Summit Habitat fundraiser delayed a week

Joe Moylan

A fundraiser for a Summit County family, beneficiaries of the latest Summit Habitat for Humanity home project, has been postponed.

Originally scheduled for 5 to 8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 4 at Brooklyn’s Tavern and Billiards, located in LaCima Mall in Breckenridge, the fundraiser will now be held during the same times, but on Friday, Oct. 11.

David Pessel, of Summit Habitat, said last week the fundraiser was planned in conjunction with a party to unveil Brooklyn’s Tavern’s brand new bar top. Created by Silverthorne’s Prism Design artist Tim Schwander, the bar top depicts the Brooklyn Bridge at night, complete with the New York City skyline in the background.

But the bar top will not be installed by Oct. 4, Pessel said.

Despite being pushed back a week, Pessel said Brooklyn’s Tavern owners still plan to donate 30 percent of their proceeds to Summit Habitat. Those funds will benefit April Weber and her family, who are slated to move into the habitat home located off of Boreas Pass Road in Breckenridge by the holidays, as well as future habitat projects.
