Granville Homes has taken the wraps off of the well-appointed 1,900 square-foot new home it will raffle off in September as part of its annual Granville Home of Hope charity fundraiser.
The newly completed home was revealed in an online video Friday morning on Granville Homes’ Facebook page.
Raffle tickets are being sold for $100 with proceeds going to 10 local nonprofits providing food, shelter, health care, and education for those in need.
Nearly $6 Million Raised for Local Charities
The Home of Hope fundraiser has generated more than $5.8 million in support for community-based organizations since 2006, said Granville spokesperson Veronique Parker. The goal this year is to raise $800,000 through the sale of 8,000 tickets. One hundred percent of the proceeds benefit the selected charities, Parker said.
