Congratulations to Angela Vecchio of Solon, Ohio, the winner of the Lake County YMCA 2015 Dream House located at 8135 Lilly Lane in the Concord Ridge development of Concord Township. Additionally, Donna Carraher of Geneva, Ohio, won the 2015 Chevy Malibu.
Angela was very excited to win after having bought only one ticket. It is not yet decided if she will take the 2015 Dream House and its furnishings or choose the $200,000 cash prize.
“I had a feeling that I could win today. My lucky number is seven, so I had a positve feeling about being the seventh person to draw a key today,” said Angela Vecchio.
The Lake County Y 2015 Dream House is a 2,600 square foot colonial style home with an additional 1,100 square feet of finished living space in the lower level. The house features a master bedroom and bath with an additional three bedrooms, four bathrooms, great room, sunroom, breakfast nook and kitchen all beautifully furnished and decorated by a team of designers. There is also a three-car garage and an outstanding outdoor patio with custom designed landscaping.
Dick Bennett, CEO for the Lake County YMCA, said, “We are very excited for Angela – and look forward to speaking with her soon. Everyone that participates in our Dream House project is rewarded for his or her work and time when the excitement bursts out of the winner as they open the door to the house. We know that we are making dreams come true.”
Dick Fraser, Chairman for the Dream House, added,“We especially want to thank our major sponsors for a successful 2015 Dream House, including Enzoco Homes, The Chevy Network/Classic Chevrolet, WKYC-TV3, and Sommerset Companies.”
He continued, “It is not yet determined how proceeds from the 2015 Dream House will be used for program enhancements, but each of the Lake County YMCA branches are beginning to determine which improvements would best meet the needs of their members. With a record breaking year in ticket sales, we’re expecting nearly $300,000 toward improvements at our four branches, outdoor family center and childcare facility.”
Since 1993, proceeds from the Dream House project have exceeded $4 million (approximately $200,000 per year) for program and facility enhancements that allow the Y to engage children, families and seniors in diverse programs at each Lake County YMCA branch (Central Y-Painesville, West End Y-Willoughby, East End Y-Madison, and the Outdoor Family Center).
