General Hospital Fan Build Days originated in 2009 with Brandon Barash and Lisa LoCicero, who created the event as a way to reward loyal fans of the show, while becoming more involved with Habitat for Humanity.  Cast members and fans enjoy a day of building a home and raising awareness for affordable housing.

“To be able to support Habitat LA in this way is such a gift,” said Lisa LoCicero.  “There is such a need for decent, affordable housing, especially in Los Angeles, and I am honored to be able to help in some small way. I may be sore for days after, but I have a great time doing it!  I can’t thank our fans enough for supporting this event for so many years!”

Dom Zamprogna added, “It’s so special to build with Habitat LA alongside the families who are working so hard to become homeowners. I feel blessed to be a part of this and I am so grateful to share this experience with our amazing fans, who give so generously to support this build event and Habitat’s mission.”

This build site is part of Habitat LA’s Building a Greater Los Angeles campaign with a goal to invest $100 million by 2020 into revitalizing neighborhoods and increasing access to affordable homeownership opportunities. This investment will also help strengthen the local economy, creating healthier and more affordable homes for low-income families and individuals.
