Lakes Region Builder Members have been a part of the Children's Auction for many years!
LRBRA donated over $1,600 worth of building items for this year's auction! In 2013, members built and sold a 3,000 SF home and donated all of the proceeds - $90,129.11 to the auction!
Thank You Lakes Region Builder volunteers who helped with setting up the auction set, manning the phone banks and breakdown of the set. This year's total: $583,752!!!
LRBRA member, Jason Briand, of Lakes Region Epoxy Floors, has generously donated a standard epoxy flake floor system that can be used for a residential garage basement or small business up to 1000 square feet for a fundraising raffle.
All proceeds will be donated to the Tapply-Thomason Community Center (TTCC) for building projects - which serves recreational activities in the Newfound Area. Only 100 tickets will be sold at $250 each.
Sales will begin 12/15 and continue until all tickets are sold or April 1st – whichever comes first. To purchase a ticket and help the TTCC check out the website at / 744-2713 /
