2019 Building Hope Luncheon

Featuring a conversation with Dawn Staley

With roots in our North Philadelphia community, Staley is recognized for her body of work as one of the most decorated participants in U.S. women’s basketball history. A three-time Olympic gold medalist and five-time WNBA all star, Staley is currently the University of South Carolina Women’s Basketball Head Coach.

Prior to her position at the University of South Carolina, Staley led the Temple Women’s Basketball team to six NCAA tournament appearances for the 2000 to 2008 seasons. This April, she returns to Philadelphia to take the Building Hope Luncheon stage for a conversation on her connection to our community and her wildly successful basketball career.

Diamond Street from 23rd to 25th is now Dawn Staley Lane, honoring the neighborhood where she grew up and became one of the greatest women’s basketball players the world has seen. Dawn Staley Lane is part of Habitat’s community too – just a few short blocks from our 21 homes at Diamond Park. We are honored to engage a local legend, and we hope you will join us to Build Hope.

The Q+A with Dawn Staley will be moderated by CBS 3’s Pat Gallen.
