Virtual Home Dedications Celebrate Homeownership for Two Local Families

WHAT:
Instead of celebrating in person, these house dedications will take place virtually as a Facebook Premiere. Pikes Peak Habitat for Humanity (PPHFH) will celebrate the dedication of two new homes in the Country Living development in Fountain, Colorado via a pre-recorded video.

Normally we hold a dedication ceremony upon the completion of Habitat houses, but because of the current COVID-19 situation, the in-person event will be shared instead on Facebook.

The two homes to be dedicated are the “Veteran Build” and the “Real Estate Build” for Amanda and Ron’s family and Lisa’s family, respectively. Learn more about the families and the house projects here: Amanda and Ron / Veteran Build; and Lisa / Real Estate Build.

WHO (featured in video):
Iain Probert*, PPHFH Director of Strategic Partnerships
Jacob Curbow, Pikes Peak Association of Realtors (PPAR) Board of Directors Chair
Amanda and Ron, Veteran Build future homeowners
Gary Blake, PPHFH Construction Supervisor
Sarah Buchen, PPHFH Construction Volunteer Coordinator
Chuck Smith, United States Air Force Senior Master Sargent (Ret.); and PPHFH Board of Directors Member

*Iain Probert and Sarah Bunch (PPHFH Donor Relations Manager) will be available for interviews Saturday, June 6 from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, either by Zoom or in Fountain at the homes. For details, please contact Laura Williams-Parrish (above).

WHEN:
Saturday; June 6, 2020; 9:00 AM (MT)
