2012 Cocktails in Havana – An Outstanding Event!


The 2nd Annual Cocktails in Havana, hosted by the VCCAR affiliates committee at the home of Kristina & Peter Kalaydjian was a great success. We would like to thank all of the generous attendees, donors, sponsors and vendors who supported this wonderful fundraising event.  The event raised more than $14,000 for Habitat for Humanity of Ventura County!

Close to 400 local residents and friends of Habitat enjoyed an evening of fun, food, spirits and cigars, and music.  Heather Hughes, representing State Senator Fran Pavley, awarded Habitat for Humanity of Ventura County an accolade in recognition of the event.  Habitat family-partners and future homeowners, Blanca and Maria joined us for the evening!
