THE STORY:

We're a family of four on a mission to create a solid financial future through homeownership. We have found our dream home and the only thing standing between us and it are closing costs and a few minor repairs. We are seeking monetary assistance from friends, family and do-gooders alike to help us close the gap.

Built in 1927, this historic property boasts 5 bedrooms, 2 baths and a partly finished basement. Solid brick, original wood floors, a sunroom, large eat-in kitchen and a huge yard are a few of the things that helped us fall in love with this home. This tutor-style home is located directly across from Don A. Hawkins Golf course and is a truly a carpenter's dream.

Our dream of homeownership is tied to our desire to provide our children a solid foundation that will serve them in years to come. The modest asking price is just right for our family's budget. With our knowledge and expertise in renovation, we have everything we will need to restore the property to its original glory and add our own flavor.

Our fundraising goal of $5000 will be enough to cover closing costs and help us with minor repairs upon closing. In conjunction with the online fundraiser, the seller has been gracious enough to allow us to hold a "Fun-Day Fund-Day" at the property. Come and join us for food, fun, and festivities. Activities will include:

  • Tour of the Home
  • Fun Activities for Children
  • Yard Sale
  • Bake Sale
  • Craft Vendors
  • Music
  • Dance Competition
  • Raffle Giveaways

We're so close to our dream we can taste it! We hope you'll help us close the gap!
