Watauga County Habitat for Humanity’s second annual Big Kahuna contest ended this past Saturday and the winner of this year’s event is Justin Davis. Justin was crowned the 2016 Big Kahuna at the Don HoDown, the culminating event that was hosted by Appalachian Mountain Brewery. In all, this year’s Kahuna participants combined to raise a total of $16,200, all of which will go directly towards helping Watauga Habitat’s next partner family have a decent, safe, energy efficient, affordable place to live.

The Big Kahuna is a fundraising campaign in which prominent members of the community compete to see who can raise the most money on behalf of Watauga County Habitat for Humanity. Each competitor reaches out to their friends, family, co-workers, and neighbors to see who can help them raise the most money to help solve the problem of the lack of affordable housing in Watauga County.

“It’s great what these friends of Habitat have been able to do to help such a good cause. Hats off to them and all of their supporters for helping make our community a better place to live. ” Said Alex Hooker, Executive Director of Watauga Habitat for Humanity.

Thanks to all of this year’s participants for helping provide a Watauga County family a safe and stable home.
