Women Build, a Lawrence Habitat for Humanity organization, is hosting a luncheon from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday at Maceli’s, 1031 N.H.

The Women Build Luncheon is a chance for community members to support Women Build’s effort to build a house for family partner Kamari Logan and her daughters. The event will feature a live auction where guests can bid on materials needed to build the house, as well as a silent auction of pink hard hats filled with wares from local businesses.

Marilyn Dobski, a co-owner of area McDonald’s restaurants, will be presented with a new award that honors a woman who has served as a role model and mentor to women in Lawrence.

The luncheon is $40 and open to the public, but guests must pre-register for the event by calling 832-0777.

On Thursday night, community members can support Women Build during Downtown Lawrence Inc.’s annual Girls’ Night Downtown. Participants will receive a 20 percent discount at more than 20 stores and restaurants from 5 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

To register, visit http://bit.ly/RQmT6L. Tickets are $20, or $10 for students. Guests may pick up their tickets in front of Weaver’s Department Store, 901 Mass., the night of the event.

Habitat for Humanity has continued to support affordable housing, a rising need, while others in government walk away from supporting the true workers for the few who believe those same people deserve no help. Those lazy people only good for slave labor. That 47% that our conservative government believes are not good enough to waste money on. Why if we take care of the hard workers, we don't provide decent pay and decent benefits too, we might not be able to open another offshore account to avoid paying taxes or buy another house. Thank you IHfH for continuing to support the hard working class, and to those who donate not only money, but time and hugs.
