The Habitat for Humanity’s most recent fundraising campaign, the Shoes and Champagne Gala Evening auction and sale, looks to be a promising one, with celebrities and other famous figures pitching in and donating their footwear for the cause. Golfer Michael Weir and pop artist Jessica Simpson are among those who are pitching in.
Jordan Staal, who hails from Thunder Bay, also donated a pair of skating shoes, while Kim Kardashian was also confirmed to be lending a helping hand. Knowing the socialite’s love for fashion, organizers feel her help will definitely go a long way.
Diane Mitchell, Habitat for Humanity’s Thunder Bay CEO, hopes that these celebrity items will attract attention and raise awareness on the Habitat’s mission. The pairs of shoes will be auctioned off on the 6th of October, with proceeds of the event to be used for the construction of homes for less fortunate families in the City of Thunder Bay.
Mitchell pointed out that the organization was fortunate to have an easy time getting shoes from celebrities. Apparently, Habitat for Humanity’s cause immediately piqued the attention of numerous famous figures.
Tickets for the auction are now on sale and are priced at $40.00 each.
