Habitat for Humanity Peterborough & Kawartha Region with representatives from PKHBA and New Beginnings Contracting Services raises over $19,000 from the charity auction

The Charity Auction organized by the Peterborough & Kawartha Home Builders Association (PKHBA), together with presenting sponsor New Beginnings Contracting Services, raised just over $19,000 of donations. The event was made a success thanks to over 40 sponsors and 100 donors who joins us in our mission to empower through shelter.

The charity auction was held last December 8, 2022, at The StoneHouse Hall, and was attended by several organizations and businesses. Gift certificates, items, and even tickets to a Jays game, were auctioned off and sold to highest bidders who attended the event.

Habitat for Humanity Peterborugh & Kawartha Region CEO Susan Zambonin welcomed the guests, and shared about how the charity event donations will benefit families in need of safe, decent, and affordable housing. Habitat homeowner Ashley Doust shared how a hand-up from Habitat has improved her and her daughter’s lives.

The funds raised from the event will support Habitat for Humanity Peterborough & Kawartha Region’s build projects, including the 12-unit condo development on Leahy’s Lane.
