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!

That is a really sharp looking playhouse and the story along with it makes it that much more important.

How neat! What a great story and a very neat playhouse. Sounds like there are some very loved children Louisiana.
