The Habitat Oakland Women Build Luncheon began six years ago with just 40 attendees. Attendance has grown exponentially and this year the organization hosted 240 people. Johnna Struck, Women Build Volunteer chair, welcomed the guests along with sponsor John North, CEO of Coldwell Banker Weir Manuel and the North Family Foundation. A keynote address was given by Dr. Teresa Bartlett, Senior Medical Officer, Sedgwick. The Welcome Home Luncheon serves as the official kickoff to the fundraising efforts for the year. The organization has a goal to raise $100,000 in 2019 and to grow their team to 100 women volunteers.
