Home for the Holidays Raffle
The HBA of Greater Cleveland and Make-A-Wish to raffle a $599,000 custom home in North Royalton
(Cleveland) – Your chance to win A Home for the Holidays is back!
For the second year in a row, the Home Builders Association (HBA) of Greater Cleveland’s Charitable & Education Foundation, Make-A-Wish Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana (OKI) and NEWS 5, (WEWS TV) have teamed up to create an opportunity for some lucky person to win a $599,000 home in North Royalton, Ohio.
The 3,138 square foot modern farmhouse located in North Royalton has 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms and a 3-car garage. Tickets are $100 for a chance to win this custom home built by Mike Kandra of Edgewood Homes.
“We feel privileged to be able to do a project like this and be a part of something that will bring lots of joy to wish kids and their families. Being able to use what we know in our profession to make good things happen with an organization like Make-A-Wish is truly remarkable,” said Kandra.
The tickets go on sale July 20, 2021 after a ceremonial groundbreaking with North Royalton Mayor Larry Antoskiewicz. The goal is to sell 15,000 tickets by this Christmas.
Proceeds of the event will benefit Make-A-Wish, OKI and the HBA’s Charitable and Education Foundation (HBACEF). Make-A-Wish grants life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. The Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana Chapter has granted more than 17,500 wishes since it started in 1983.
“We’re thrilled to be partnering with the HBA’s Charitable & Education Foundation and News 5 again to make wishes come true for local children with critical illnesses. Proceeds from the 2020 A Home for the Holidays raffle allowed us to grant nearly 20 wishes for Northern Ohio kids,” said Make-A-Wish (OKI) President and CEO Stephanie McCormick.
One of the 20 wishes granted went to Philip, a four year old from Chagrin Falls battling leukemia. His wish, a playground set was delivered this month.
The HBA Home for the Holidays raffle kicked off last year and the winner, Debbie Rascan of Hinckley, Ohio was awarded the cash option. “With a bad back, I needed more help to care for my 90-year-old mom in home hospice and this was a dream come true,” she said.
Founded in 2012, the HBA’s Charitable and Education Foundation has provided scholarships for students entering the construction industry and community support on projects including the Greater Cleveland Fisher House, Special Veterans in Need, Homes for Our Troops, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, and Make-A-Wish.
