Habitat for Humanity & Gentle Creek Country Club Hosted a
Dinner on the Slab of Home 100
McKinney, TX (October 9, 2015) – Habitat for Humanity of North Collin County (NCC Habitat), in partnership with Gentle Creek Country Club, hosted a very special fundraising evening Friday, October 2nd on the slab of their 100th Home. The event was called the “Dinner on the Slab” and took place in Celina Texas. This home is the 100th home constructed by NCC Habitat and is being called The Purple House Project, as purple is the official color for 100.
Future 100th Homeowner, Lisa Camacho, and her family were introduced and welcomed to Celina by Mike Foreman, Celina City Manager. Steve and Beth Darling along with several other key sponsors for the home spoke drawing upon the reasons supporting Habitat is significant to them and their organizations. It was a time of reflecting on the purpose behind Habitat for Humanity’s mission and why it draws others to the cause.
Gently Creek Country Club and 360 Restaurant provided an exceptional complimentary 3 course meal as attendees dined within the frame of the Purple House. Special purple LED lighting, along with creative decoration by the staff of Gentle Creek created a purple glow that encompassed the entire home making the evening a night to remember.
“We, at Gentle Creek Country Club, see ourselves as an extension of our surrounding community, and enjoy lending our gifts and resources to strengthen organizations like Habitat for Humanity.“ said Jessica Poe, Executive Director of Membership & Marketing for Gentle Creek Country Club. “Raising up others is an important part of showing community to those around us. We, at Gentle Creek, really enjoyed the opportunity to be a part of the work habitat is doing to eliminate poverty housing in our area.”
All funds raised from the event will go towards to the Purple House Project. NCC Habitat is looking to raise $100,000 in honor of their 100th Home. To date, fundraising activities are going strong. NCC Habitat is over 50% of the way toward their goal and look to hit the $100,000 goal which will be used to build Home 100 and 101.
