HomeAid Houston and Ashton Woods are partnering on the 12th annual Project Playhouse, a HomeAid fundraiser that raises funds for the agency's mission, "to build new lives for homeless families and individuals through housing a community outreach".  HomeAid is a 501 c 3 charity of the Greater Houston Builders Association (GHBA).


The Ashton Woods team named the playhouse the School House of Inspiration.  The design captures the charm and classic look of schools from earlier times that helped build memories for generations.  It includes a school bell, a "swing set", operable windows, air conditioning, and interior furnishings that inspire children of all ages to hang out and play for hours. 


The Ashton Woods playhouse team includes, Paul Sims, Ashton Woods division president; Gregory Janik, area construction manager & Project Lead; George Sanchez, product development manager; Kendra Lewis marketing manager and Amy Ross, design studio manager represented  the Ashton Woods team. 


“I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of this fundraiser for HomeAid Houston," said Paul Sims, division president of Ashton Woods.  "It gives us a unique opportunity to combine our love for design and homebuilding with an opportunity to give back. Our team jumped at the opportunity to donate our time and skills to those who need it most. Our hope is that the School House of Inspiration by Ashton Woods lives up to its name and inspires everyone who works on it, sees it, and plays in it to believe in themselves and believe in the power of helping others.”


The Ashton Woods team will join HomeAid to display the School House of Inspiration, in partnership with the Houston Astros and the Astros Foundation at Minute Maid Park during the Astros games, from June 18 to June 27.  Fans will have an opportunity to win the playhouse in a drawing on the 27th.
