Home for the Holidays is a 501(c)(3)
non-profit organization and annual project
of the Acadian Home Builders Association
(AHBA) and KATC-TV 3. Each year, the builder
and associate members of AHBA build a brand
new, state-of-the-art home which YOU COULD
WIN! Proceeds from raffle ticket sales are
dedicated to LOCAL shelter-related charities
including Lafayette Habitat for Humanity, Faith
House, and St. Michael's Center for Veterans. So far,
AHBA and KATC have been able to donate $1,125,000
to these charities since the project's conception nine years ago. Raffle tickets go on sale Tuesday, September 3, 2013, and the Home for the Holidays will be given away Wednesday, December 11th during a live drawing on KATC's evening news.
In addition to benefiting shelter related charities, a portion of the profits from Home for the Holidays will also be invested in the fund which AHBA has established within the Community Foundation of Acadiana. As the principal grows, AHBA will be able to rely on the interest earnings as a stable funding source to donate even more to their charitable and civic commitments. AHBA also funds construction technology scholarships at UL Lafayette to help train Acadiana's future builders.
