Watauga County Habitat for Humanity’s second annual Big Kahuna contest is underway in the High Country. Ten individuals have taken the challenge and joined the competition. Each competitor is reaching out to their friends, family, co-workers, and neighbors to see who can help them raise the most money on behalf of Watauga County Habitat for Humanity.  All of the money raised by the Big Kahuna participants will go towards helping Watauga Habitat’s next partner family have a decent, safe, energy efficient, affordable place to live. Last year’s Big Kahuna campaign, the first held by Watauga County Habitat for Humanity, raised a whopping $42,000.

“It’s no small task what they have agreed to do so 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.

The individual that raises the most money will be crowned the Big Kahuna in Watauga County at the Don Ho-Down on Saturday, April 23, 2016. As of today, Habitat’s crew of Big Kahuna contestants includes:

  • Patrick Morgan, Keller Williams High Country
  • Megan Carmody, Black Cat Burrito
  • Ricky Pedroni, Casa Rustica
  • Adam Julian, ASU
  • Jen Teague, The Senior Center
  • Scott Eggers, Quality Steel Corporation
  • Rob Dyer, The Best Cellar and Inn at Ragged Gardens
  • Pete Herbert, Boone Saloon
  • Justin Davis, The Town Tavern (Blowing Rock)
  • John Welch, ASU

Each Big Kahuna contestant is organizing and hosting various events now through April 23, 2016. For more information about the participants, events or campaigns, and to show your support, visit www.wataugahabitat.org/?p=375.
