Real­tors group holds fundraiser for Habi­tat

Dorchester Star - - Regional -

CAM­BRIDGE — The MidShore Board of Real­tors held its sec­ond paint night and last fundraiser of the year at Jimmy & Sooks in Cam­bridge, with the pro­ceeds ben­e­fit­ing the Women’s Build project of Habi­tat for Hu­man­ity Chop­tank.

Habi­tat for Hu­man­ity was se­lected by MSBR as the fo­cal char­ity for the re­al­tor as­so­ci­a­tion for 2016, and paint night was one of many fundrais­ers that were held through­out the year.

Forty-one men and women par­tic­i­pated in the two hour event where they were given step by step in­struc­tions for a pre-se­lected pic­ture. “This is a fun and pop­u­lar way to raise funds, bring at­ten­tion to Habi­tat and en­joy a night out,” said cur­rent MSBR pres­i­dent Martha Witte Suss.

Women Build is a Habi­tat for Hu­man­ity pro­gram that em­pow­ers and en­gages women in learn­ing con­struc­tion skills, build­ing homes, pos­i­tively impact- ing our com­mu­ni­ties. This pro­gram brings to­gether women from all walks of life and their many abil­i­ties, and is more than just swing­ing a ham­mer.
