CH Realtor Association Food Truck Rodeo

May 30

Fitch Lumber |

On Saturday May 30, the Greater Chapel Hill Association of REALTORS (GCHAR) will host a food truck rodeo and silent auction to raise funds for the Fix-A-Home project, benefitting a local family located in the historic Northside neighborhood.  Created in 2007, Fix-A-Home is an annual community service project undertaken by GCHAR members which targets homeowners in our market who take pride in homeownership but are physically and/or financially unable to make repairs or perform maintenance on their homes.

The community is invited to the food truck rodeo, 4-8 p.m. at Fitch Lumber, located at 309 N. Greensboro St. in Carrboro.  GCHAR is hosting a silent auction in addition to the food truck rodeo and all bids may be placed at www.winningcause.org/all-auctions/fixahome.  

The 2015 recipient of Fix-A-Home is Ms. Jewel Francis, who has deep roots in the Northside neighborhood. At one time, her family owned much of the property that surrounds her current home. The house was built for her parents in 1974 by HUD on what was her grandparents’ garden plot. As an adult, Ms. Jewel moved in to help her aging parents and she eventually inherited the home. Ms. Jewel shares her home with her Godchild Anita Wilson and Anita's two children, 9 year old Lillie-Marie and 8 year old Elijah. Both children attend Northside Elementary, which is located around the corner from their home.

Fix-A-Home is made possible with the generous support of both in-kind and cash contributions from local businesses and brokers.  If an individual or a company is interested in supporting or sponsoring the 2015 Fix-A-Home project, please contact Anne Hoole, chair of this year’s Fix-A-Home project, at (919) 414-1681 orahoole@fathomrealty.com.
