All proceeds from this event will help Habitat build more affordable homes and help with the Puna Recovery efforts. Last year, Habitat’s fundraising gala sold out and over $35,000 was raised to help with their programs and services. Attendees can bid on some fabulous silent auction items, take a memorable photo at our photo booth, and enjoy a delicious dinner buffet.

Individual tickets, tables of 10, and other sponsorship opportunities are available.
