Hard Hats and a whole lot of Heels

By: Elizabeth Sheeks, Habitat PR Intern This weekend, Habitat for Humanity of Cleveland will be having one of the most enjoyable events happening in Cleveland this spring – Hard Hats and Heels 2016!

Toyota of Cleveland is partnering with Habitat for Humanity of Cleveland and hosting the third annual Hard Hats and Heels event in conjunction with Habitat’s Women Build 2016 initiative. Hard Hats and Heels will take place on Saturday, April 2 at Toyota of Cleveland beginning at 6:00 p.m.

Toyota of Cleveland has been a title sponsor for the Women Build initiative and has hosted Hard Hats and Heels since their inception in 2014. Toyota of Cleveland’s General Manager, Monté Burney, and his family recently moved to Cleveland from Montgomery, AL.

“I’m honored and excited to be working with an amazing family-owned automotive group with Bowers Automotive and look forward to growing a customer-focused team, developing future leaders within the business and making Toyota of Cleveland one of the best places to purchase and service your vehicle,” said Burney. “I’m most excited for my wife and I to share Cleveland and Chattanooga with our daughter, Bella.”

Toyota Motor Corporation’s mission is to build more than just great cars; they want to help build great places to live. “Any way we can use our platform to garner exposure for a great cause we will; it’s all about being a great steward of the resources you’ve been blessed with in order to help others,” said Burney.

Hard Hats and Heels takes place in Toyota of Cleveland’s Maintenance Shop ─ making it this event unlike any other. The event will be catered by Tasteful Gatherings and will have adult beverages provided by Tarver Distributing and Ooltewah Discount Liquors. The event includes a time of raffles, a silent auction and a live auction Hard Hat Fashion Show. The evening will also feature jazz music by local musicians, Shawn Perkinson, Shaun Sneed, Patrick Keeling and Dan York.

The event’s live auction portion will feature high-value items including: a Whirlpool Custom Double Oven, a Tennessee Titans sports package, Bristol Speedway tickets and a 7-day vacation to the Royal Haciendas Resort in Cancun, Mexican. The silent auction portion includes over 50 prize packages donated from local businesses. The raffle items are some of the best offers of the evening. In addition to the twenty-eight different raffle items offered, there will be a drawing for a $1,000 cash prize, presented by Cleveland Insurance and Grange Insurance. For every $2.00 raffle ticket that is purchased, the guest will automatically be entered into the cash prize drawing.

All of the proceeds from this event will go toward building the homes of Amber Smith and LaTonya Clark – the two future homeowners who are a part of the Habitat Homeownership Program. Both of these women have worked extremely hard to provide the best life possible for their family.

“I believe Habitat is important to any community,” said Burney. “Habitat for Humanity ofCleveland is doing a great work within the community and that’s evident in the passion and amount of work they’re pouring into this fundraiser.”

 Tickets for this event are $50 per ticket or $400 per table (8 seats). Purchase your tickets HERE!
