Hammers & High Heels Tickets on Sale Now

Habitat for Humanity Williamson-Maury’s (HFHWM) Hammers & High Heels fundraiser, presented by Community Health Systems, will return to the Factory at Franklin on Saturday, May 18th, 2024, with a new theme, “There’s No Place Like Home”.

Hammers & High Heels is HFHWM’s largest fundraiser of the year, bringing over 400 people together to raise $100,000 towards the Women Build home. “When contemplating our 15th annual Hammers & High Heels theme, we wanted it to encompass the generous hearts, smarts, and courage that goes into serving local families. Pairing perfectly with the heartwarming phrase, ‘there’s no place like home,’ Emerald City felt like the natural choice,” shared HFHWM Marketing & Events Manager, Bree DeMoss.

For an event centered around empowering a local woman, it only makes sense that the hosts for the evening are two friendly-faces in the community. Host and producer of Local on 2, Larissa Wohl will be cohosting the evening with the Pink Power Ranger herself, Catherine Sutherland.

Guests of the Emerald City soirée will begin the evening with a gourmet plated dinner sponsored by Gresham Smith and created by Cater 615. The menu, adorned with green and gold, will include a Peruvian Statler chicken breast or Moroccan spiced cauliflower steak with green sauce, roasted Yukon gold potatoes, and green beans with balsamic grilled pearl onions. For dessert, attendees will enjoy an “Over the Rainbow” fruit tart featuring vanilla bean, lemon curd, and rainbow-colored fresh berries.

Libations will include a selection of beer courtesy of Mill Creek Brewing Company, wine donated by Lynchburg Winery, and a rosé option donated by professional racecar driver, Danica Patrick. Attendees also have the option of enjoying signature cocktails crafted by Papa’s Pilar.

As a new addition to the Hammers & High Heels experience, HFHWM have partnered with Jackson National to add a “Friends of Habitat” section on the second level of Liberty Hall. This is an excellent way for young professionals, entrepreneurs, and small businesses owners to network in the community and make a difference.

“Friends of Habitat” attendees will enjoy heavy hors d’oeuvres and have access to the auction and other event amenities at a ticket price of only $50.

All Hammers & High Heels attendees can kick off their ruby red heels and hit the dance floor as Emerald Empire takes the stage to play everyone’s favorite party hits. The event will also feature a live and silent auction with items from your favorite sports teams, staycation destinations, and local brands!

All proceeds from Hammers & High Heels will directly contribute to purchasing building materials for Chasity Britton’s future home. Chasity’s journey from experiencing the transformative power of homeownership as a child to becoming a single mother striving for a better future epitomizes the mission of Habitat for Humanity.

Tables, half tables, and individual tickets for this magical evening are now available for purchase at womenbuildtn.com.
