Finally, a chance to win a miniature version of Minute Maid Park
One lucky Houston fan is going to win the ultimate spot for watching future Astros games. Modeled after Minute Maid Park, the 2012 Project Playhouse includes air conditioning, a 32-inch flat-screen TV, an Xbox 360 with Kinect, a model train, mini refrigerator and an iPod.
Fans interested in putting this playhouse in their backyard can buy raffle tickets from HomeAid Houston, a charity sponsored by the Greater Houston Builders Association (GHBA). According to its website, HomeAid partners homeless care providers with GHBA builders, vendors and suppliers who can help build transitional homeless shelters.
"All donations are going to come back to HomeAid Houston," said HomeAid's Samantha Knowles. "It will go back to help build and do renovations for different homeless shelters throughout the greater Houston area. HomeAid has been around since 2003, so they have been able to help many people."
Fans can check out the Playhouse at home games until Aug. 19, when the raffle will occur.
