Comal Habitat for Humanity Holiday Fundraiser 2016

15401036_10210812653809916_4029133205936043804_nThe Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® New Braunfels office hosted an open house fundraiser directly benefiting the Comal Habitat for Humanity. Julie Gezella, VP of Residential Sales for the New Braunfels office, along with the entire team of local Sales Agents helped support this annual cause in a big way. The theme for this years’ Holiday party was “This is Where Awesomeness Happens.”

Nearly a dozen doors were decorated by children from the Lone Star Elementary and iCento schools for this open house event (5 have been sold so far). In addition to a many silent auction items, these beautiful doors were auctioned off with all proceeds going directly to the Comal County Habitat for Humanity. It’s a win for the children as well, with the winning classrooms receiving cash to spend for supplies.

Homemade food, refreshments and conversation were thoroughly enjoyed while guests admired the artistic doors and auction items. A welcome visit from Santa surprised the children, and not just any Santa – THE Santa.
