Gingerbread Junction Raises $5,000 for Newberry Habitat for Humanity

33 award winners in 11 categories were honored in a Gingerbread Junction award ceremony on Wednesday, December 10. Voting for all of the categories was conducted by a panel of community judges. There were a total of 65 gingerbread houses submitted this year.

“Sunriver Resort is proud to support Newbery Habitat for Humanity and its mission to provide affordable housing in our community” said Tom O’Shea, Managing Director of Sunriver Resort, “Gingerbread Junction, as part of our annual Traditions celebration, provides a great opportunity for the community at large to participate in supporting such a great organization.”

Mr. O’Shea presented the awards, along with a check to the Newberry Habitat team, at the awards ceremony in the Abbot Room at the Sunriver Resort Lodge, where the Gingerbread Junction homes will be on display until January 1, 2015.
