ARCHBOLD – Celebrate the fall season and Halloween with an October Fest Beer-n-Brat Bash and help Habitat for Humanity. The bash will be Saturday, Oct. 31 starting at 6 p.m. at The Blue.
Habitat’s mission is to provide simple, decent and affordable housing and home repairs for families in Fulton County who demonstrate a need and desire to better their environments. Families must qualify into the program, participate in educational classes and invest numerous hours of labor into Habitat building and repair projects.
Habitat homes are not free; families are required to make monthly payments, which are used to help fund Habitat’s mission. Habitat does not charge interest to homeowners, thus fulfilling the biblical philosophy that you help your neighbor without expecting anything in return. This keeps the payments typically cheaper than rent and more affordable.
Habitat is not government funded. Habitat is a 501(c)3 organization and a local United Way partner agency. Without community partnerships, donations, volunteers and fundraisers like this, Habitat for Humanity would not be able to help families reach their dreams of safe and affordable home ownership.
October Fest vouchers are on sale for $25 each. A voucher is good for admission, one flight of beer or wine (bearer’s choice which) for tasting and a buffet meal including pulled pork, chicken breasts, a variety of sides and, of course, brats. Additional beverages and food available for purchase. Soft drinks and coffee are complimentary with voucher purchase.
It’s Halloween, so yes, there will will offer an optional costume contest. Wear your best “get-up” and be judged for prizes. There is an optional 50-50 drawing.
The Blue is located at 301 N. Defiance St. in Archbold and will provide food and drink for the event. Custom Cuts Lawn Care, LLC is the event’s entertainment sponsor for the evening and Gypsy Luvin’ has graciously discounted their fee to benefit the Habitat mission. All proceeds will benefit Habitat for Humanity of Fulton County, Ohio.
