Habitat for Humanity's annual fund-raiser auction of artist-restored furniture is tomorrow night, Sept. 29, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the Lafayette Square building at Louisiana and Sixth streets (523 Louisiana) and if you want to bid on some beautiful things for a beautiful purpose, clear off your calendar now and plan to go.

"Get Hammered!" is the theme of the 2nd annual Restore and After event, where Hammer-tini cocktails, beer, wine and heavy hors d'oeuvres will be served for a mere $25 ticket price. The Rodney Block Band will entertain.

Among the items to be auctioned are no fewer than four doghouses, all decorated by realtors with the Little Rock Realtor's Association, toy chests, chairs, hutches and more.

Here's how it worked: 14 artists purchased items from H for H's ReStore outlet in North Little Rock and turned them into works of art for auction. Last year's event raised $7,000, enough to build a room in a Habitat house. Go here to purchase tickets or call 379-1583.
