Event in Luxury Home Raises Funds for Cancer Research
Grand Rapids, Mich. (Oct. 2, 2012) – Scott Christopher Homes, along with the design team of Visbeen Associates and Jeffery Roberts, will host the 1st annual Building Hope event on Wednesday, October 3, 2012 to raise funds for cancer and neurodegenerative disease at Van Andel Institute (VAI).
The event provides attendees with an exclusive preview of a stunning 7,000-square-foot waterfront home in the Rockford area. The 4 bedroom, 3 ½ bathroom home, which will be featured in the Fall Parade of Homes, includes a dog wash and boarding room, heated driveway, screened-in porch with a fireplace and retractable screens, elevated library, pool with "swim out" platform and infinity hot tub, among other distinct attributes.
Director of Operations for Scott Christopher Homes, Matt Reinsma, says the event is unique because, "it gives the public an opportunity to experience a highly exclusive home while also contributing to a great cause." The company is typically known for constructing homes in the $1 million dollar plus range, but is also dedicated to giving back to the local community. Reinsma says they chose to support VAI specifically because, "there was a desire to do anything we could to support research that will lead to a cure of the most debilitating diseases." The event hosts aim to raise a total of $40,000 for disease research at VAI.
A limited number of tickets for the event are still available and can be purchased at www.vai.org Attire is cottage casual chic, and attendees will enjoy a strolling dinner, cocktails and live entertainment.
