How would you like a $600,000 house for one hundred dollars? That’s what the grand prize winner of the Norton Children’s Hospital Home & BMW Raffle will receive. And you don’t have to have a ticket to the Snow Ball to get in on the fun and fundraising. Read on.
It’s the over-the-top raffle that creates so much buzz at the Norton Children’s Hospital Snow Ball gala every year. Typically, the announcement of the winner draws gasps and gleeful shrieks during the dessert course at the downtown Marriot ballroom. Here’s why: For just one hundred dollars, participants get a chance to win a dream home in the picturesque Prospect community of Norton Commons. (First prize is also shriek-worthy: It’s a 2017 BMW 2 Series from BMW of Louisville.)
This year’s home is a 2,400 Italianate two-story located at 6119 Mistflower Circle and filled with wonderful details like 12-foot ceilings, arched doorways, marble countertops, stainless steel appliances and a second-floor loft with a kitchenette. And it’s completely turn-key. The interior has been custom-decorated by local interior designer Leslie Cotter Dorazil with luxurious transitional furnishings including upholstered headboards, hand-painted chests, reclaimed wood tables and local artwork. All you have to do is claim your prize and pack your suitcases.
