The business community will join local leaders in mid-November to build the latest affordable house for Habitat for Humanity in Fullerton.
In a nod to the pandemic and safety protocols, the 12th annual Leaders Build Challenge will take place over two days Nov. 12-13, instead of one.
The money raised during this year’s event will support construction on more homes for families in the area.
The competition taps into professional networks to help raise funds for Habitat OC, plus participants get to skip work to make a difference.
“The Leaders Build Challenge is a fantastic event that brings together the most competitive business and community leaders in Orange County to benefit hardworking families,” said Chris Baiocchi, Habitat OC senior vice president in a statement. “It’s a day of hard work for a great cause.”
The project is divided into teams of executives who compete for first place by raising money for Habitat for Humanity online leading up to the challenge. The competition finishes with a day of hands-on work and construction-themed games where teams can score points.
This year’s event will comply with COVID-19 regulations and participants will be provided with personal protective equipment.
