The 2017 Make-A-Wish foundation in Evansville Indiana put together an amazing contest and fundraiser for the 2017 Parade of Homes Event, and I was super pumped about being a participant!
The Cottages for Kids program ask that local groups build a playhouse for kids which will be staged and displayed at Brookstone Subdivision in Newburgh IN and visitors will be able to buy tickets and deposit them in a bucket in front of their favorite cottage!
At the end of the Parade of Homes, a winner will be selected from each bucket and they will be the proud new owner of a backyard cottage, with all of the profits from the ticket sales staying with the local Make-A-Wish group.
Myself, and Aaron Luttrull, also with F.C. Tucker, along with TJ and Tammy Trem, the owners of Salvage Candy, have joined forces and put together a great little “Town Marshall” themed cottage!

While “Top Honors” this year for the best cottage went to the Scott Township Fire Department for their “Fire Station” themed playhouse, it is obvious that a great time was had by all, and the REAL WINNERS in an event like this are the kids who will benefit from all of the money raised by our local community to support such an awesome organization! Watch for next years Cottages for Kids Event during the Parade of Homes!
