All proceeds benefit the building of a home for a local family in need

In response to the cancelation of its annual Hammer & Ales fundraiser due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Habitat for Humanity Buffalo has announced a rescheduled online event. Taking place April 22-24, Habitat Buffalo will host an online auction via GiveSmart.com featuring the items that were originally set to be auctioned at Hammer & Ales.

Featuring over 50 items ranging from tickets to a Yankees-Red Sox game to entertainment & leisure packages at local establishments and so much more, Hammer & Ales is the second phase of Habitat Buffalo’s “The House Beer Built” campaign. “The House Beer Built” is a two-part fundraising effort aimed toward making homeownership possible for a local family.

“Since we began this campaign three years ago, it has allowed our community to lend a hand in the building and renovation of homes for families in need,” said Habitat Buffalo’s Development & Communications Manager Stephanie Lawson. “In these most uncertain times, we are reminded of just how important it is for a family to have a roof over their head and a place to call home. We understand this is a difficult time for everyone, so we invite those who are able to participate in our online auction to check out the many exciting items we are offering and consider bidding.”

Those interested can register for the event in advance, view the items available, and be the first to bid by visiting habitatbuffalo.givesmart.com on their computer or mobile device. The auction will open at 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday, April 22 and will close at 8:00 p.m. on Friday, April 24.
