Change Font Type based on cell value

I am trying to come up with some VBA code to change the font type of a cell (3 cells actually), based on the value of a cell on a separate spreadsheet.  

I've researched some of the past solutions to get a starting point, but I've gotten as far as I can on my own.  Here is the code I have so far... (see below)

It doesn't seem to like the section starting with "Sheets("Supporting Detail").Range("I46:I48").Cell.Font

Any thoughts???
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
If Sheets("Drop-Down Selections").Range("B124").Value = "HC" Then
Sheets("Supporting Detail").Range("I46:I48").Cell.Font
.Name = "Calibri"
.FontStyle = "Regular"
.Size = 8
.Superscript = False
Sheets("Supporting Detail").Range("I46:I48").Cell.Font
.Name = "Wingdings3"
.FontStyle = "Regular"
.Size = 9
.Superscript = False
End If
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub
