Leaders Build Coverage

On Friday, May 17, 2024, Habitat for Humanity of Orange County enlisted Orange County business and community leaders to support the 15th annual Leaders Build Challenge at Behr Paints Headquarters in Santa Ana. This year’s event competition constructed the framing walls for THREE of our SIX new home builds that will be erected on West Washington Avenue in Santa Ana (groundbreaking is scheduled for July 27, 2024). 


The event raised more than $125,000 with help from event sponsors to make home ownership more affordable in Orange County. The $125,000 raised covers the costs of the foundations for the six new homes on West Washington Street in Santa Ana.


Event Sponsors included: Team Captains: Parker Aerospace; First Citizens Bank, and Antis Roofing and Waterproofing; Foundation Sponsors: Eaton and John R. & M. Margrite Davis Foundation; Hammer Sponsors: American Business Bank, Cannon Design, City National Bank, CoreLogic, First Bank, Farmers & Merchant Bank, Hirsch Pipe & Supply, Halbert Hargrove, and Joann and Ken Lickel. Event hosted at: Behr Paint Company. 


Leaders Build Challenge Background: The one-day Leaders Build Challenge event is all about competition. Local leaders were split into three teams in a head-to-head competition. During the first event the teams were tasked with helping to build the framing walls for three of six new home builds. Their work was judged and scored based on productivity, expertise, plus their team spirit in finishing the tasks. The second portion of the event included a series of games where the Habitat OC team tested the competitors’ nail driving skills; their ability to hit a bullseye with a rubber hatchet; and building a home constructed using PVC pipe. Team Antis Roofing and Waterproofing won the Leaders Build Challenge Trophy and bragging rights for a full year! We’ve already set our date for next year – MAY 2, 2025!  Contact CorporateRelations@HabitatOC.org to find out how you can sponsor and get involved!
