West Tuality Habitat schedules auction

West Tuality Habitat for Humanity will hold its 10th annual Hearts for Humanity Valentine Gala and auction on Feb. 15 at Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club in North Plains.

The event raises funds to build houses in the West Tuality area, including Cornelius, Gaston, Forest Grove, Banks and North Plains.

West Tuality Habitat for Humanity is currently building five condo units at 19th Avenue and Oak Street in Forest Grove. The first home has been completed and is now occupied. The second home is halfway to completion.

“Many dedicated volunteers and construction specialists are working to change lives and build for the future by creating homes with a heart,” said Pat Truax of the Hearts for Humanity Gala committee. “We are hoping to raise $57,000 to fund the next building package at this year’s fundraiser.”

Tickets for the gala may be purchased by calling Wendy Bruno at Premier (Columbia) Community Bank, 503-992-8600. Tickets are $50 and include wine tastings from Apolloni and Elk Cove vineyards, hors d’oeuvres and dancing to the music of the Brett Lucich Band, as well as the silent and oral auctions.

Donations for the auction can be made by calling Pat Truax at 503-357-6506.
