Events

There's nothing like a good party.  Especially when you know that proceeds are benefitting hard-working families right in your neighbourhood.  From our classic golf tournament to new and innovative fêtes, we always have something going on in Waterloo Region that's worth more than just pencilling it in your calendar.  

Celebrate Homeownership: 2017 Dedication

You could literally feel the bubbling hope, barely contained excitement, and unbridled joy bursting forth on Kehl Street! 3 of our partner families have been counting down the months, weeks, and days to this very moment. The moment they cross the threshold of their new home once and for all - as owners. The day they finally get to eat, play, sleep - and make beautiful cherished memories - right in their very own homes! Celebrate this grand occasion, alongside your neightbours, on Thursday October 19th at 6:30pm.

20th Anniversary Golf Tournament:  June 8, 2017

20 years is a lot of golf.  But that’s also a lot of building homes, hope and communities for a lot of hard-working, low-income families in Waterloo Region.  Can you believe that we just celebrated our 20th anniversary golf tournament?  I’d say that’s quite a legacy.  Thank you to those who joined us this year.  We are so happy to announce that YOU DID IT!  You raised $103,000 which will go to the 8 families we're impacting this year:  6 on Kehl Street and 2 in Wellesley.  THANK YOU!  Check out these photos (you know they all had a blast!).

Mark you calendars for next year:  21st annual golf tournament on June 7, 2018.

Women Build Week: June 12 - 16, 2017

We're building on last year's success and hosting a full Women Build Week from June 12 to June 16! Come for a day or the whole week, and feel energized and empowered as you play a role in fulfilling someone’s dream of homeownership. You don’t need to have any building skills, but you won’t believe how quickly you will learn them. Everyone is welcome, so bring your sister, mother or girlfriends. Anyone can help build homes, build hope and build communities. 

Have your own safety gear?  Excellent!  Just make sure what you have is: CSA approved, green patch work boots and Class E, Type II hard hat. If you require the gear - we have you covered for the day of your build, no problem. Just bring yourself.

Host your own!

Are you passionate about Waterloo Region?  Do you want to continue to see your community grow and grow to be the place you are most proud to call home?  Are you enthusiastic about spreading awareness of Habitat for Humanity? Hosting a fundraiser is a fun, easy and fufilling.  Anyone can do it:  religious groups, workplaces, schools, sports teams, families and social circles! 100% of the funds you raise will go directly to our build program and provide families in your neighbourhood hand up, not a hand out.  We may not live next door, but we are all neighbours!

No fundraiser is too small or too big! HFHWR will play an important role in ensuring the success of your event including a touch point person to guide you and providing you marketing material and even help promote your event.  Ready to break the cycle of poverty?  Email our Development Officer (519-747-0664 Ext.234).
