Hammers and High Heels set for July 18

Purchase your tickets now for Habitat for Humanity of Williamson County’s Hammers and High Heels event, which will be held Thursday, July 18, 4:30-6:30 p.m. at the Darrell Waltrip Honda Showroom. The event includes food booths from several local restaurants, including Sopapilla's, Granite City, Papa Boudreaux's Cajun Café and Sweet Natured Treats. There will be live music, drinks, and more than $5000 worth of silent auction items.

Supporters may bid on everything from restaurant gift certificates, specialty items from downtown Franklin, a Shea Weber autographed Predators jersey, a guitar signed by Hillary Scott of Lady Antebellum and a limited edition, numbered print signed by Drew Brees and Darren Sproles.

All funds from the night go directly to build a home for a hard-working family through Habitat’s Women Build Program. This year’s partner family is Ms. Tracie Johnson and her four children, Destiny, Hope, Joseph and Jacob.

“We are excited about supporting the Hammers and High Heels event and Women Build,” shared John Gallagher, General Manager and Vice President of the Darrell Waltrip Automotive Group. “We’ve been longtime supporters for Habitat for Humanity and we couldn’t be more pleased to be partnering with them again on the Women Build Program.”

“The cost of building materials for a Habitat home is $70,000, and we count on events like Hammers and High Heels to help us reach that goal,” explains HFHWC’s Director of Development Kim Randell. “We can’t thank Darrell Waltrip enough for their generous donation and support to make this event a reality. We will have great food, music, and silent auction items that appeal both to the ladies and the men. It is a great way to have fun, while supporting your local Habitat.”

Sharon Puckett, long-time broadcaster for Channel 4 and current public information administrator at Williamson County Sheriff's Office will the emcee for the Hammers and High Heels event.

“The Women Build brings together hundreds of participants from all over the area. From gathering silent auction items to raising the walls of the home, supporters are using their many talents to fundraise and build this house. I am just excited to be part of it.”
