Local Realtors “Fix A Home” – And You Can Help
The Greater Chapel Hill Association of Realtors has launched its annual “Fix-A-Home” project, and they’re asking for your support this weekend.
The GCHAR will host a food truck rodeo and silent auction on Sunday, June 1, from 3-7 p.m. at Carrboro Town Commons, with proceeds going to the project. Food trucks include Parlez-Vous Crepe, Chirba Chirba Dumplings, Pie Pushers, Steel String Brewery, Captain Poncho’s Taco Truck, MaMa Duke’s, and Tar Heel Creamery.
Bidding is underway now online for the silent auction; click here to see a list of items and place a bid.
The event will benefit the annual Fix-A-Home project, launched in 2007 to help local homeowners who are physically or financially unable to repair or maintain their homes. This year’s recipient is Barbara Foggie, a founding member of EmPOWERment, Inc., and a retired Certified Nursing Assistant at UNC Hospitals who’s lived at 307 Sunset Drive since 1968. (The house that’s currently on the site was built in 1981.) Volunteers will fix the home’s heating system, install new appliances, and make the home handicap-accessible, among other things.
Anne Hoole of Fathom Realty is the chair 0f this year’s Fix-A-Home project. She stopped by WCHL this week to talk with Aaron Keck.
Hoole says last year’s project cost about $35,000, and they’re expecting a similar cost this year. Visit ChapelHillRealtors.com to learn more – and if you’d like to support or sponsor Fix-A-Home this year, contact Hoole at 919-414-1681 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
