Seven playhouses are now at the Courthouse in Tifton ready to be raffled off to help abused children. The last was delivered Tuesday by the Tift County Sheriff's office with some help from the inmates. They were honored earlier in the day with a luncheon for their hard work and dedication on the log cabin style playhouse.

 "These are my right hand guys, anything I ask them to do they'll do," Sheriff Gary Vowell said. "They realized it was all for charity, hopefully they picked up a trade in the last week."

Most of the materials were donated by area merchants. The weathervane was donated by the sheriff himself. The playhouses will be raffled off Saturday night at 6 p.m. for $5. Proceeds benefit the child abuse advocacy group CASA.
