My Aunt and Uncle are one of three finalists to win a $31,000 complete kitchen makeover! This contest is being held by one of their local TV news stations. My cousin submitted their kitchen and here is the entry:
"I am submitting this photo on behalf of my mother and father-in-law. They purchased this house in the mid 70s and raised all 4 of thir children there. As you can see, not much has changed in the kitchen since the 70s, including the avacado formica, the dark cabintery, gold linoleum and the retro wallpaper. My in-laws are wonderful people and are always lending a hand to others in need; always putting their wants and needs on hold in order to help out others. The kitchen was always an area they were going to get to, but never did. My father-in-law grew up building houses and has helped so many others with various updates and repairs to their houses, always putting his projects on hold until everyone elses projects were complete. Unfortunately, health and life have gotten in the way, including a back, arm and shoulder injury that will make ever remodeling their kitchen (which you can see from the photo that work was started, but never complete) impossible. This is the house they raised their kids in, retired in, and will be the house they live in for the rest of their lives. It would be so nice to give such wonderful people who give so much to others such an awesome gift! Thank you for your consideration."
Please take just a moment to vote for these very deserving people! Voting closes TOMORROW (Tuesday, Nov. 23rd) at 5:00 p.m.
Thank you so much and I'll keep you posted on the results!
