Couture Construction

Habitat for Humanity of Jacksonville, Inc. (HabiJax) kicks off its 2016 Women Build with Couture Construction & Cocktails on Thursday, March 31, at Linda Cunningham Couture Boutique. The event will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

The Women Build Honorary Chairwoman is Ann Hicks, well known for her Jacksonville philanthropic support and her passion for housing and education. Couture Construction & Cocktails guests will hear from women in the HabiJax homeownership program, sample wines from women-owned vintners, enjoy shopping at Linda Cunningham’s boutique and learn how to become involved in the HabiJax 2016 Women Build.

During the event, 10 percent of all purchases at Linda Cunningham Couture Boutique will be donated to support the 2016 Women Build. Linda Cunningham Couture Boutique is located at 1049 Kings Ave., one block east of Hendricks Avenue at Prudential Drive in Jacksonville. Valet parking will be available.

“We are thrilled to kick off the Couture Construction Women Build program in partnership with Linda Cunningham, and we hope everyone will join us for our event,” said Mary Kay O’Rourke, president and CEO of HabiJax. “The Women Build program provides a work site that empowers women to take leadership roles and learn new skills, while building a home with a hard-working family. The program brings women and men together from all walks of life and changes the life of a family forever.”

HabiJax’s Women Build program will run weekly from April 8 to May 20, 2016. Participants will build a home with homebuyer Redericka, a Jacksonville native, graduate of Robert E. Lee High School and an E-Service Specialist with CitiBank, who is enrolled in the HabiJax homeownership program. Currently, she and her two sons, ages 5 and 3, live with her mother, in an effort to save money to purchase a home. By the end of the program, Redericka will have put in 300 hours of “sweat equity” toward the building of her home.

Tickets to Couture Construction & Cocktails are $125 per person. Women Build sponsorship opportunities are available. For tickets or more information, visit www.HabiJax.org/womenbuild or call (904) 208-6651.
