Last week in Rice Hope Plantation, Village Park Homes reached another milestone in our 2019 Savannah St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway Campaign, the Floor Signing. All profits from this Dream Home Giveaway raffle contest go directly to the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The turnout for this event was a full-blown success; team leaders and members of our industry partners, volunteers, and their supportive family members surrounded us.
After gathering in the soon to be finalized Living Room, chatting over pizza and drinks, we began our series of speeches with Richard Schwartz, the President and COO of Village Park Homes. Schwartz reminded us of the meaning of our mission and, at the core, why we are all choosing to build a home for a cause where the mission is to treat and defeat pediatric cancer. Along with thanking our donors, he expressed gratitude for his VPH team.
The follow-up speeches were given by Paul Lerner of Bald Eagle Partners who donated the homesite, Matt Harden our Construction Manager, Garret Fricks a Shaw Flooring Representative, and Kristin Langona with St. Jude.
Matt Harden, our construction manager, reminded us all that in the 1950s, the survival rate for patients at St. Jude suffering from childhood cancer was 20 percent and today is over 80 percent. Our National Sponsor, Shaw Flooring, had their regional representative speak about why they choose to be involved in this charity every year, a heartfelt moment as the speaker mentioned his wife’s career as a pediatric oncologist. The gravity of this campaign weighed heavier on us all as the day progressed.
During every St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway Floor Signing event, all donors and volunteers ‘christen’ the home with signatures on the cement slab that will soon be covered with flooring, writing notes of best wishes to the future Dream Home winner.
It is our hope that this 4 Bedroom, 4.5 Bathroom, 3800+ sq. ft. home will be given to a deserving winner! All of our participants in this campaign know the meaning and impact we have on changing the lives of children. Our mission is to raise $675,000 to give directly to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and after selling out on our 2018 Dream Home Campaign in Richmond Hill, GA we are hoping to have the same amount of support and turnout this year in Port Wentworth, Georgia.
Leslie Ehlers, our Marketing Director, spoke to Ben Senger at WSAV3 about all of the interior design work that will soon be installed in the Dream Home.
