The Twice Daily Playhouse Raffle to take place on Oct. 29 at Franklin’s Pumpkinfest
Williamson County CASA revealed the 2016 Twice Daily Playhouse on Tuesday, Sept. 6 at FirstBank’s Downtown Franklin post office branch. The custom playhouse will be given to one lucky winner at CASA’s fourth annual playhouse raffle on Saturday, Oct. 29, which is one of the organization’s largest annual fundraisers. All proceeds from raffle tickets help to provide children with safe and permanent homes.
“The thing that I love most about the playhouse fundraiser is that it is truly a community-wide event,” said Ondrea Johnson, director of development at Williamson County CASA. “So many people in Franklin get involved in this production and with an affordable ticket price, it’s accessible to anyone who wants to support the organization.”
This year’s 60-square-foot playhouse was custom built by Franklin Firefighters Charities and designed as a firehouse replica. The one-of-a-kind structure is fully insulated and includes lighting and hardwood laminate flooring. In addition, the playhouse is built with a ceiling height conducive to most adults. The interior is currently under construction and designed by a team from O’More College of Design to match the exterior look of the playhouse.
The playhouse will be displayed on East Main Street in Downtown Franklin through Saturday, Oct. 29. Raffle tickets are $20 and available for purchase at CASA, Puckett’s Grocery and the 2016 Pumpkinfest. Puckett’s is offering $10 raffle entries and will match the purchase price of each ticket sold. The raffle will take place at 5 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 29 at Pumpkinfest’s main stage off the square in Downtown Franklin. All proceeds from raffle ticket sales provide crucial funding to Williamson County CASA.
The Twice Daily Playhouse Raffle is sponsored by Puckett’s Family Restaurants, Twice Daily, Cameron Properties, Outdoor Classic Structures, Mid-State Title, Coyne Oral Surgery and Simmons Ridge.
