Habitat for Humanity of Goldsboro-Wayne County is planning a pancake breakfast and a girls' night out event to raise funds to build homes for deserving families.

The non-profit organization will hold a pancake breakfast this Saturday from 7-10 a.m. at the Applebee's restaurant on Spence Avenue in Goldsboro. Tickets are $7 and can be purchased at the Habitat for Humanity office at 131 E. Walnut St. in downtown Goldsboro. Tickets will also be available at the door the morning of the sale.

The group will also hold a "Girls' Night Out" from 6:30-9 p.m. Nov. 4 at the Steak Barn restaurant to raise money. The evening will offer massages, a fashion show, beauty treatments, jewelry, food and more.

The Steak Barn is located at 1324 West Grantham Street near U.S. 70. Tickets for the event are $5 per person and may be purchased at the Habitat for Humanity office, the Habitat ReStore and will also be available at the door the night of the event. The evening is sponsored by Dream-Makers, Adams Roadside Barbecue, the Steak Barn, J.L. Eden, Pet Supplies Plus, Maurices, Flowers For You, Hair Fetish, Slipada Designs and AccuCopy.

Habitat for Humanity held a groundbreaking Tuesday in Goldsboro for a "faith-build" home sponsored by several area churches, and will hand over the keys to a brand-new home Thursday to a Mount Olive family. The organization has completed 40 homes in Wayne County since it was founded by Bill and Jan Edgerton in 2001.
