Women Build Update!

Women Build Pre-Celebration Sisterhood 2022

We celebrated an incredible evening with the Women Build Presenting Sponsor, AgeWave Solutions Inc, honoring all the Women Build participants, top fundraising teams and the highlight of the evening: inducting new members into the Sisterhood of the Pink Hard Hats!

This year, we had 66 Women Build participants who rallied their communities to raise over $70,000 to build a home and transform the lives of Sheena Tynes and her children. We’re celebrating our highest goal achieved through Women Build and the growing Sisterhood of the Pink Hard Hats, 15 new members were inducted into the Sisterhood!   



Top Fundraising Team:

Chicks with Sticks raised $18,073 and partnered with Habitat to secure material donations for the home!

Honorable Mentions:

  • Team Nailed It! was the first and only team to have every member inducted into the Sisterhood of the Pink Hard Hats!
  • 9 of the 11 Teams raised over $1,000! View the leadership board here!


Top Fundraiser:

Lisa Carter Harsh from Chicks with Sticks raised $9,012! A record-setting achievement.

Honorable Mentions:

Ruth Pizarro from Chicks with Sticks raised $5,052 and Laurie Bryant from the Hammer Knockers raised almost $3,000 and passed on the title of Top Fundraiser to Lisa Carter Harsh.

The effort of these incredible individuals is supported by our Presenting Sponsor, AgeWave Solutions, Inc and this year’s Hard Hat Sponsor, Sun Kool Air Conditioning.

This year, Women Build participants will be raising the walls for a new home in Eustis, Florida. Construction officially begins on Saturday, June 25th and Women Builders will be on-site for two weeks as we work together to build a home! 

The opportunity to own an affordable home can remove barriers that might have been part of a family’s life for years, if not generations. Thanks to Women Build, we can offer that opportunity for a family who needs it most.


Women Build empowers you to make a difference. Together, we can build homes, communities, and better futures for local families.
