Wilkes Habitat for Humanity has just concluded our 4th Annual Big Cheese Competition, a friendly contest to find out who will be The Big Cheese in Wilkes County in 2016. These twelve intrepid Habitat supporters have joined the competition, each agreeing to raise at least $500 for Wilkes Habitat for Humanity between January 1 – March 1, 2016. The person who raised the most funds during the competition will be crowned the 2016 Big Cheese in Wilkes County on Friday, March 4th at The Big Cheese Ball!
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 of purchasing a decent & affordable Habitat home.
