Operation HON - Heat on Now - Ice House Experience

The Fuel Fund of Maryland (FFM) will showcase Operation HON – Heat on Now – Ice House Experience fundraiser hosted by THE AVENUE at White Marsh, Friday, January11 – Sunday, January 13, 2019. Operation HON allows the public to visit a “home” and feel what it is like to not have heat or electricity during the cold winter months. All are encouraged to visit the ice house and donations collected during Operation HON will provide financial assistance for the thousands of Maryland households who are struggling to pay their home energy bills during times of financial crisis.

Operation HON ice house will be constructed by 60 – 300-pound ice blocks and designed by local ice sculptor, Casey Connor of Ice Lab. Each ice block will include sponsor logos. The ice house will be constructed on Friday, January 11 beginning at 7:30am and will be ready for the general public at 3pm. MIX 106.5 and Priestly will broadcast LIVE from 3pm – 7pm followed by a “Glow in the Dark” Skating park from 7pm – 10pm at THE AVENUE at White Marsh skating rink. Operation HON will also feature a visit from the Baltimore Orioles mascot and Baltimore Hons.

“Every winter and throughout the year, thousands of our central Maryland neighbors, veterans and seniors live with the difficult situation of having to go without heat or power in their homes,” said Jody Costa, Board President, Fuel Fund of Maryland. “They live down the block or right around the corner and now find themselves in a temporary financial crisis brought on by an illness, accident or job loss. In fact, it could be any of us,” she added. “At the Fuel Fund, our goal is to connect our neighbors with the financial and educational resources they need to keep their power on.”

“We are really excited to once again host Operation HON and highlight the amazing work that the Fuel Fund does in our community,” said Lisa Geiger, Marketing Director, THE AVENUE at White Marsh. “The ice house is a perfect fit for us combined with the skating rink and allows families to shop, dine, skate and, more importantly, donate when they visit,” she added.
