Habitat fundraiser a great success

This past Friday was a wonderful wine/food paired meal fundraiser at the Sunshine Coast Golf and Country Club for Habitat for Humanity. Funds were being raised to support H for H’s Sunshine Coast Village in Wilson Creek. Ed Hill entertained the room as he auctioned art and various donated prizes. In fact, over $17,000 was donated by the guests and everyone had a great deal of fun while doing so. Table seven challenged the rest of the tables to purchase an entire house-full of doors in Habitat’s ‘donate a door’ project. Enough doors were donated to outfit half of the twelve new homes being planned for the Sunshine Coast Village.
The Habitat Harvest Menu was a seven-course meal planned by wine steward Jacquelin George and SCGC’s Jackie Coombs.
