Fair Housing Center hosts annual fundraiser

The Fair Housing Center hosted its annual fundraiser celebration There’s No Place Like Home on August 9, 2018 at The Pinnacle, Maumee. The happy hour event is part of The Pinnacle’s Twylite Thursday series, with a portion of proceeds benefitting The Fair Housing Center

The evening featured food, networking, and music provided by DJ Moni Featchurs. Items were auctioned and raffles included winning a trip to the Caribbean. 

This year’s event featured a live sculpture creation by Dane Turpening, artist and owner of Toledo Twisted Iron. This past spring, The Fair Housing Center collected nearly 20,000 old keys from across the community that will be fused together to create a new outdoor sculpture. The “Keys to Opportunity” sculpture represents “the role fair housing plays in opening the door to the vital resources that enable one to thrive,” according to organizers.

The evening included a testimonial from Zenola Sherman, a recent client helped by The Fair Housing Center. Zenola experienced mobility issues following a disability diagnosis, making it difficult to navigate the bathroom in her apartment. After a long process during which The Fair Housing Center stood by her side, she was able to obtain a walk-in bathtub that makes her home more accessible and allows her to live a fuller, more independent lifestyle.
