St. Max Dinner & Auction Raises $87,000!

The outstanding accomplishments of St. Maximilian Kolbe’s “Habitat to the Max” ministry is a testimony to the power of faith communities  … working together to help deserving families in Ventura County realize their dreams and help reverse the cycle of poverty.

The 7th Annual “Habitat to the Max” Dinner & Auction, held on March 26th, raised $87,000 — and counting — for House #5!!


A heartfelt thank you to all who attended the dinner, bid on auction items or purchased raffled tickets, to local businesses and individuals who donated to the live and silent auctions, and to the volunteers who contributed hundreds of hours of their time. Very special thanks to top donors Bill and Joan Larson (Top Fundraiser 2010), Joann & Stan Benson, William & Terry Schmidt Charitable Foundation, George Pond/State Farm Insurance, and the Leonis Family Foundation; and to our very generous  in-kind donors Lou & Sas Acosta, Kenny Lee/Merlin’s Kitchen, Susan & Roger Pigozzi, and Stonefire Grill.













Revenue raised from all fundraising events supports Habitat for Humanity’s mission to eliminate substandard housing and reverse the cycle of poverty in Ventura County.
