Habitat for Humanity Hopes to ‘Nail’ its Fundraiser

The Nassau Habitat for Humanity board of directors recently pledged to increase the number of homes built in Nassau County from two per year to six per year, by 2026. This initiative has brought together a wide range of sponsors and supporters who are eager to ensure the success of Nassau Habitat for Humanity’s new fundraiser: “She Nailed It.”

This is  is an all-female team hammering competition where community sponsored teams race the clock to record the fastest time. The event will be held Oct. 23, 2-6 p.m. at Mocama Beer Company and New South Food Truck Park on Eighth Street in Fernandina Beach.

Nassau Habitat is counting on corporate sponsors and silent auction donations to help it reach the goal. “We are pleased but not surprised with the early enthusiastic response of the community,” said event committee chair Cindy Jacoby. Some of the four-member teams who have already pledged to raise $1000 and will be competing include: WestRock, Amelia Coastal Realty, The Newcomers Club, Buchanan Builders, Pickett Construction, First Presbyterian Church, Rotary Club of Fernandina Beach, Rotary Amelia Island Sunrise Club, Wallace-Pierson Travel, MCG Construction, Sea Cottages of Amelia, the Silver Rappers and Manzie & Drake.
