Home Builders helping kids

By Karen Cohilas - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Albany Home builder's association is breaking ground on a special new house.   It's not going to be sold through a realtor but a raffle.    

The association is partnering with the Lily Pad Sexual Assault Center and donating part of the proceeds to the non-profit. 

There's not much to show right now, but the house will be 2400 square feet, worth $250,000 and built in the newest subdivision in Lee County.

Andy Cooper said, "It's a great organization, what it does is very important to Southwest Georgia and throughout the country this is what's needed."

Tonia Jacobs said, "We are certainly grateful for the home builders association, all that they're doing and willingness to give and willingness to share with the Lily Pad and the children of this area."    

The first tickets for the house were sold Thursday.     They are $300.

You can get your ticket by calling the Home Builders Association at 436-9700, or call the Lily Pad at 435-0074.   The winner will be drawn June 10th.
