GLEN ELLYN – The Glen Ellyn Junior Woman’s Club and the Lukins McCollum Team are teaming up with two builders – Oakley Home Builders Inc. and Patrick J. Murphy Builders Inc. – to build two life-size children's playhouses that will be raffled off for charity.
Profits raised through Project Playhouse will benefit the Glen Ellyn Children’s Resource Center, DuPage PADS and other area charities, and they will be distributed by the Junior Woman’s Club, a service and philanthropic organization serving the community since 1948.
Organizers hope to raise at least $5,000 through Project Playhouse, which is in its flagship year.
"Every year the Lukins McCollum Team decides on the community events and charities we want to sponsor, and this year we hoped to do something a bit bigger in scale to thank and support the community that has been so good to us," broker Chris Lukins said in a news release. "I knew that the Glen Ellyn Juniors were looking for a new fundraiser this year, and since we are in the business of buying and selling homes, the playhouse idea seemed like a natural fit."
The playhouses will be on display Sept. 7 to Oct. 1 at Main Street Recreation Center, 501 Hill Ave., Glen Ellyn. The raffle drawing will take place at 2 p.m. Oct. 1 at the center.
Ticket holders need not be present at the drawing. Raffle tickets are $25 each or three for $65. They can be purchased online at projectplayhouseglenellyn.com or in person at The Bookstore, 475 Main St., Glen Ellyn; Papier Girl, 413 N. Main St., Glen Ellyn; and Glen Ellyn Sweet Shoppe, 500 Crescent Blvd., Glen Ellyn.
The playhouses will be delivered and installed locally.
