Bryan’s House, a neighborhood agency that cares for HIV-infected children and children of HIV-infected parents, is the beneficiary of a fund-raiser by the National Association of the Remodeling Industry of Greater Dallas (NARI).

NARI is donating to Bryan’s House, located on Gaston Avenue, the money raised in a raffle at its bi-annual Home Improvement and Garden Show held last month at the Dallas Convention Center.

The Greater Dallas chapter of NARI, a professional trade organization for remodeling contractors and other members of the remodeling industry, organized a raffle of two deluxe children’s playhouses, each called “The Little House that NARI Built.”

Raffle tickets were sold for $2 a piece at NARI’s home improvement show. All funds will benefit Bryan’s House, says NARI vice president Chris Miles, who estimated $10,000 would be raised.

“This is our way of giving back to the community,” says Miles, who owns a contracting business. “You can’t help out kids enough. Bryan’s House is a very worthwhile charity.”

The playhouse winners will be announced March 4 between noon and 2 p.m. on Al Carrell’s Super Handyman talk show on KRLD (1080 FM).

“It’s wonderful,” says Bryan’s Executive Director Susan String about the fund-raiser. “We need help from the community to keep our program going.”
