More info: Tickets available at Flavor downtown and Flavor 19. Email cbmanager@habitatns.ca or call (902) 537-0133.

All proceeds go to: Habitat for Humanity Cape Breton Project.

Neat fact: The house they are currently working on is actually a heritage-listed building, and one of the interesting things they are doing is adapting new technology to maintain the historical integrity outside while making it highly energy-efficient on the inside.

Cape Breton Habitat for Humanity Manager Joyce Rankin says, “We hope this house will be an example and inspiration to many. The house is one half of a company house that had been abandoned, and was posing a risk to the family in the other half. All funds raised will be used to make a safe and warm home for a hard-working local family, and preserve the threatened home of another family. We are working hard to make this happen before Christmas.”
