The Best of the Best ReStore Auction
Habitat for Humanity of Brevard County, Inc. will host its first ever, “Best of the Best” ReStore auction on Sunday, March 15th, 2015 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. during the 27th Annual Strawberry Festival held in beautiful Wickham Park, Melbourne. The ReStore plays a critical role in Habitat’s mission to provide simple, decent, affordable housing through the sale of new and gently-used furniture, appliances and building supplies to the general public. The proceeds raised from the sale of items go directly back in to the local community for providing much-needed support to qualified and deserving families waiting for a home of their own. YOU can help make our first year an incredible success by donating new or gently-used furniture, antiques, home décor, appliances or art that will appeal to a broad group of bidders.
Each year 1,000s of volunteers help to make the Strawberry Festival a success. We need you, too. Please consider volunteering, vending, or attending this year and let’s make it the best one ever!
