Monte Hewett should know what it takes to build a spectacular children’s playhouse… His “FishCamp” entry into HomeAid Atlanta’s very first Project Playhouse charity event sold at auction for $36,000! This time around, Monte will be donating his time and expertise to help judge the fifth annual event. The fundraiser showcases child-sized dream homes by some of Atlanta’s top builders in support of HomeAid Atlanta’s efforts to provide transitional housing for Atlanta’s homeless families and individuals and is HomeAid’s biggest fundraiser of the year.
His inspiration for the FishCamp playhouse came from weekend fishing trips with his son. (It was recetnly featured in the 8/9/08 edition of the AJC along with it’s happy owners.) In addition to raising top funds, it also received the Imagination Award that year, recognizing it as the most creative among the entries. Monte Hewett Homes still serves as a sponsor of HomeAid Atlanta and its programs.
This year’s Project Playhouse™ will open on September 13, 2008, at the Playhouse Village located in valet parking at Lenox Square. The public may tour four extraordinary playhouses designed and built by some of Atlanta’s premier architects and home builders. The Village will be open on weekends from September 13 to October 4th. These playhouses will be fully furnished and decorated by professional interior designers and exhibit the utmost quality craftsmanship. They are amazing and something that ANY child would dream of having in their backyard. One house will be raffled off, while the others will be sold at a live auction. All proceeds support HomeAid Atlanta’s mission of building trasitional housing for the temporarily homeless. Monte Hewett is proud to be involved once again in an event close to Monte’s heart.
