Habitat offers a new beginning for family

Tracie Johnson’s new Habitat home will be a new beginning for her family. Last year she experienced several surgeries and serious health issues in 2012. She grew up in Franklin as an only child in a very loving home. She has four children. After spending several months getting her finances in order so she could be approved into the Homeownership program, Tracie is still in awe that she will be building her home this fall with the Women Build.

Tickets are still available for Habitat for Humanity of Williamson County’s Hammers and High Heels event, 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, including 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 the Johnson’s Habitat’s Women Build Program.
Sharon Puckett, long-time broadcaster for Channel 4 and current public information administrator at Williamson County Sheriff's Office will be the emcee for the Hammers and High Heels event.

Tickets may be purchased online at The $25 admission charge includes two drink tickets. Any tickets still available on the day of the event may be purchased at the door for $30.
