Habitat Hoedown


If you missed our 2016 Habitat Hoedown, then you missed quite a party!  An annual fall fundraiser hosted by the Manhattan Area Habitat for Humanity, this event was a celebration of the hard work of our community to support affordable housing in the Manhattan area with a look forward to the year ahead as we do our part to create a world where everyone has a decent place to live.

 All funds raised support MAHFH projects in the Manhattan area.

This year’s Hoedown found us, once again, in a barn at the picturesque Lazy T Ranch where we danced the night away to live music provided by the Tim Strathman Band, enjoyed a delicious dinner and drinks catered by Arrow Coffee Company, were entertained by K-State’s Swinging Spurs, bid on a variety of Silent Auction Items (see pictures below and on the MAHFH Facebook page) and met the Whihoite’s, our newest Habitat Family selected purchase our House #27  in 2017!  

Check out all the fun in the pictures below, and join us next fall for Habitat Hoedown on Friday October 27, 2017!
