Power Women Power Tools

Power Women Power Tools (PWPT) is an annual invitation‐only, all‐women build event hosted by Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles and is a part of our Hollywood for Habitat for Humanity program. Women from all walks of life come together during this special build event to build homes for families and individuals in need of decent, sustainable and affordable housing.  Many of the volunteers at PWPT are corporate executives from Fortune 500 companies, faith community leaders and elected officials, production companies, and the music industry, as well as the cast and crew of several TV shows and feature films. Every year the event attracts women who join together to make a difference building homes and leave feeling inspired and empowered. If you are interested in a sponsorship opportunity at this high profile event, please reach out to Jennifer Wise at jwise@habitatla.org. Check out pictures from our 2013 PWPT build here! The 2014 PWPT build is scheduled for Saturday, June 21.

Dawn to Dusk Golf Marathon

Golfers compete in a golf adventure with a humanitarian twist in the Dawn to Dusk (D2D) Golf Marathon. In the first three years, D2D raised nearly $300,000 funding the building of two homes. HFH GLA golfers tee-off at dawn and play as many holes as possible before dark. There is no cost to participate but each player is asked to raise pledges from their own contacts. It is always a great day with an abundance of food, drink, chair massages and prizes. There are prizes for the players that raise the most money, play the most holes, and more. Each player receives a gift bag and is automatically entered in a drawing. Check back to see details for the next D2D Golf Marathon.

Art/House

Art/House is a fine art event and silent art auction. World-renowned artists and rising art stars contribute their finest work to Art/House. Auction bids start at a fraction of the actual value, so guests can easily acquire highly desirable works of art, and at the same time support the important work of Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles. Guests enjoy fine food, cocktails and music. Also, many of the participating artists attend, giving guests the rare opportunity to meet some of today’s most exciting artists, all in one fabulous, fun evening!
