Gwinnett Habitat Celebrates Two Decades with Anniversary Homecoming Festival

Gwinnett Habitat for Humanity is proud of the incredible progress it has achieved for two decades. To commemorate this anniversary, the public is invited to come and celebrate its many successes at its twentieth anniversary festival. No need to bring hammers and saws to this Habitat function, because this one is all play and no work. Festivities will take place at the site of its first multi-family home construction site in Tucker, Georgia, on Saturday, August 30th, 2008. This exciting activity-filled “Ground Breaking Party” will begin at 2:00 pm and continue until 8:00 pm. Admission is free with a donation of any amount.

An incredible line up of local musicians will serenade the crowd, courtesy of Music for Charities, while free splashy waterslides and bouncy moonwalks will beguile energetic little ones. Local restaurants will be selling delicious food and frosty beverages on the site and other vendors will peddle their wares. All vendors will donate a portion of their proceeds to Gwinnett Habitat for Humanity. Dynamic singer Tammy Allen headlines to top off the event with high energy grooves designed to inspire the crowd to their feet.

Gwinnett Habitat for Humanity’s Anniversary Homecoming Festival is a way they want to say “thank you” to the thousands of area volunteers and sponsors who have made the last twenty years possible. “Almost a hundred families have homes in Gwinnett County, and their kids have grown up going to Gwinnett’s great schools, because of hours of construction done by volunteers,” says Beth Stubbings, Gwinnett Habitat’s Director of Development. “We couldn’t help those families if we didn’t have such terrific community support.”

All proceeds from this event will support Gwinnett Habitat’s Annual Campaign, providing essential operational support for its construction activities. The site of the Homecoming Celebration is 210 Pounds Road in Tucker, Georgia, where Gwinnett Habitat will begin building multi-family townhomes in September of 2008.
