Apricot Lane Boutique Raises Funds for Fort Collins Habitat for Humanity Women Build Program

Fort Collins, Colo. (Aug. 16, 2016) – On July 28, 2016, Fort Collins Habitat for Humanity partnered with locally owned boutique, Apricot Lane, for a community fundraising event to benefit the Women Build program. Apricot Lane hosted a Fashion Party that returned 20 percent of profits to Fort Collins Habitat for Humanity, raising a total of $326.26.

“We had a spectacular night of shopping and fashion, complete with refreshments and advice from personal stylists,” said Judy McLean, Owner of Apricot Lane. “The best part was having the opportunity to support this organization that works tirelessly to solve the affordable housing crisis in our community.”

The funds generated at the event will directly benefit the Women Build program, which unites women of all backgrounds and demographics to support the ideology that every person should have access to reliable, affordable housing. In 2016 alone, the program has gathered more than 175 women to build the Swift family home, through volunteer hours and giving monetary support.

“Thanks to the generous and hardworking ladies of Women Build, we are able to bring safe and good quality housing to our neighbors,” said Kristin Candella, Executive Director of Fort Collins Habitat for Humanity. “We are truly grateful to Apricot Lane for supporting this mission in such a fun and positive atmosphere.”
