Pedal, Play, Party!

This year, Central Minnesota Habitat for Humanity (CMHFH) is celebrating the 25th Anniversary of our affiliate.  We are planning a family-oriented event for Saturday, July 19th, which will include a bike ride, followed by food, games, crafts, music and entertainment at the College of St. Benedict.  A central feature of the celebration will be the construction and raffling off of playhouses built by local businesses and organizations.  The playhouses will be completed by the end of May and placed throughout the community to publicize the event and to give the community a chance to purchase raffle tickets to win a playhouse. The drawing will take place at the Pedal, Play, Party event on July 19.  Proceeds from the raffle will help further the mission of CMHFH…to transform lives through affordable homeownership.

Would your business/organization be interested in building a playhouse?

This is a great opportunity for your employees to be involved in a creative, hands-on project, which will bring joy to a child and ultimately, impact the life of a Habitat family.
