Silent Auction 2017

8th Annual Haiti Mission

Golf Tournament & Silent Auction

  April 24, 2017


Hello Friends:

Amazing!  We closed the sponsorship portion of the Silent Auction on Sunday and we have been overwhelmed with the generosity of our donors.  A group of my old Kappa Alpha Brothers decided to honor the memory of two of our brothers who passed away in 2015.  We have received a total of $72,750 in donations and pledges from our Sponsors for the 2017 Silent Auction.  Thanks to all who have participated thus far to make the event a success.

We have been inspired by the overwhelming support and have adjusted our goal from $90,000 to $97,500.  The extra $7,500 would allow us to have the match in place to build an extra two homes, (26 total) over the course of the next year and bring additional families out of their deplorable living conditions.  The damage from Hurricane Matthew has left many more families in need of a home.


Our 35 man work crew can hopefully look forward to another busy year ahead.  We still hope to complete home #100 the last week of April and begin celebrating in Haiti on our mission trip three days after the golf tournament and silent auction.


We are already off to a great start with auction items.  Many people have offered to support us again this year.  We hope to send out our first list of items no later than the second week of March.  We also will have a new and exciting auction bid platform which will allow for on line and phone bidding and will notify you when you have been out bid.  We hope this platform makes the auction more convenient for our bidders and also makes it easier for people wanting to participate that cannot make the event.


What do we need now? We need your prayers and an open heart to the possibility of donating or obtaining additional items for the auction. If you own a vacation home or condo and would like to donate a week or long weekend for the auction that would be fantastic. We would like to obtain spa and hotel packages, beauty products, designer hand bags, sunglasses, jewelry, art work, memorabilia, fishing or hunting trips, Chef meals, cookouts and gift certificates to restaurants and clothing stores.


We welcome any item with a minimum value of $25.00.  We want to thank you in advance for your consideration and support. We need many generous donors to make the auction a success. These homes immediately impact two and often three generations, as well as, construction workers, their families and the community businesses that supply our needs.  Please visit the HMI website at to see before and after pictures with stories.


Please contact David Fakier (985-804-3112) or Laura Fakier (985-860-4311) if you have any questions or would like to donate an item. Thanks again for your support and participation. Please Forward to Your Contacts.
