Updated: Oct 9, 2019

Rhapsody Board President Rocky Ford and Habitat Rabun Board President Dan McAfee were all smiles last night at the 2019 check presentation. Rhapsody in Rabun wrote a large check to their 2019--$60,000!

"Both boards, Rhapsody and Habitat, and a small army of volunteers worked tirelessly for months to put on this event, said McAfee, "They and all those who donated auction items, food, and drink should be thanked."

The funds raised this year are already in use as the 2019 Habitat home is close to being completed. Habitat Rabun celebrates its 30th year of making affordable housing possible in Rabun County this year. In those 30 years, its all-volunteer board has built 35 homes.

"Although Rhapsody is over for this year, our mission is not," he added, "To continue to provide decent, affordable housing in Rabun County, we need volunteers and financial support year-round."

Rhapsody in Rabun began in 1991 as a group of community volunteers came together to support local nonprofits with an elegant evening. Their first recipient was Rabun Habitat, and the event raised $10,000. Since that time, Rhapsody has raised over $1.3 million for Rabun County nonprofits.

"I have been with Habitat for a year and love providing a home to those that wouldn't have one without our help. I have watched in my own family and community situations that 'happen' like hospitalization, death, divorce, disabilities, and veterans returning home, all jeopardizing a safe home in which to live," said Barbara Anderson, Habitat Board Member. Anderson worked with the Rhapsody Board to create what many said was one of the best auctions ever. She added, "I consider it an honor to work with the Habitat Board and the Rhapsody team!"

Habitat Board Members celebrate a successful Rhapsody in Rabun Event.

"There is little that can make a greater impact on a family than helping them to achieve the dream of owning their own home," said McAfee, on why Habitat Rabun's work is so essential to the community.
