Flatirons Habitat for Humanity
Flatirons Habitat for Humanity is hoping strikes on the lanes will add up to strikes of hammers to build affordable housing for Broomfield and Boulder county families. The nonprofit will hold its first Bowl-n-Build event Sunday at Chipper's Lanes in Broomfield.
The event is aimed at exciting and motivating the Broomfield and East Boulder County communities about local Habitat projects for the new year, according to a news release. The event is from 3 to 5:30 p.m. at Chipper's Lanes, 100 Nickel St. Team registrations are sold out, but guest tickets for non-bowlers are available at $5 per person and can be purchased at the door. Admission includes food from Carrabba's Italian Grill, plus a chance to win prizes.
Proceeds from the event will go toward helping Flatirons Habitat build decent affordable homes for low-income families. Flatirons Habitat is returning to Broomfield after four years and to Lafayette after 15 years with two new housing projects. Thanks to a partnership with Broomfield, Flatirons Habitat is rehabilitating two foreclosed homes in Broomfield. In addition, construction will start in March on the first four homes of an eight-home project in Lafayette's Coal Creek Village. Volunteers are needed for both projects.
