Building Dreams Gala 2023!

The party that builds homes and hope.
This year with an Oktoberfest theme!


Thursday, September 28, 2023
6:00 p.m.
Glen Magna Farms, Danvers, MA


Enjoy a beautiful fall evening under the “biergarten” tent at Glen Magna Farms in Danvers while you experience the camaraderie of supporting our mission of bringing people together to build affordable homes, strengthen families and communities, and foster hope.

Wander the beautiful grounds, savor the delicious cuisine with a slight German flair, learn first hand how life changing a Habitat home can be, and raise your paddle to support Essex County Habitat for Humanity.

If you would like to become a sponsor of the Building Dreams Gala to help our future homebuyers build their affordable homes, please take a look at the event’s Sponsorship Opportunities below.

If you’d like to sponsor both of our signature events and have year-round recognition, please see the Event Partnership Opportunities here.
