Braddy Family Groundbreaking

September 27 @ 10:00 am - 10:30 am

You’re invited to join us VIRTUALLY for the groundbreaking of Habitat for Humanity Peninsula and Greater Williamsburg’s home construction project for the Braddy family.

Tune in here on Facebook Tuesday, September 27, 2022 at 10 a.m. for a live stream from the event.

The home will be located in Newport News and is being built in partnership with the Braddy family and thanks to the sponsorship of the Annie Belle Reavis Tuccori Foundation.

The Annie Belle Reavis Tuccori Foundation honors the memory of a beloved Hampton Roads native, and supporting the causes that mattered to her most.

Annie Belle Reavis Tuccori was born in Norfolk and named after her grandmother. She lived most of her life in Newport News and Hampton. She was a 1942 graduate of Newport News High School where she enjoyed acting in plays. On the weekends, she would go with her father to the dances hosted at the country club (now The Woodlands Golf Course). Later in life, Annie was employed by the Newport News Shipbuilding and Drydock Company where she worked for 24 years. She was a member of Ivy Memorial Baptist Church where she said the Lord enriched her life with every lesson there.

She believed in Newport News. She witnessed all of the highs and lows that have taken place over the last several decades – the victories, the abundance, the strife, the storms, the growth. She recognized the tremendous potential of her city, and saw all of the people and organizations working tirelessly to make that potential a reality. Annie lived a life of prudence, having grown up through the Great Depression and upon her death chose to provide the community she loved with a generous gift to foster the continued change that made this city so special to her.

The event will be held rain or shine and last no more than 30 minutes.
