HomeAid Houston and Ashton Woods have partnered with the Houston Astros and the Astros Foundation on the 12th annual Project Playhouse, a HomeAid fundraiser that raises funds for the agency’s mission, “to build new lives for homeless families and individuals through housing and community outreach.”
“The Playhouse was a unique opportunity to combine our love for design and homebuilding with an opportunity to give back. Our hope is that the School House of Inspiration lives up to its name and inspires everyone who works on it, sees it, and plays in it to believe in themselves and believe in the power of helping others.”Paul Sims, Division President, Ashton Woods
The playhouse, named the School House of Inspiration, was delivered by BMC to Minute Maid Park, its final destination before being raffled off. Fans can visit the playhouse behind Section 150 at the Astros games from June 18 to June 27. The drawing for the playhouse will be held on the June 27.
The playhouse design captures the charm and classic look of schools from earlier times that helped build memories for generations. It includes a school bell, a built-on swing set, operable windows, air conditioning, a flat screen TV and DVD combo, a chalk board and interior furnishings that inspire children of all ages to hang out and play for hours.
