Habersham to host ‘Jazz on the Lawn’

The Habersham Marketplace will host LowCountry Habitat for Humanity’s “Jazz on the Lawn” featuring local blues and jazz band Blue Mudd on Sunday, November 13, beginning at 4 p.m. Tickets are available for $20 by calling the Habitat for Humanity office at (843) 522-3500 or at the Habersham Marketplace beginning at 3 p.m. the afternoon of the event. Proceeds from the event will directly benefit Women Build 2011.
“We’re thrilled to offer our marketplace as a venue for this important event,” said Habersham Marketplace Merchant’s Council President Leslie Pickel. “We want to help give back to our community any way we can and are honored to host.”
Women Build is a project created by Habitat for Humanity International, and involves the funding and construction of a house by local women. This year’s Women Build is Lowcountry Habitat’s second of these initiatives — the first Women Build was in 2007 and resulted in a house on Prince Street in downtown Beaufort.
The organization generally begins building when they’ve raised $25,000, which is approximately half of an entire house sponsorship.  “Jazz on the Lawn” is one of several efforts designed to meet the halfway point.
The Habersham Marketplace is located at 13 Market St. in the Habersham Community, located off of Joe Frazier Road in Beaufort. For more information, event schedule and band listings, visit www.habershammarketplace.com.
