McKINNEY (Oct. 22, 2015) — The North Collin County Habitat for Humanity (NCC Habitat), will host a formal evening of celebration in honor of their 100th Home. The event is being called the “100th Celebration – A Purple-Tie Event” and will be held on Saturday, Nov. 7 at 6:30 p.m. at the Sheraton McKinney Hotel. The 100th Home constructed by NCC Habitat is being called The Purple House Project, as purple is the official color for 100. Guests are invited to wear or accessorize their attire in purple to mark the event.
Tickets for the event are $100 each and are still available online at ncc-habitat.com/purple-house. Anyone interested in attending is urged to purchase tickets now while they are available. The evening will consist of dinner, live entertainment by Fine Spirits Music, a look back at our 100 families, coverage of the 100th Home and its significance to NCC Habitat, and a Silent Auction. Items included in the Silent Auction include a trip for two to coastal Croatia, vacation package for 14 to Destin Florida, and a jewelry giveaway of a stunning necklace made of amethyst and white sapphire. The necklace totals 121 carats of combined gem stones and the earrings 64.5 carats and is valued at $1,425.
Attending the event will be Habitat staff, supporters, Board of Directors, volunteers and many sponsors including corporate, faith-based, and individual. Our future 100th Homeowner, Lisa Camacho, and her family will be recognized.
This event is a significant part of our nearly one year celebration marking the milestone of 100 Homes. All funds raised from the event will go towards to the Purple House Project. NCC Habitat is looking to raise $100,000 in honor of their 100th Home. To date, fundraising activities are going strong. NCC Habitat is over 70 percent of the way toward their goal and look to hit the $100,000 goal which will be used to build Home 100 and 101.
About the North Collin County Habitat for Humanity
North Collin County Habitat for Humanity (NCC Habitat) is part of a global, nonprofit housing organization operated on Christian principles. We put God’s love into action by building homes and communities. We are dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally and worldwide. We encourage positive relationships throughout the community by advocating for fair housing policies and by providing training to help families improve their shelter conditions. NCC Habitat was incorporated in 1992. We enable families throughout northern Collin County (Anna, Celina, Farmersville, Frisco, McKinney, Melissa, Princeton and Prosper) to achieve the dream of home ownership and dignity. With the help of partnerships, NCC Habitat has built over 97 houses. We also have started a new program called “A Brush With Kindness” where we help low income families with exterior repairs including roof, siding, paint and general clean up. We’ve served 81 families through this program (mostly seniors). Internationally, NCC Habitat has built 34 homes in Mexico, Egypt, Asia Tsunami and Honduras. Habitat also operates a ReStore that is open to the public Tuesday through Saturday. We sell new and gently used building materials and furniture to the public.
