Thursday, July 11, 2019

This year’s HomeAid Houston playhouse was a hit, raising almost $94,000 for HomeAid Houston by selling raffle tickets to win the playhouse. The winner of Project Playhouse’s 2019 “The Toybox” was the Rangel family, shown in the photo. They are extremely excited to have won and look forward to enjoying this year’s amazing playhouse.

The playhouse was on display at Minute Maid Park on the Concourse Level, from June 26th – July 7th, when the raffle drawing was held. Satterfield & Pontikes and Newberry Architecture worked together to make this happen as the design and construction team that created and built the Toy Box Playhouse. Assisting in the move was Greco Structures, a playhouse donor who contributed to the construction and provided transportation to the ballpark.
