Now that Spring has arrived in the Central Valley, it’s time to start thinking about Birdhouses! Habitat for Humanity’s Annual Birdhouse Auction is taking on a slightly different look this year but still has all the creativity and inspiration of past live events. In partnership with Brendan J. Farrell Mortgage Consultant/American Pacific Mortgage, the Birdhouse Auction is going virtual. This year’s event will feature a week-long , online-auction with donated items and baskets from local businesses, individuals and artisans. Featured items include a $600 perfume basket donated by Macy’s, a custom-made bar featuring a “live edge” redwood top by David Ochoa, a wine and chocolate basket donated by Grocery Outlet and much more. On the evening of May 14th, Tulare County Supervisor Amy Shuklian will host the Live/Virtual event and live auction. Local artists have created amazing birdhouses that will be available for bid along with three custom-painted, works-of-art from speed painter Rick Alonzo. Proceeds from the Birdhouse Auction will help Habitat fulfill our mission of building homes, communities and hope. Join Habitat and support more affordable housing by registering for the Birdhouse Auction and bidding generously on silent and live auction items.
