Habersham Marketplace to host 'Jazz on the Lawn' to benefit LowCountry Habitat for Humanity

Updated August 23: This event has been rescheduled for Sunday, November 13, due to the possibility of inclement weather.

Habersham is hosting LowCountry Habitat for Humanity’s "Jazz on the Lawn," featuring local blues band Blue Mudd, on Thursday, August 25, at 7 p.m.

Blue Mudd is comprised of local musicians Vic Varner, Beek Webb and Delbert Felix. Tickets are available for $20 by calling the Habitat for Humanity office at (843) 522-3500 or at the Habersham Marketplace beginning at 6 p.m. the evening of the event. Proceeds from the event will directly benefit Women Build 2011.

“We’re thrilled to offer our marketplace as a venue for this important event,” said Habersham Marketplace Merchant’s Council President Leslie Pickel. “We want to help give back to our community any way we can and are honored to host.” 

Women Build is a project created by Habitat for Humanity International, and involves the funding and construction of houses by local women. This year’s Women Build is Lowcountry Habitat’s second of these initiatives– the first Women Build was in 2007 and resulted in a house on Prince Street in downtown Beaufort. The organization generally begins construction when they’ve raised $25,000, which is approximately half of an entire house sponsorship.  “Jazz on the Lawn” is one of several efforts to meet the halfway point. The Habersham Marketplace is located at 13 Market St. in the Habersham Community, located off of Joe Frazier Road in Beaufort.
