Habitat for Humanity is dedicated to providing basic, well-built, affordable, owner-occupied homes for people in need – in a way that builds hope, dignity and independence, develops partnerships, and encourages community.Our University chapter works in cooperation with Habitat for Humanity of Chester County by serving low-income families regardless of race, gender, culture, or religion. This past Friday, Habitat for Humanity at West Chester University put on its second annual event, The Coffee House, and the affair went as smooth as the creamer in everyone’s coffee. Guitarist and WCU student Chris Weist along with his two friends started out the evening with a bang followed immediately by the guitarist for the band Waiting for December, Johnny Wood. Habitat member Tara Tanzos on guitar and pianist Dave Palermo were third on the set list, and after a few duet songs, the two were joined by Sarah Kemmerer and Kyle Pesce for a Ben Folds Five cover of “The Luckiest.” Local band, 20 Minute Tango, brought out a huge following with their popular covers and catchy originals. Lastly, Kyle Pesce took the stage again as drummer in the closing act and accompanied singer, pianist and Immaculata student Laura Fisher. The night was full of talent, passion and, of course, great coffee.
