The Habitat for Humanity of Berks County’s Birdhouse Challenge is back, thanks to the efforts of the enthusiastic and energetic planning committee.

“We’ve decided to take the event outside” said event chair, Patrice Bentz.

The Birdhouse Challenge is scheduled for May 11th at FirstEnergy Stadium beginning at 5:30.

Willougby’s on Park will be catering the evening which includes a two-hour open bar.

The event will take place rain or shine, since FirstEnergy Stadium has plenty of covered open space.

“We feel people are tired of online events, and are ready to get out. An outdoor space will allow for better social distancing and we will make it a great, safe and fun evening out,” Bentz explained.

The Birdhouse Challenge features both traditional and wildly creative birdhouses from local artists, craftsmen, and first-time birdhouse builders.

Businesses and individuals throughout Berks County highlight their products, services, and talents using their interpretation of the birdhouse as their guide, or by being featured in the event’s silent auction which includes a variety of products and services.

Patrice is joined by the following committee members: Michele McCartney, Tina Hogue, Cheryl Takach, Brad Weisman and Susan Bear.

“We are thankful for the committee’s dedication to our premier fundraising event,” said Executive Director, Tim Daley.

“It was disappointing to cancel the 2020 event just a few days before it took place, but they didn’t let that curb their enthusiasm and they moved on to make this year’s event a great evening.”

Individuals interested in attending the event can register at the website, habitatberks.org.
