For nearly two decades Hollywood for Habitat for Humanity has hosted two special annual build events with Habitat LA, Power Women, Power Tools® (PWPT) and The Hollywood Build. Typically, Habitat LA hosts a two-day in-person event in which entertainment industry executives build alongside talent, corporate executives, government officials, faith leaders, community stakeholders and Habitat LA partner homebuyers and homeowners to further Habitat LA’s vision of Building Better Futures. Due to recent in-person restrictions the events have gone virtual. Several notable female Hollywood personalities have attended both the PWPT and Hollywood Build event. A few notable Power Women who have attended the PWPT build in recent years include: Julie Ann Emery, Chandra Wilson, Maria Shriver, Catherine O'Hara, CCH Pounder, Kate Linder, Cookie Johnson, Tina Knowles-Lawson, Julie Bowen, Vanessa Bell Calloway, Camilla Bell, Kristina Guerrero, Paige Hemmis, Mya Harrison, Raven-Symone`, Kristi Castlin, Dawnn Lewis, Ashley Fink, Areva Martin and Kelly Rowland to name a few
