It is a great event, and it has a lot of untapped potential to help more Watauga County families in need of a home.” Said Alex Hooker, Executive Director of Watauga Habitat for Humanity.

Wine and beer will be provided through a cash bar by Appalachian Mountain Brewery. Food will be catered by Reid’s Catering who will be working with numerous High Country local farms to provide a Farm to Table menu of all heavy appetizers.
