Looking For a Few Good Kahunas!!

Watauga County Habitat for Humanity is looking for Big Kahuna Campaign Contestants

Boone (January 16, 2018)   Watauga County Habitat for Humanity (WCHfH) is celebrating a new year by planning the 4th annual Big Kahuna fundraising competition in the spring of 2018.  WCHfH is currently looking for campaign contestants.  Letters requesting participation have been sent to many community leaders.  There will be a maximum number of Kahuna Contestants. 
Since 2015, this fundraising campaign has collectively raised over $110,000, enough to build an entire Habitat for Humanity home.  Past winners include Linda K. Robinson of Premier Sotheby’s Real Estate, Justin Davis of Town Tavern Blowing Rock and Jenny Miller, Community Volunteer.  Joining this friendly competition is a great way to show your support for Habitat’s work in Watauga County, and participants are encouraged to compete as representatives of their businesses.
The Big Kahuna contest will kick-off on March 1st and the winner will be crowned at the “Don Ho-Down” in mid-May.  Contestants can organize and host various events to raise money during the competition period—for example, hosting a cocktail party for friends or donating a percent of proceeds from your business.  If a birthday or anniversary falls in that time-period, you can ask friends or family to donate to your campaign.  The ideas are limitless, and the Watauga Habitat staff will be behind you all the way, coaching and promoting all you are doing.

Those interested in joining the 2018 Watauga County Habitat for Humanity Kahuna Campaign should contact Director of Development, Allison Jennings at 828-268-9545 ext. 104 or allison@wataugahabitat.org.
