30th Anniversary Breakfast

 

2017 Annual Breakfast at Christ Community Church

With over 400 guests, this year’s fundraising breakfast was one of the best in Greeley Area Habitat for Humanity history, raising enough money to fund a home for a local family in need. Dick Monfort, owner and CEO of the Colorado Rockies, knocked it out of the park, by emphasizing the excellent investment Greeley Area Habitat for Humanity is in our community. Also providing words of inspiration, Veteran James Hamm, Jefferson High School Construction Management Pathway Program student Braxton Shepard, as well as a moving video through the eyes of our Jefferson High School Construction Management Pathway Program Students.

A sincere thank you to everyone who attended for supporting our mission to end poverty housing. The breakfast allowed the community to experience firsthand how their donations impacted the lives of our hard working Habitat partner families.

 Thank you to our breakfast sponsors without whom, the event would not have been possible! Special appreciation to Christ Community Church and their video producer Tony Garza for their contribution and for underwriting our amazing signature Greeley Habitat event.

Sincere appreciation to all of our generous sponsors!

Thank you to our Breakfast Sponsors!
