Get involved!! Help me renovate ASID's community service project the "Boys Hope House"

Well its that time of year again! ASID's community services project is in motion. I am so excited for this challenge and have had the pleasure of meeting these very smart young men and can't wait to surprise them with a new home makeover! As you know I was looking to raise money for this cause so that their home could be as comfortable and beautiful as possible. On May 14th I held a Poker Tournament Fundraiser that raised $6,800. Yeeeeehh.. Not bad for my first go at it. ;) Thank you all who participated! What a great night I am still getting calls on how much fun it was..

And now you will see the beginning stages of all your generosity. I am in the middle of planning the design for the Boys Hope House. The renovation starts June 17th and will last 10 days! Below is a schedule of the week I'll be at the home. Please contact me if you have any donations or would like to help! We need lots of hands. This house is about 6,000 square feet and at this time there is six boys and two house parents living there. If you are not available that week you can still get involved. I need help preparing and sourcing goods from now until we begin demo! So lets get started...

How did Poker Night do!

ASID’s Poker Night benefiting Boys Hope Girls Hope was a huge success! This unique event had people rolling in the spirit of giving. The night started out with an exciting poker tournament, while on lookers cheered and others tried their luck on the tables. The atmosphere was intimate yet elegant with a fabulous Jazz band led by singer Nichole Preuss. Towards the end of the night we finally had ourselves a poker winner Lydia Deets receiving a vacation at a beachfront Condo in Cabo San Lucas. While our very own Barbara Keller won the top raffle prize, a vacation at a ski cabin in Sun Valley Idaho! What a fantastic night filled with people coming together for an amazing cause! Overall the event raised a substantial amount of funds and now its time to gear up for the renovation of the Boy’s Hope House in July. If you would like to be apart of this years community services email stephanie@pluraldesign.com. We are looking for contactors, painters and anyone who wants to help out.
