HopeBuilder Breakfast Cancelled
Due to the COVID-19 crisis, we have made the decision to cancel our annual HopeBuilder Breakfast. In light of Governor Brown’s phased approach for reopening our state for live events, we feel it is best to prioritize the health and safety of our community and cancel this event.. Our keynote speaker, Ann Curry, has graciously offered to speak at next year’s event on April 28, 2021.
The HopeBuilder Breakfast is critical for raising funds to support Habitat for Humanity’s work here in Portland. Without it, we have a funding gap of $250,000. Please consider making a gift to our Safety of Home campaign to ensure that everyone in our community has a safe and affordable place to call home. Rally your friends to support our work so that the construction of safe homes for 200 people can continue!
Should you have any questions, please contact Sarah Rothenfluch at firstname.lastname@example.org
