Silent Auction: Opening during dinner, a small assortment of specially donated items will be available for bidding. The featured item is a beautiful coffee table handmade by Jim Holmes.
This table was inspired with the Habitat theme of building houses in mind. The tabletop was constructed using variegated poplar (also known as purple poplar) and the cabriole legs were shaped from clear poplar. Inside this table, you will find a collection of tools that a carpenter would have used to build homes prior to the days of power tools. The shadow box has been lined with an actual set of house plans used to construct one of the homes that our affiliate built for a family.
