Hearts meet Habitat for fundraiser

COURTESY PHOTO - Forest Grove Mayor Pete Truax and others gather for West Tuality Habitat for Humanitys annual Hearts for Habitat Dinner and Auction in a previous year. West Tuality Habitat for Humanity will hold its annual Hearts for Habitat Dinner and Auction on Saturday, Feb. 6, from 6 to 10:30 p.m. at the Forest Grove Senior & Community Center, 2037 Douglas St.

The event will feature wine tasting at a no-host bar, a salmon and steak dinner and a silent auction featuring over 100 items

ranging from local wines, dinners, a glider ride, fishing trips, car washes and gift certificates. The oral auction will feature beach house vacations at Manzanita and Neskowin, a $500 gasoline gift card, a hand-carved Santa and dinner for four with Forest Grove Mayor Pete Truax.

In addition to the silent and oral auctions, the dinner auction will include a “fund an item” segment where attendees have the opportunity to pledge donations to help support the organization’s current home-building project called Cooper’s Corners, located in the 3400 block of 19th Avenue in Forest Grove. The subdivision is named for the late Glenn Cooper, who was very involved in Habitat projects.

Tickets to this event are $50 per person and are available online at westtualityhabitat.org and at the Forest Grove Habitat ReStore, 3713 Pacific Avenue in Forest Grove. All proceeds go to support the operations of West Tuality Habitat for Humanity, which builds homes for low-income families in western Washington County.

For more information on the dinner auction, Pat Truax can be reached at 503-357-6506.
