Puckett’s Gro. & Restaurant and Puckett’s Boat House in downtown Franklin will be selling raffle tickets to win the Williamson County Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA)’s 2019 Playhouse. This nonprofit organization provides volunteers to advocate in court on behalf of children who have been abused and neglected, and all proceeds from ticket sales will directly benefit CASA’s mission.
This year’s playhouse is designed by Darla Spears with ‘Defined, by Darla’ and is currently being constructed by Franklin Firefighters’ Charities. The 60 sq. ft. space is valued at $6,000, and the winner will be able to partially customize the interior (up to $1,500) to create a space that is best for his or her needs. Design options could include a luxurious dog house, a child’s playhouse, a she-shed, a man cave or a potting shed.
Through Oct. 18, diners can purchase a raffle ticket for just $10 from either restaurant to be entered in the drawing to win the playhouse. Tickets are normally sold for $20, but A. Marshall Hospitality, the parent company of Puckett’s, will cover the remaining $10 for each ticket purchased.
“The crucial work that CASA does directly impacts children in our community, and A. Marshall Hospitality looks forward to supporting them as much as we can through the Playhouse campaign each year,” said Sally Flinck, Marketing Director for A. Marshall Hospitality. “We love seeing Franklin rally around such a deserving organization.”
CASA representatives will attend the Puckett’s Hitmakers Series on Saturday, Sept. 28 to highlight the importance of this fundraiser and recognize Franklin Firefighters Charities for its commitment to CASA and the Playhouse campaign for the past five years.
In addition to Puckett’s Gro. and Puckett’s Boat House, the 2019 Williamson County CASA Playhouse campaign is supported by Twice Daily and Little Sprouts Sale.
The winner will be drawn on the Puckett’s stage at 5 p.m. on October 19. Please call Puckett’s Gro. & Restaurant in Franklin at (615) 794-5527 or Puckett’s Boat House at (615) 790-2309 with any questions. For more information about Williamson County CASA, visit www.williamsoncountycasa.org.
