2015 General Hospital Fan Build Day Set For April 18


Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles (Habitat LA) has announced the 6th Annual General Hospital Fan Build Day, set to take place on a Habitat LA build site on April 18 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. This annual build day gives fans of the classic ABC drama the chance to mingle and collaborate with their favorite General Hospital actors as they help to build Habitat LA homes. An added benefit that the fans and actors look forward to year after year, is getting to work alongside a hardworking, low-income partner family or individual.

Due to the popularity of this event, build spots fill very up quickly. This year, there will be 20 build spots available. Fans can now register for the build event and are encouraged to do so as soon as possible.

Registration for the General Hospital Fan Build is a donation of $275, which covers breakfast, lunch and a commemorative t-shirt. Fans who wish to contribute more than the minimum donation of $275 will have a chance to win special prizes.

General Hospital cast members Lisa LoCicero (Olivia Falconeri) and Dominic Zamprogna (Dante Falconeri) are co-hosting this year’s build event. More cast members plan to join them and attendance will be confirmed closer to the build day.

Habitat LA partner homeowners are hardworking, low-income individuals and families who are simply in need of a hand up, not a hand out. Partner homeowners agree to pay back a zero-interest mortgage and contribute 200-500 hours of sweat equity volunteering with Habitat LA. Many of our partner homeowners serve greater Los Angeles as teachers, healthcare workers, government employees and members of the small business community.

Register here.
