Late last year, I was sitting in my office and took a phone call from City Council member Steve Salvatori. He told me I was on a conference call with a couple of other council members and their staff. They were meeting to discuss the potential of creating a fundraising event to help offset budget cuts at the City’s community centers. The Executive Director of the West Central Community Center, Kim Ferraro, had seen a fundraiser in Montana where playhouses were auctioned off to benefit a local charity. They asked me if I thought our members would be willing to help with a similar effort in Spokane. I cautiously said I was sure we could help in some way but warned them I could not guarantee a number of playhouses until I reached out to our builders. From past experience I knew how much time and cost goes into the construction of a playhouse. Of course, when I began contacting our leadership I was pleasantly surprised by the positive response. Our current President, Deacon Band, stepped up and was joined by Past Presidents, Phil Folyer and Tim Ayers and our Vice President, Jason Lawrence in committing to build playhouses.

From there, the momentum continued and we ended up with a total of 12 uniquely designed playhouses that were featured at the Premier Home Improvement Show and were all successfully sold as part of a fun auction that generated over $30,000 for programs that benefit at-risk youth in our community. There was great publicity for this event in the community, that included recognition for the builders, but I wanted to personally thank everyone who responded to my request. You will see from the following list that most of the builders received significant support from their suppliers and subcontractors in constructing their playhouses. I also want to thank those who stepped forward to purchase the playhouses and to Ziggy’s, FMI Sales, Avista, ProSource and Hytopz for helping to deliver the playhouses to their final destination. It was a difficult task and we could not have done it without their support. At the end of this experience I have reaffirmed my belief in our members and could not be more proud to represent this great industry. These individuals proved to me that we truly are focused on our core purpose of Promoting, Protecting and Supporting our industry and our local community. Thank you,
We also want to show our appreciation to the SHBA Members who supported these Builders:
