A playhouse, doghouse and a carved mahogany coffee table are just a few auction items that will go on the block at Prescott Area Habitat for Humanity's Toolbelts and Tuxedos fundraising gala on Saturday, Nov. 1.
The gala will take place from 6 to 10 p.m. at the Prescott Resort. Tickets ($75 per person and $650 for a table of 10) are available at the PAHH office, 1230 Willow Creek Road in Prescott.
The goal of this year's Toolbelts and Tuxedos is to raise money to build PAHH's 55th house.
Prescott general contractor De Carol Company is building the Victorian-style playhouse for the evening's silent auction; Prescott artist Connie Foss has created the "grazing mares" coffee table with a glass top; and Terry Trujillo, president of Chamberlain Architect Services Inc. in Sedona designed the modern canine residence that Westpac Construction Inc. of Flagstaff and Phoenix built for the gala.
In addition, a vast array of silent auction prizes will be on display for bidders at the beginning of Toolbelts and Tuxedos.
The evening's festivities will also feature live jazz, dining, and a drawing for winning tickets in the annual Toolbelts and Tuxedos raffle.
Raffle prizes include a "Create your own Paradise" vacation package, valued at $3,000, or the winner may take the cash instead; a Dell laptop; a 42-inch HDTV; $500 in cash; an auto GPS; and an iPod Touch.
