“We are honored and humbled to be recognized by Habitat LA as their 2023 Dream Builder,” said Drew Scott. “We are always excited to continue our work as Habitat Humanitarians in the greater Los Angeles area and beyond.”
Added Jonathan Scott, “It is truly thrilling and there is no better feeling than to see a Habitat family turn the key and open the door to their new forever home.”
This year’s gala theme, Rise Up, is an inspirational anthem that deeply connects to Habitat LA’s tireless work to realize the dream of homeownership among under-resourced communities across greater Los Angeles. This spirit is embodied in the dazzling talent of Grammy-winner, Andra Day, who serves as the featured performer at the 2023 Los Angeles Builders Ball. Day is a decorated singer, songwriter, and actress who won a Golden Globe award for her portrayal of the legendary Billie Holiday. She wrote her hit song, Rise Up, to encourage anyone facing adversity to push through.
“I’ve been blessed with so many opportunities to tell stories and connect with global communities through the connective bridge of music,” said Andra Day, “Now, I’m grateful to connect with Habitat LA, and bring the stirring ‘Rise Up’ spirit to their amazing annual celebration.”
