Habitat For Humanity Has Successful 1st Hybrid Event In Chattanooga

Tuesday, October 27, 2020

Habitat for Humanity announced its annual Raise the Roof fundraiser netted the non-profit $68,292.  The hybrid event provided lunches through its catering partner, Panera Bread.

The restaurant delivered 312 meals to 66 locations during the luncheon event.  Habitat noted that the success of this year’s event could not have happened without the Panera partnership. 

David Butler, president and CEO of Habitat said, “The Panera team embraced the idea of delivering lunches and coordinated the effort in ways we couldn’t imagine.  This event would be a ‘tall order’ for any caterer, but to add in delivery to so many in time for lunch, was nothing short of remarkable.  We are extremely grateful for the partnership and for their dedication to getting this effort done so efficiently.”

Panera Catering Manager Brandon Hale said, “Habitat is a very important part of our community and when we were approached to assist with Raise the Roof, there was no hesitation to support the effort.  We love the work they do and providing great fresh food to those who also support their efforts was an easy decision for us.”

Habitat officials also noted their thanks to the individuals that lead this year’s success. “When planning efforts began, we had no idea what to anticipate,” said Phil Trammell, vice president of Development for Habitat, “However, we received great encouragement from a very committed planning committee. We also had very strong leadership from First Horizon’s market president Jay Dale and his wife Cynthia who served as this year’s co-chairs.  We appreciate all of the efforts that led to this year’s success.”
