on Friday,July 23,2010 21:07
In Sacramento, an adult community builder and a marketing company have partnered to raise money for charity. Del Webb, a building company that creates communities for adults over the age of 55 years, and Studio 81 International, a marketing and graphic design firm, have built a child-size dream home to be raffled off for charity.
The playhouse is fully furnished by professional interior designers from Studio 81 and has real home furniture, such as a built-in bookcases, loft, custom woodwork, refrigerator and flat screen television. The design theme is Dinger's Den, which will revolve around baseball since Dinger is the mascot of the Sacramento River Cats.
"This project also presents a tremendous opportunity for employee volunteerism and camaraderie. We are pleased to provide our services and talents to such a great cause and organization," said Del Webb division president Chris Cady.
All raffle ticket proceeds will be donated to HomeAid Sacramento, the charitable arm of the North State Building Industry Association. The nonprofit seeks to build and maintain dignified housing where homeless families and individuals can rebuild their lives.
Before the raffle, the playhouse will be on display at Raley Field from mid-July to August.
