Members of the Creative Homes Team recently attended the third annual 2018 Hearts and Housing Gala at the J.W. Marriott Minneapolis Mall of America presented by the BATC Housing First Minnesota Foundation. With over 500 attendees clad in their best derby attire, they collectively raised more than $200,000 through both a silent and live auction and more than $50,000 to support future efforts of the foundation. Attendees enjoyed the night while sipping on mint juleps and dancing to the High & Mighty band.
The BATC Housing First Minnesota Foundation raises money to help create safe, quality, and affordable housing for communities around the area. This year’s donations will be put towards Avivo, a residential addiction treatment program in Minnesota that allows mother’s in addiction treatment to continue living with their children aged 0-17, and the Minnesota Assistance Council for Veterans which provides veterans who may be experiencing homelessness or other life crises housing, employment, and other legal services.
Creative Homes was a proud sponsor for the event.
