"(Families) should attend to get out, have a good time, and support a cause for a family that will be able to have an affordable home with a very low mortgage that they will be able to live in and feel safe and secure," Cheryl Mosley, a committed member of Women Build said.
Alongside Mosley, Kim Maddox and Susan Morris are a part of Women Build.
The festival will be at The Mill on Etowah, 255 Reformation Parkway, Canton.
Women Build is an initiative that seeks to empower women to positively impact the lives of families in their communities.
Through this "Celebrate Community" event, Women Build is raising funds to build a home in partnership with Terri, a young woman with three small children, who works as an instrument technician at a local hospital.
