Donald Driver Featured Guest at 2014 Hard Hats & Heels Fundraising Event

Green Bay’s all-time leading receiver, “Dancing with the Stars” champion, New York Times bestselling author and 2013 AMVETS Humanitarian of the Year Donald Driver, along with Greater Green Bay and Greater Fox Cities Area Habitat for Humanity affiliates are collaborating to co-host the 2014 Hard Hats & Heels fundraiser. Driver will be the featured guest speaker at the event which is designed to raise funds to help build affordable housing for deserving families. The event will be held at 5:30 p.m. on Friday, November 14 in the Lambeau Field Atrium.   

“There is nothing more frightening for a family than to be homeless,” said Driver. “I know what that feels like.  I also know what it means for someone to give you a chance and to take that chance and succeed.  This is a great event with an incredible mission and one that I’m proud to be a part of.”

U.S. Census data shows that more than 10 percent of the residents of Northeast Wisconsin live below the poverty line, translating into thousands of families struggling to afford housing.
