The Big Cheese Fundraiser 2023

Formerly known as The Big Kahuna, The Big Cheese is a peer-to-peer fundraiser where teams compete against each other to see who can raise the most money for Watauga Habitat for Humanity!  

The rules are simple, teams have two months to raise money by any means necessary, and the team with the most money raised by our finale wins!  The 2023 competition began on April 3rd, and finshed on June 6th at Appalachian Mountain Brewery.  It was an evening of friendship, music, and fundraising to build homes for those in need in Watauga County!

In total, the fundraiser raised $36,535 for affordable housing in Watauga County.  Our top fundraising team was the High Country Home Builders, composed of Brandon McKeever, Sonya Garland, Sarah Grady, and Chuck Perry; their team rasied a combined $17,750!  Our top three fundraisers were also on this team in the following order: Chuck Perry with $6,465; Sonya Garland with $6,290; and Sarah Grady with $2,892 raised...way to go, y'all!

Thank you to everyone for helping us build homes, communities and hope with those in Watauga County.  A very special thank you to our sponsors below!
