On Saturday, April 13th, nearly 500 attendees stepped outside the ordinary and into the enchanted world of Le Livre presented by Crown Automotive Group. Together, we were able to raise over $400,000 in support of Habitat’s mission to build homes, communities and hope.

Our VIP room designers recreated scenes from literary classics including Memoirs of a Geisha, The Color Purple and Where the Wild Things Are, and guests heard from the talented Jennifer Real and her band. The following design teams took top honors at the event for their creativity and design: MMD Events was awarded the Best of Blueprint honor for their Memoirs of a Geisha design, Extravaganza Productions was recognized for The Best Use of Theme for King Tut’s Curse, Cheers! Events was the Architect’s Choice recipient for Where the Wild Things Are and Udream Events received an Honorable Mention for their tribute to Randy Wayne White’s “Doc Ford” series of novels.

Tony Griffith, an award winning Clearwater Personal Injury Lawyer, was awarded the Silver Nail Award. Tony’s involvement with Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas and West Pasco spans over 30 years with involvement in many capacities, from volunteer to Treasurer and President of the Board. Copperhead Charities, Inc. was awarded the Corporate Impact Legacy Award. The organization has supported charities through professional golf dating back to 1977, with funds generated exceeding $41 million.

We will begin construction on the five new homes supported by Blueprint Gala in the upcoming months. Stay tuned for details on these future homeowners throughout their remaining journey through our program.
