Housatonic Habitat for Humanity is excited to announce it is holding the organization’s first annual Blueprints and Blue Jeans fundraising event to celebrate its 30th anniversary on September 22 at the Lounsbury House in Ridgefield.

The fundraiser will celebrate 30 years of building homes, communities and hope in the Western Connecticut area. The event will be hosted by award-winning stand-up comedian Christine O’Leary. O'Leary is a self-professed “joy junkie” and local New Fairfield resident who has toured the country and worked with top comics. Live music will be provided by Jim Endee of the popular local duo Endee Bros.

The event will feature food from Bailey’s Backyard, a bourbon tasting with Litchfield Distillery, a wine pull, and live and silent auctions. Habitat is still seeking donations for both its silent and live auctions.
