Parker Homes Presents: Extreme Playhouse Raffle for Operation Finally Home

Our company has teamed up with “Operation FINALLY HOME” to raise money for the non-profit organization through a raffle/giveaway of a custom made playhouse built by us. Operation FINALLY HOME is an award winning program created by bay area builders association to support our troops.  Operation finally home was established in 2005 as a non-partisan/non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. Operation finally home’s mission is to provide custom made mortgage free homes to wounded and disabled veterans and the widows of the fallen in an effort to get their lives back on track and become productive members of their communities.  Operation finally home partners with corporate sponsors, builder associations, builders, developers, individual contributors, and volunteers to help severely wounded heroes and their families’ transition from the battlefront to the home front and help them succeed in their challenging new world so they may ultimately enjoy a productive and rewarding life. This organization builds all over the U.S. and has even built right here in our wonderful town. 

We were approached by the coordinator of New Braunfels KidsFest, Tammy Wood, to come up with something that our company could share at the event. We had been in talks with Operation Finally Home for a while on ways to help out and thought this would make for a great opportunity to raise some funds for the organization. We will be building a custom playhouse to be raffled off at the event. 100 % of the proceeds go towards Operation Finally Home. Parker Homes & Renovations will not make any money off this project whatsoever. New Braunfels Kidsfest will take place on April 21-22 (Saturday-Sunday) at Rockin’ R in Gruene. Our plan is to stage a sort of “Extreme Playhouse Makeover” by building the actual playhouse there at Rockin’ R in Gruene over the 2 day event. We are selling raffle tickets now and will also sell them there at the event. The winner will be drawn and announced at NB Kidsfest on Sunday, April 22nd at 5:30 PM. You do not have to be present to win. If the winner is out of the New Braunfels area, they will be responsible for delivery of the playhouse.
