Legend Homes recently rolled out their Project Playhouse, an annual HomeAid Houston fundraiser, at Minute Maid Park during the Houston Astros games, that was engineered and built by Legend’s team. It is called Project Playhouse “Union Station” and offers kids a variety of amenities not often found in backyard playhouses.
The “Union Station” Playhouse features several first-class amenities, such as air conditioning, a television, a window seat, toy storage, a play table, a rock-climbing wall and slide, and a rooftop deck with a telescope. With COVID affecting attendance at the ballgames, the playhouse is being represented by posters and a video on the Astros’ Jumbotron. Tickets for a chance to win the playhouse are available at its location in Section 152 on the Concourse Level or online at homeaidhouston.org through August 20. Funds raised go to building shelters for the homeless within the community.
The Project Playhouse “Union Station” design is inspired by Minute Maid Park’s iconic Union Station that is reminiscent of the charm and classic look of an actual train station,” said James Miller, president of HomeAid Houston. “HomeAid can’t thank Legend Homes and their vendors and suppliers enough for making this happen with their donations. A huge thank you also goes out to the Astros Foundation for partnering with HomeAid on Project Playhouse for the past 15 years.”
The Playhouse winning ticket will be drawn on August 20th with the key presentation on the ball field on August 25th. This annual Project Playhouse fundraiser has raised over $1 million since its inception in 2006.
Companies contributing to the construction of “Union Station” are the Hall of Fame Sponsors, Tri-Tech – Engineering, Surveying and Planning, Rock Materials, LJA Engineering, EHRA Engineering, Excell Foundations, Legend Homes, Academy Development and Camillo Properties.
“Legend Homes is honored to have been selected as the builder for the 2021 Project Playhouse in conjunction with HomeAid Houston and the Astros Foundation,” said Legend Homes CEO Blake Roberts. “We’ve looked forward to the opportunity to work alongside both organizations to bring our love of homebuilding to this unique project that will positively impact the Houston community and the lives of Houston’s homeless.”
