Watauga Habitat for Humanity

6th Annual Big Kahuna Campaign

Do your friends or place of business have what it takes to be crowned The Big Kahuna? Watauga County Habitat for Humanity is currently recruiting teams for their 2020 Annual Big Kahuna Campaign. A Kahuna Team is a group of four community- minded people who volunteer to help raise money for Watauga Habitat's affordable housing program. Teams solicit their network of personal and business contacts to donate to Watauga Habitat in their name.

In the past, participants have been local, individual movers and shakers. This year we are changing things up a bit and recruiting teams instead of individuals. This friendly competition kicks off March 2nd, 2020. At the conclusion of the contest, the results will be announced at a fun social event known as the Don Ho-Down on May 15th at Appalachian Mountain Brewery. At this event, the Kahuna Team raising the most money will be crowned the BIG KAHUNA.

Participation is limited and Watauga Habitat is currently looking for teams of four individuals. Look for some former Kahuna contestants teaming up to win the crown and new faces that will energize this highly-competitive contest. The Kahuna campaign will be limited to five teams and a maximum of four participants on each team.

In addition to bragging rights, the winning 2020 Kahuna Team will be featured for one year on Watauga Habitat's website, a dedicated article in Habitat's printed annual report and much more.

The Watauga Habitat staff and Board of Directors will be behind your team all the way, coaching and promoting you all the way! Since 2015, Watauga Habitat for Humanity's Kahuna Campaign has collectively raised over $200,000. Past winners include Linda K. Robinson of Premier Sotheby's Real Estate, Justin Davis of Town Tavern Blowing Rock, Jenny Miller, Community Volunteer, Crystal Smith of Appalachian Mountain Brewery and Ginny Morgan Walker of Mountain Times Publications.
