Silent Auction and House Drawing

This year we are offering two opportunities for some fun prizes during our event! As usual, we have some beautiful items from our partners with the Prison Build Program available in our Silent Auction. Click here to view the auction and start bidding!

We also have a fun opportunity for your affiliate to win a whole house package, including wall panels, cabinets, and countertops (a more than $7,500 value prize!) When you make a donation of $25 or more to Habitat Michigan at the link below, you can enter an affiliate of your choice to be entered into a drawing to win the house package! The more you give, the more entries your affiliate gets. Learn more and donate here!
