Homebuilding and musical theatre might not seem like the most obvious pair, but nonprofits in Nevada County are always seeking creative ways to collaborate for the sake of a worthy cause. On June 9th, Nevada County Habitat for Humanity and Sierra Stages are once again joining talents to present a Broadway revue to benefit House #7 in Habitat’s 16-Home Heritage Oaks development. The concert will feature actors and singers performing a sneak peak of musical numbers from Sierra Stages’ upcoming productions of Avenue Q and Closer Than Ever, in addition to other Broadway favorites.
Tax deductible donations will go directly to purchasing building materials for Amanda Polejewski’s home. Amanda is a single mother of Jordan, a happy and energetic 20-month-old who was born with Cystic Fibrosis. Because of his sensitive lungs, having a clean home free of mold and other irritants is essential to his health. On becoming a homeowner, Amanda says, “I’m really excited and grateful, and I can’t wait to get working on my home! I’m touched by the support of the community, and I’m so happy to look forward to having a safe home for Jordan.”
Nevada County Habitat is also grateful for the support it receives from many different channels of the community to accomplish our mission of building affordable homes for hardworking families. We invite the public to come to this free concert and enjoy the music to thank you for your ongoing help and encouragement in countless important ways.
The concert is happening at the Peace Lutheran Church on June 9th at 3:00 pm. Attendees will:
· Enjoy local talent performing pieces from Sierra Stages’ upcoming musicals.
· Hear from Amanda Polejewski, the Habitat Homeowner whose home the concert benefits, about what owning a home means to her family.
· Learn about Habitat and its mission.
· Eat and drink light refreshments at the reception following the concert.
Whether you are a Broadway fan, a supporter of affordable housing in our community, or just looking for a fun and meaningful afternoon, you will want to come, be entertained, and learn about how Habitat is making positive change in Nevada County!
