Pint Night Benefit at Hondo’s

Hondo’s and Pedernales Brewing Company (PBC) are joining together to host a Pint Night on Thursday, June 11.  Set for Hondo’s On Main, located at 312 W. Main, the event will take place from 5-7 pm. Each participant will receive a souvenir pint glass with their first beer. Live music will also be featured by Davey Schrank.  During that time, courtesy of Hondo’s, 50 cents of each pint sold will go to support Habitat for Humanity of Greater Fredericksburg. Pedernales Brewing Company will then match that donation.
“We are delighted to be partnering with two local businesses that often go the extra mile to help our town’s non-profit charities,” said Kelly Musselman, Vice-President of the Fredericksburg Habitat for Humanity affiliate. “Habitat is greatly appreciative of the support we receive from our local community in helping our mission of building decent, safe, affordable homes for those in need.”
Habitat for Humanity has just finished up House #15 located on 306 W. Park Street. A dedication is planned in June for the newest homeowners. Habitat plans to begin work on House #16 and is currently raising monies through their “Raise the Roof” fundraiser to cover the cost of materials. Cost of a Habitat home currently runs about $90,000. As in all Habitat homes, labor is volunteer.
Musselman notes that future Habitat homeowners must meet strict criteria to become eligible for a Habitat home and must put in 300 hours of “sweat equity”- actual labor on their new home. Homes are not “given away”; just like any other homeowner, Habitat families must make a down payment and a monthly mortgage payment, which includes insurance and taxes. Full equity is not realized until the mortgage is paid off within twenty to twenty five years.
Representatives from Habitat for Humanity will be on hand at Pint Night to offer information about the organization. Donations of any amount are welcome and are tax-deductible. All donations go toward building costs of House #16.
Habitat for Humanity of Greater Fredericksburg is privately funded and receives no government monies. This year marks their 20th anniversary of building affordable homes for those in need in our community.
“We appreciate all the support, interest, and help we have received over the past twenty years and want people to know that they do make a difference in other’s lives,” Musselman said.
