    I got so sick of the Canadian cold, I moved down to Charlotte just to avoid the snow. And of course to join the My Fox Carolinas family as a Digital Journalist. I grew up in Calgary (think the Houston of Canada) and after graduating from Carleton University with a Bachelor of Journalism, I moved to Toronto to cover sports; which in Canada means hockey.

    If you only had 36 hours to spend in the Queen City, what would you do? Where would you eat? What would you want to see? That is the idea behind the New York Times '36 Hours' feature.

Mooresville, NC - Amy Huddle believes everyone should know what home feels like. That’s why she’s spent years of her life helping build them. 

She started volunteering with Habitat for Humanity when she was 16. Her father spent every Saturday on the jobsite, and as soon as she was old enough she joined him.

Huddle is now the Marketing Specialist for Our Towns Habitat for Humanity. She is working with the Moorseville ‘ReStore’ on their 4th annual 'ReStore Restyle Design Challenge'. The contest features eight local designers who are charged with decorating a room using only things found in the two local ReStores.

Huddle says, "They’ve had to take their items home to recover, refinish, repaint, repurpose, whatever it is that they want to do to those items in order to create a room."

The designers were given two weeks to create their masterpieces, and on Thursday evening a winner will be decided. 

The judging event takes place Thursday at 6:30 pm at the Mooresville ReStore. Tickets are $25 in advance and $35 at the door. The night will include drinks and food, and people who attend will have the opportunity to buy the unique pieces created by the designers.

For more information or to purchase tickets you can visit their website at http://www.ourtownsrestore.org/
