“We are currently in the last stages of building a home [on] Hill Lane in Edwardsville, Illinois. A local resident, Faith Jordan, and her three girls will be purchasing the home at the end of April. We will be starting a new home build as soon as we raise a substantial portion of the funds.”

Adult plates are available for $12 each, kids’ (age 12 and under) plates are $6 each, and desserts are available for $3 each. Tickets can be purchased online in advance at this link, or at the door on the day of the event.

Taplin said the nonprofit organization builds and sells homes at affordable mortgage rates to those in need.

“Habitat for Humanity provides decent homes to those who are financially responsible and capable but cannot qualify for traditional lending,” Taplin added. “Contrary to popular belief, Habitat for Humanity does not give away homes - we sell the home to the family and the family pays a mortgage every month. Events such as the April 16 Chicken Dinner as well as donations of labor and materials are how we make it work.”
