wendy's story

Wendy is a single mother of two children, a veteran of the U.S. Navy, and a future Habitat homeowner. In the past two years, her family moved over half a dozen times, at one point living in an unfinished basement in unhealthy living conditions.

Watch Wendy’s Story and see how money raised at this year’s auction is changing her family’s life.

Is your hard hat ready? We’re thrilled to host our 6th Annual Hard Hat & Black Tie Dinner and Auction benefitting affordable homeownership in the Portland Metro area. The evening includes a lively reception with hors d’oeuvres, signature Eastside Distilling cocktails, wine from regional wineries, and Ninkasi beer along with fabulous silent auction packages, opportunities to take your group’s picture in a fun photo booth, and play a game of chance with the Best of Live raffle. Then, enjoy a scrumptious dinner and take part in our amazing live auction.
