Fastest Hammer Fundraiser

Hammer Fast. Raise Money. Challenge Your Friends. Have Fun!

During Women Build 2018 Habitat Goldsboro-Wayne held its first ever Fastest Hammer Competition. The winning time for five nails, turned in by Mount Olive Area Chamber of Commerce President Julie Beck, was 50 seconds. Since then, Curtis Media radio personality Averil Williams has done five nails in 33 seconds and 10 in 1:09.

Want to try to top those times? Want to challenge a friend?

Then get your family and friends to back you and raise the $150 entry fee. Let us know what day you want to come out and then take your swings! And if you want to stay to help us build afterward, all the better!*


*Volunteer shifts are usually Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday, 8-11:30 & 12-3:30, but we can be flexible. Volunteering is not mandatory in order to participate in the contest but it is appreciated! You can learn about volunteering here.
