East Cooper Habitat for Humanity, a non-profit, nondenominational Christian housing organization, will host its fall “Plan to Party at Alhambra” event on Nov. 14, 2014, at 6 p.m. at Alhambra Hall, 131 Middle Street in Mt. Pleasant. Funds raised will be used to purchase additional land and building materials for more affordable homes for deserving families east of the Cooper.
East Cooper Habitat for Humanity has built 68 homes in the Mt. Pleasant area for families who otherwise could not have afforded one. The need to provide homes to more working, low income families is greater than ever, especially for those families with children who are in substandard housing today.
The evening starts as the Plantation Singers welcome guests who will be served hors d’oeuvres and tasty bites from leading area restaurants including Burton’s Grill, Graze, RB’s, Southerly Restaurant and Patio Bar, and Taziki’s Mediterranean Cafe. Desserts will be provided by the Culinary Institute of Charleston—TTC, Cupcake, and by Wando Culinary Arts. Open bars will serve martinis and other spirits, wine, and locally produced COAST Brewing’s beer on tap. Plane Jane, which has been voted Charleston City Paper’s Best Cover Band for over 10 years running, will play throughout the evening.
Guests will have the chance to bid on many silent and live auction items, including trip packages, one-of a-kind experiences, gift certificates, art and more.
While enjoying the evening, guests will be helping East Cooper Habitat for Humanity ensure that a family’s dream of homeownership will become a reality. Tickets are $75 per person and $125 per couple. To purchase, visit the website at www.eastcooperhabitat.org or call Christine Pinson at 881.2600 ext. 201.
East Cooper Habitat for Humanity is an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, servicing the communities east of the Cooper River in South Carolina. Visit their website at www.eastcooperhabitat.org for more information.
