Habitat for Humanity of Rabun County will host its 13th Annual Hoedown BBQ Dinner on July 13th from 6 – 9:30 PM at the Dillard House.

This annual event is the organizations largest fundraiser and this year proceeds will assist in providing building needs for four families in Rabun County

The event which features live music, silent and live auctions and great food is from 6 – 9:30 PM and this year is Chaired by Nancy Gribble, Nicole Griffin and Patricia Stueck and is hosted by the Board of Directors of Habitat for Humanity of Rabun County.

Since its inception, the Rabun County Chapter of Habitat for Humanity has worked with over 20 families to provide mortgage agreements allowing for low-income families a leg up into home ownership.

Candidates for Habitat homes must undergo a stringent interview process, pass drug testing, have a clean criminal record, and show a work history that would allow them to pay back the mortgage.

Once a family is chosen, the Rabun County Chapter requires successful completion of the Dave Ramsey Financial Peace University Course before move-in. In addition to the course, each selected family must provide up to 200 hours of “sweat equity” in the building of their home.

This year’s homes will include 3 renovations and 1 new build.

Tickets for the evening are $60 for Adults and $20 for Children. Casual western attire is encouraged.

For tickets contact, Nicole Griffin at (706) 212-2318 or by email at [email protected]
