Audrey Liu, SLV Habitat for Humanity, said of the event, “It was very moving evening. Two of our guests were homeowners who have paid off their mortgages. Four of our servers were just little girls when they moved into their Habitat Homes. Two of the girls showed great leadership coordinating the serving crew. One of our servers is just starting her sweat equity hours. Habitat is certainly a journey ... we thank everyone for walking with us and supporting our work!”

A big thank you to the SLV Health Food Production crew and to everyone who donated or helped organize the event.
