Falmouth Housing Trust held its annual Building Dreams in Falmouth Fundraising Reception on Thursday, October 28th at the Woods Hole Golf Club.

With a view of Quissett Harbor, guests enjoyed drinks and appetizers as they mingled and heard from President, Addie Drolette and Executive Director, Karen Bissonnette on current projects to increase the Town’s workforce housing opportunities. Martha’s Vineyard Bank was the major sponsor of the event and Luke Murphy, Managing Director of Martha’s Vineyard Bank Trust and Investment Services spoke about the Bank’s commitment to workforce housing efforts.

The evening included a silent auction and a live auction with Auctioneer Extraordinaire, Victoria Chapman. The evening was immensely successful, raising over $68,000, in supporting the Falmouth Housing Trust’s mission to enhance the community of Falmouth by developing and maintaining sustainable, affordable workforce housing.

Falmouth Housing Trust would like to thank our sponsors and contributors, as well as everyone who attended. Falmouth Housing Trust would not be successful without the support of our community.
