More than 230 people gathered Saturday night for a celebratory evening in support of a good cause.

The 14th annual Habitat for Humanity Ball was held Feb. 11 at the Blue Ribbon Circle.

Each year, proceeds from the benefit are used to build one local Habitat home.

"This is a project that's near and dear to my heart," said Kay Adcock, co-chair of the Habitat Ball. "To see the difference a Habitat home can make in a person's life is what motivates our committee, sponsors and supporters to help make a home a reality for a deserving family each year."

Fun night

In addition to an elegant dinner prepared by local caterer Joe McCurry, attendees of the ball were entertained by exciting silent and live auctions; live music by local band Four on the Floor kept the dance floor filled up throughout the evening.

The night was highlighted by the testimony of Julius Smythe, 20, a recent graduate of the Tennessee Technology Center.

Smythe, whose mother benefitted from a Habitat Home several years ago, shared how the gift from Habitat greatly and positively impacted his life.
