This week Nies Homes wants to recognize Marty Bean, who is the project manager for the St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway home. He was literally the first one at the ground breaking ceremony and hasn’t slowed down since, as we move past ground breaking to the foundation stage.
When asked his feelings as he attended the October 27 ground breaking ceremony, Marty says, “I am really excited to be a part of all of this and honored to be overseeing this project for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.”
Back in the 90s, a former employee of Marty’s had a son with cancer in his eye. The eye needed to be removed and was replaced with a glass one. Marty says he remembers how everything was payed for, including hospital fees, travel, everything. “It was amazing,” he says.
Be sure and drive by our St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway house, which is located at Lookout Pointe in Derby’s The Oaks. Or check back on NiesHomes.com as we continue to provide updates on the home’s progress.
You’ll be able to reserve your ticket beginning in March, 2016 with the giveaway on May 25, 2016. All proceeds from the ticket sells will go back to helping the doctors and scientists at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in their search to find cures and treatments for childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
