  

This year’s Women Build Breakfast will bring together women and girls of all ages and walks of life for a fun, socially-distant event. Habitat will also be selling virtual tickets for attendees exercising additional caution.
A “friendraiser” and fundraiser, the breakfast is a call to action to all women to stand in support of affordable housing in Chattanooga. To date, Habitat has built 19 Women Build homes in Chattanooga with the support of all-female volunteer groups.

Ms. Gerber said, “It’s an honor to assist Habitat in raising awareness for the important work they do in our community.  From a professional perspective, I’m looking forward to following the story of this year’s homeowner as she completes her journey to homeownership.”

Future Women Build Homeowner Tanieshia, mother of two and Chattanooga native, has consistently worked on making her dreams of becoming a homeowner a reality.  She said, "It means so much to me that I was chosen for the Women Build home this year. Women can do anything and I'm excited to be a part of it."

“This year marks the sixth Women Build Breakfast and while it looks a little different, our goal remains the same: Let's empower women in Chattanooga to make a difference for affordable housing in our community,” said Phil Trammell, Habitat vice president of development.

To purchase tickets or make a gift, visit the Eventbrite page or the Habitat website. Individual tickets are $35 and tables of six are $350. Virtual individual tickets are being sold for $25 and virtual table tickets are $200.

The Migrant Children Should Be Welcomed With Open Arms

They don't deserve the added trauma of being mistreated and abused. They should be welcomed with open arms. Don't worry about our own precious children. They'll get to be exposed to another language, another culture. Children ... (click for more)
