Mr. Studfinder a HUGE Success!!!
Nina L. Ferraro, attorney at Ferraro Law Group, chaired the fourth annual Mr. Stud Finder charity auction on January 30, 2014 at Willoughby Golf and Country Club. The event raised almost $50,000 for Habitat for Humanity of Martin County’s 2014 Women Build Project!
“We’re thrilled with the result of this fourth annual auction. Thanks to the generosity of our 15 philanthropic ‘studs,’ the generous bidders, sponsors, our volunteers and staff, we’re off to a great start funding the construction of a home for the McIntyre family,” said Nina L. Ferraro, Chairperson of the Women Build Committee of Habitat for Humanity of Martin County. “Thanks to the record breaking success of the auction, we have raised more than half the funds necessary to complete this year’s Women Build Project.”
Habitat for Humanity of Martin County is a not-for-profit organization that works in partnership with God and people everywhere, from all walks of life, to help eliminate substandard housing by building homes for others, revitalizing neighborhoods, and transforming lives. Since its inception in 1986, Habitat for Humanity of Martin County has built almost 100 homes in Hobe Sound, Indiantown, Jensen Beach, Port Salerno and Stuart.
The family recipients of the homes do not get a free ride. They also work on building the homes along side of the volunteers and are offered financing programs that will allow them to pay off the mortgage at a rate and term within their means. These homes are not a handout but a hand up.
The Woman Build Project is a spin off of the Martin County Habitat. This project allows woman to work together to build a home, when they might have felt less inclined to do so on a mostly male job site.
