Building Hope Virtual Lunch-In

Tuesday, May 3, 2022, 12:00pm - 12:45pm


Thank you for joining us for the Building Hope Virtual Lunch-In. There is still time to donate.



The Building Hope Virtual Lunch-In is our signature annual event that celebrates community, highlights our work and our partnerships, and shares the success of families with whom we work alongside. Our annual virtual event allows us to continue to come together as a Habitat Family while still separated by the pandemic. 

The Building Hope Virtual Lunch-In’s ultimate goal is to raise $500,000 to assist Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia in furthering our impact and building housing stability, health stability, and human stability. There is no ticket price to attend the Building Hope Virtual Lunch-In, rather, Team Captains (formerly known as Table Captains) recruit friends, family, and colleagues to their virtual table. Not invited by a Team Captain? No problem! All are welcome to attend this event.
