2011 home located in Central; Blessing set

WHAT: Media is invited to join us for a house blessing at the nearly complete Our Lady of the Lake (OLOL) Children’s Hospital Mansion being built this year in Central. Bishop Robert Muench of the Catholic Diocese of Baton Rouge will officiate joined by Father Mike Moroney from St. Alphonsus Parish in Central.

                              This is the tenth anniversary of the project which benefits OLOL Children’s Hospital where more than 78,000 patients were treated last year from 61 of 64 parishes. The money raised will be used to purchase lifesaving pediatric equipment, expand resources and help Louisiana children receive specialized pediatric care here without having to travel out of state. The foundation of the home begins with the generosity of Dan and Cheree Brown, developers of Village Lakes Subdivision who donated the lot. This year a team of five builders are working in concert to complete the project. Lead builders are Kim and Ronnie Arceneaux of KM-Ron Builders. The Arceneaux’s grandchild spent time in the pediatric intensive care unit at OLOL Children’s Hospital where Kim is also a pediatric emergency room nurse. Joining them are Gafford Builders, JBS Companies, Rabalais Homes and RamCo Residential Builders.  The mansion is sponsored by the Capital Region Builders Association and in part underwritten by Southern Magnolia LLC and Plantation Management Company. This year’s mansion sits lakeside and is a 2,600 square foot, four bedroom, three bath home valued at over $360,000.  Tickets are $100 and on sale now at www.ololchildrens.org. Drawing will be held on December 6, 2011 on WAFB Channel 9.
