Proceeds from the event will help support programs that improve the lives of hard-working local families in Somerset and Hunterdon Counties by providing them with safe and affordable housing. Through the generosity of our volunteers, donors and sponsors RVHFH is able to offer qualified families a 0% interest loan. As the homeowners repay their loans, the money goes back into the Habitat program to finance the construction of additional dwellings.
Tickets for the Blueprints and Blue Jeans Reception are $125. For more information on the event or other ways to make a donation, please contact Warrie Howell at 908.704.0016, ext. 14 or development@
