Everyone is welcome to tune in so, watch alongside those in your home and share this event with your friends, family, and neighbors. There is still no ticket price for the event and gifts of all sizes will be celebrated. You can register below as an individual, and we are still offering the opportunity to sign-up as a Table Captain with added features for the virtual event.

Watch Now

Anyone can become a Table Captain. Without actual tables, this year, a Table Captain’s main purpose will be to rally their networks behind Habitat. Each captain will still receive a unique registration link so that they can keep track of their family members and friends that have registered. The Table Captain who registers the most guests will win lunch with our CEO Corinne O’Connell on a date to be determined. 

Though we cannot gather physically, we are striving to make this the most viewed luncheon to date! Whether you can contribute $5 or $5,000, all gifts bring us closer to a city where everyone has a safe, warm and dry place to call home. Support the event today.

Keynote speaker and honored guest:
Dr. Stephen Klasko

Stephen K. Klasko, MD, MBA, is President of Thomas Jefferson University and CEO of Jefferson Health. A Distinguished Fellow of the World Economic Forum, he’s been an advocate for the transformation of healthcare delivery and of higher education.

Dr. Klasko has been dean of two medical colleges, the leader of four health enterprises, and a university president. He has transformed Jefferson since 2013, leading it from 3 hospitals to 14, and from 6 colleges to 10. He is also the author of Bless This Mess: A Picture Story of Healthcare in America (2018), We can Fix Healthcare (2017), and The Phantom Stethoscope (1999).

Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia and Dr. Klasko share a common belief: housing is medicine. Dr. Klasko’s innovative approach is focused on ensuring that the future of healthcare is more equitable, regardless of where someone lives.

The Healthy Communities Achievement Award, bestowed by Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia, is an honor reserved for those who demonstrate a steadfast commitment to improving the health of local communities through the lens of housing.

An individual’s health is directly tied to where they live, and awardees recognize housing as a health indicator and advocate for Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia’s vision of a city where everyone has a decent place to call home. Award winners have reached a level of distinction in their respective fields and work alongside Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia as a valued partner. Habitat is proud to honor Stephen K. Klasko, MD, MBA, President of Thomas Jefferson University and CEO of Jefferson Health with this award for the 11th annual Building Hope Luncheon and we look forward to hearing from Dr. Klasko on May 7.
