Wilkes Habitat for Humanity is holding its 4th Annual Big Cheese Competition, a friendly contest to find out who will be The Big Cheese in Wilkes County in 2016, from January 1 – March 1, 2016. These twelve intrepid Habitat supporters have joined the competition, each agreeing to raise at least $500 for Wilkes Habitat for Humanity. The person who raises the most funds during the competition will be crowned the 2016 Big Cheese in Wilkes County!

100% of the funds raised during The Big Cheese campaign directly support Wilkes Habitat for Humanity’s affordable housing program, with no funds being used for overhead expenses. That means that when you support a Big Cheese contestant, your gift goes as far as possible to give a hard-working Habitat partner family the chance to achieve the American Dream buying purchasing a safe, decent, affordable Habitat home.

You can support your favorite contestant by making on online donation through their website profile located below this message, or by sending a check with their name written in the memo line to:

Wilkes Habitat for Humanity
320 Cothren Street
Wilkesboro, NC 28697
