The Building Dreams annual fundraising event celebrates the dreams that come true for Merrimack Valley Habitat for Humanity families, the heartfelt work, and the necessary resources needed to continue building homes and hope. As the organization celebrates 30 years of building on May 21, 2016, they invite you to participate in this exciting event, honoring Jackson Lumber and Millwork and the Torrisi family. 

This year’s event will be held at a new location, Jackson Lumber, at the Lawrence location, where “The Warehouse” will be transformed into a festive atmosphere of local food tastings, including: Burtons Grill, Attika Restaurant, Good Day Café, Jamie’s Restaurant, LaRosa’s Restaurant, Metzy’s Taqueria Truck, Off the Hook Shuckin’ Truck, Raspberries Catering, Suzicakes, Café UTEC, and The Whoopie Wagon, with waitstaff by At Your Services. They will be serving craft beverages and offering a dedicated Martini bar. Also, guests will enjoy live Motown entertainment by The Amazing Sensations. Buy tickets here.
