Charity Auction Supports Habitat for Humanity

The Peterborough & the Kawarthas Home Builders Association (PKHBA) is the voice of the residential construction industry in the City and County of Peterborough and City of Kawartha Lakes. PKHBA represents over 95 member companies including builders, developers, professional renovators, trade contractors and many others within the residential construction sector. In 2021 residential construction had an economic impact of over $1 billion dollars in the City and County of Peterborough and City of Kawartha Lakes.

The Peterborough & The Kawarthas Home Builders Association (PKHBA) partnered with Habitat for Humanity Peterborough Kawartha Region to host a charity event to benefit families in need of affordable housing in the Peterborough area.

The event, which took place on Thursday, December 8th, featured both a live and a silent auction, and a raffle, with proceeds going towards Habitat for Humanity for the construction of new homes for families in need. The event took place at the Stone House Hall at the Peterborough Curling Club. Auction items were donated from local businesses as well as a wine tree with over 30 bottles of wine donated from board members of the PKHBA, Habitat for Humanity and the Peterborough and District Construction Association. 

The charity auction was organized by a group of dedicated volunteers from both the PKHBA and Habitat for Humanity, and received support from various local businesses and organizations. PKHBA would like to thank our members, sponsors and supporters for contributing to a successful event.

“We were thrilled to be partnering with Habitat

for Humanity to support local affordable housing,”

said PKHBA President Mitch Cleary.

“Affordable housing is a crucial need in our community, and this event helped support families in need.” The auction raised over $17,000 from competitive bids and the generosity of PKHBA’s home builder members, business owners and the community.
