HomeAid Houston Hits a Home Run with Bridgeland Project Playhouse Visit
HomeAid Houston scored with the 2010 Project Playhouse visit to Bridgeland recently, meeting its goal of raffle ticket sales to raise money for the homeless. “The Vintage Astros Dugout” was on view in Bridgeland July 10, where people could purchase $5 raffle tickets to win the playhouse, built in honor of the Astro’s 45th year as a ball club. The playhouse is the perfect getaway for the young baseball fan, with bench seating from the Astros dugout in Minute Maid Park (complete with cleat marks), a wall-mounted 32-inch HDTV, a Nintendo Wii, a DVD player and an 8,000 BTU air conditioner with remote control.
Project Playhouse is a major fund-raising event for HomeAid Houston, which works to provide shelter for the homeless in the greater Houston area and to build dignified housing where homeless families and individuals can rebuild their lives. Bridgeland is a lead sponsor of this year’s project. For more information on Project Playhouse, visit the HomeAid Houston website at http://www.homeaidhouston.org/index.html.
International Art Phenom Tracy Lee Stum to Create 3-D Masterpiece in Million-Dollar Riverstone Home
The art of internationally acclaimed Tracy Lee Stum transports visitors to a world where trains and sharks lunge into the sky and tigers float above the ground on towering totems. In early October, this world of grand illusion arrives in Riverstone.
Considered one of the world’s foremost street artists, Stum will create a new 3-D masterpiece in a newly completed million-dollar Sterling Classic custom home in Riverstone, a Johnson Development master-planned community in Fort Bend County. Stum’s work will launch a two-week showcase of the home, with visitors able to watch the artist create her illusion from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Oct. 6-8. Those not able to see the artist in person can still view the artwork as the showcase continues from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Oct. 9-17. Tickets for both time periods are $5 each, with proceeds benefiting various charities. Visitors will have the opportunity to pose with and take pictures of Stum’s Riverstone waterfall creation.
