Habitat for Humanity is set to host its first-ever virtual Raise the Roof event on Wednesday, Sept. 30, at noon. The virtual event will feature cameo appearances by special celebrity guests, as well as a welcome message from Jonathan Reckford, president and CEO of Habitat International. Linda Brock of Real Estate Partners is the event’s presenting sponsor for the second year.
Ticket and table purchases will include a “Raise the Roof party pack” and lunch from Panera Bread delivered to each participant’s home or office.
Those who support with a ticket or table will be able to watch the event live as Habitat has partnered with WTCI to film and broadcast the event. WTCI will broadcast the program to a larger audience in the evening as well.
“Creating strong and stable communities is important now more than ever in these trying times,” said Phil Trammell, vice president of development for Habitat of Humanity of Greater Chattanooga. “We are living in unprecedented times, and because of that we are transforming this event to provide a first-rate virtual experience for our sponsors and participants. Through fundraisers like Raise the Roof, we are able to continue to help Chattanooga families build strength, stability and self-reliance.”
"Over the past 34 years, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Chattanooga has built 278 homes and repaired over 80 existing homes, providing more than 1,000 women, men and children with stability and the joy and security of Habitat homeownership," officials said. "Proceeds from Raise the Roof will go directly into funding Habitat for Humanity’s mission of building more decent and affordable homes for deserving families in Hamilton County. Last year’s event raised over $100,000."
