Some of Minnesota's top brass donned hard hats and work boots Monday during a Habitat for Humanity event in Woodbury.

The 11th annual CEO Build Day was held at Woodbury's Garden Gate Development. Homebuyers pounded nails alongside company executives from businesses including Cargill, the city of Woodbury, HealthEast, the Minnesota Chamber of Commerce, The Opus Group, Wells Fargo and Xcel Energy.

Speakers at the event included Koji Aku, a mother of two who will be moving into the development.

"We are very happy," she told the assembled group of executives and Habitat officials. "I really appreciate Habitat for Humanity."
