Habitat for Humanity
Steel Toes and Stilettos Gala
Building a house one gala at a time….“The real miracle of Habitat NCR is that it changes not only the lives of the family buying the home, but it also provides a tremendous sense of pride and purpose; teaches new skills to the many volunteers who work together in a team environment. It challenges everyone involved to build a better future for our region’s children and leaves a legacy of volunteerism for the community” – Donna Hicks, CEO Habitat for Humanity NCR
This year as a Ruby Level Sponsor, Ziebarth Electrical Contractors Ltd. is proud in its continued support of the premier fundraising initiative of Habitat for Humanity; “Steel Toes and Stilettos Gala”. We would also like to thank all of our fellow sponsors whose incredible generosity ensures the success of this event.
Although Ziebarth Electrical Contractors Ltd. has supported Habitat for Humanity since 1994, our greatest understanding is how instrumental all of the individuals who attend the gala have been in the success of the organization throughout the years.
