Journal Pioneer - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Habi­tat for Hu­man­ity Prince Ed­ward Is­land presents its third an­nual Re­Pur­pose for a Pur­pose De­sign Chal­lenge Gala on Oct. 14.

The gala will be held at Char­lot­te­town’s Delta Prince Ed­ward in the Palmer Pope Ball­room.

Re­Pur­pose for a Pur­pose De­sign Chal­lenge is Habi­tat for Hu­man­ity P.E.I.’s pre­miere fall fundraiser. A live-com­pe­ti­tion­style event, teams of de­sign­ers, work­ing with ma­te­ri­als from HFHPEI’s own Re­Store, will re­pur­pose and re­fin­ish well-loved items into beau­ti­ful new mas­ter­pieces right be­fore guests’ eyes.

Guests are in­vited to min­gle with friends to the sounds of lo­cal mu­si­cians in the back­ground, munch­ing on ap­pe­tiz­ers and watch as worn out fur­ni­ture and dec­o­ra­tive items are given new life by tal­ented artists.

At the gala, teams will be pro­vided with a 10 x 10 space to do their fin­ish­ing touches and dis­play their works of art. Par­tic­i­pants will have 60 min­utes to com­plete their pieces live in front of the au­di­ence. There will also be a Sur­prise Chal­lenge for the de­sign­ers to com­plete dur­ing the evening.

At the end of the evening the au­di­ence will be able to vote for Peo­ple’s Choice Award, and all pieces will be auc­tioned off to the au­di­ence, with pro­ceeds go­ing to HFHPEI to as­sist with house build­ing ef­forts in 2018. Re­Pur­pose for a Pur­pose De­sign Chal­lenge Gala will fea­ture de­li­cious food, en­ter­tain­ment by Is­land mu­si­cians, and chances to win great door prizes.

Tick­ets are avail­able for $35 with cor­po­rate ticket pack­ages avail­able for $250. The event kicks off at 7 p.m.
