HomeAid Playhouse Arrives at Minute Maid Park
June 27, 2017

It's a "star spangled" event when it comes to HomeAid Houston's annual fundraiser, Project Playhouse.  Taylor Morrison/Darling Homes partnered with BMC to deliver the 2017 playhouse to Minute Maid Park where it is on display through July 19th on the concourse level behind section 150 during the Astros games.  The “All American Playhouse" was built by Taylor Morrison/Darling Homes in collaboration with industry supporters. HomeAid Houston is a 501 c 3 charity supported by the Greater Houston Builders Association.


“The All American Playhouse design is a tribute to America as it showcases the American flag and evokes a sense of Americana at its finest," said Salty Thomason, president of HomeAid Houston.  “This design is ideal for any backyard and is a child's dream come true."


HomeAid Houston is partnering with Taylor Morrison/Darling Homes, the Houston Astros and the Astros Foundation on this 11th annual fundraiser that raises funds to build transformational housing for Houston’s homeless men, women and children. 


Transportation of the All American Playhouse was donated for the 8th year by BMC and led by Bryan Baker with team members Randy Salinas, Juan Lopez and Jackson Tollenson.


On hand for the delivery and installation from Taylor Morrison/Darling Homes were Michael Pomerleau, Franklin Gonzalez, Sarah Starr, Daniel Cogan and Caroline Noel.  From Hollywood Hills Outdoor Solutions was Tim Kimberling.


The playhouse includes a variety of amenities such as an LED TV, an electronic game console, air conditioning and whimsical furnishings provided by professional interior designers that are perfect for both girls and boys. 


Over the past 11 years, HomeAid's Project Playhouse has delighted children and adults with a variety of theme designs that include a country cottage, a castle, a spaceship, a train, a popular video game, a baseball dugout and a replica of Minute Maid Park.
