I recently received this press release about how Golden Eagle Log Homes donated its showcase home for a charity event to help ease the burden of those affected by cancer. It does my heart good to know that we're involved with such a thoughtful industry, so I had to share. I hope anyone who's in the Wisconsin region (or those willing to travel for an excellent cause) is able to attend. - Donna
Golden Eagle Log Homes
, a leading log home producer, has announced a wine-tasting fund raiser and silent auction. The event, which will benefit Angel On My Shoulder
, a non-profit cancer advocacy, will take place Saturday, September 20, 2008, at the recently completed Golden Eagle showcase home in Rhinelander, WI.
The event, featuring more than 25 wines from around the world, along with an array of specialty beers, also includes a Premium Wine Table option to sample rare vintages, including Chateau Lafite Rothschild, Heitz Cellar and Penfolds. Tickets for the event, which include a silent auction, as well as appetizers, harp music and pontoon rides on Lake Thompson, are $75 per individual, or $100 per couple. All monies will be donated to Angel On My Shoulder.
The charity, conceived and created by Lolly Rose in 1995 following the loss of her husband, Dick, to a courageous battle with cancer, helps to further the well-being of those affected by cancer by assisting individuals, families and caregivers, as well as granting requests of those living with cancer to help enrich their lives. “Nearly everyone has, unfortunately, been touched by cancer in some way,” says Golden Eagle Log Homes president and co-owner, Jay Parmeter. “Angel On My Shoulder is such an empowering organization – we felt their mission, while of course on a completely different level, was not unlike that of Golden Eagle’s – focus on quality of life and limitless possibilities.”
Golden Eagle's showcase home in Rhinelander, Wisconsin, where the event will be held from 4:00pm -8:00pm, is located on Lake Thompson, a nearly 400 acre lake, with several hundred feet of lake access and a boat dock. The 5500+ square foot log home was designed as a weekend retreat for an active family who wanted to bring their love of the outdoors in. The open concept prominently features the majestic beauty of logs, with a seamless integration of modern day luxury. Featuring a gourmet kitchen for entertaining, including 36” deep granite countertops, the three-level home has 5+ bedrooms (two of which are master suites, for the convenience of guests) and 4 bathrooms, as well as a 2200+ square foot finished family room.
