FAIRFIELD, Conn. -- The 23rd annual golf outing benefit for Habitat for Humanity of Coastal Fairfield County has a new feature: online silent auction bidding.
Now those who can't attend Thursday's event at The County Club of Fairfield, 935 Sasco Hill Road, in Fairfield can still participate in the silent auction. For details and to register, visit the website .
Those who can attend Habitat's golf outing benefit have the opportunity to play on one of the most competitive courses in the area, officials said. The event starts at 10:30 a.m. and includes a barbecue lunch buffet, a shotgun start, a reception and dinner, and awards.
Proceeds benefit Habitat's mission of providing home ownership to low-income families in Coastal Fairfield County. Based in Bridgeport, Habitat for Humanity of Coastal Fairfield County has built more than 200 houses for more than 1,000 people since the organization started in 1985.
The non-profit organization relies on community volunteers and donors to build affordable houses for families in need. Officials said they want to eliminate substandard housing.
In addition to building houses, Habitat is a construction company with a green focus, a family services agency, a non-profit financial institution, an affordable housing advocate and a community service project provider, officials said.
Affiliated with Habitat for Humanity International, Habitat also operates a ReStore in Stratford, selling new and used furniture, appliances and building materials. For more, visit the website .
