Once again this year I attended the Habitat for Humanity of Clallam County’s ‘Taste of the Peninsula’ fund raising event held at the Sunland Conference Center outside Sequim. They were celebrating 25 years of providing low cost housing to the under-housed of the North Olympic Peninsula.
Spirit Vision Films again produced a short video to highlight the history of this ministry and was shown at the event. Unfortunately due to copyright issues the video could only be shown at the event and I will not be able to upload it to this site. But I took plenty of images of the event to capture the flavor of the fund raiser. Their theme this year of course was the 25 year history, but they gave out 34 wooden doors to the community’s of Sequim, Port Angeles, and Forks to create artwork highlighting that 25 year theme. They were then auctioned off this evening to help the organization going forward.
For the first time Habitat is expanding, with the help of the City of Sequim and the Sequim Sunshine Rotary (Rotary International). They have created what they call the ‘Neighborhood Revitalization Program.’ Now in addition to providing affordable low cost homes to the Peninsula, they will be assisting low income home owners that cannot afford to do critical repair, home preservation, and weatherization. Very cool!
The event highlighted some great wines from local wineries including Olympic Cellars Winery where I have done quite a bit of work in the past. It was good to see Lisa and Tom, the owners of the winery there tonight. Also represented were many local eateries that provided absolutely luscious food for the folks at the fund raiser. Great stuff!
All in all it was another great night for the organization. I am looking forward to working with Colleen, Cyndi, and Trisha in the future. These folks are awesome!
Here are some of the images I shot this evening:
