This playhouse was an idea of mine in August of last year. My brother-in-law has a child with an extremely rare disorder called Phelan-McDermid Syndrome or 22q 13 deletion ( http://www.22q13.org ). As far as we know she is the only child in Louisiana diagnosed with this disorder. Since he and his wife both work they don’t get much help from the government so Nicole and I decided to build this playhouse to raffle off and give them the money raised. Well one thing led to another and poof – a full fledged one day event was held in Henderson, LA which resulted in us raising over $50k. The playhouse, being first prize in the drawing resulted in over $15k alone!
