Door Prizes, Raffles and some Proceeds to Benefit the Prewitt Family
Jacksonville, FL (May 5, 2011)
Contractors, community volunteers and local fans of the recent ABC Extreme Makeover: Home Edition project in Middleburg are invited to attend a viewing party from 7 to 9 p.m. Sunday, May 8 at Buffalo’s Southwest Café, located at 6055 Youngerman Circle (just south of I-295 and Blanding Boulevard).
Buffalo’s Manager Chris Perrella says the restaurant will donate 10 percent of all sales during the viewing party to a 50/50 raffle at the end of the event – with half going to the winning guest and the other half donated to the family of Carrie Prewitt. The ABC Team selected Prewitt’s family as the recipient of a new home. Prewitt, a volleyball coach at Middleburg High School, became the legal guardian for one of her players, Ashley Brewer, along with Ashley’s two younger sisters Taylor and Gina, after the girls’ parents passed away two years ago.
Employees of Orange Park’s J.A. Long Design Builders, which was the co-builder on the project along with ARK Remodeling and Construction of Gainesville, plan to attend the event – along with many of the contractors and subcontractors who donated their time to the project.
Viewing party organizers Cindy Bosnyak and Carolyn Ward say they will also be giving away door prizes during the party, including autographed shirts, logo jackets and pictures donated by the stars of the ABC Program, and a limo ride for 10/dinner for 10 at Buffalo’s. Selected volunteers will also share their own “behind the scene moments” during commerical breaks.
“Some of the stories I’ve heard so far are extremely moving,” said Bosnyak. “There are many people who experienced once-in-a-lifetime moments while they volunteered to help on the project.”
Bosnyak has asked those who plan to attend the viewing party to RSVP to her email address at email@example.com by 5 p.m. Saturday, May 7 so Buffalo’s Café will be fully prepared for the event.
