Calling All Builders for Cottages for Kids

September 6, 2013 by SoWal Staff

Children’s Volunteer Health Network (CVHN) is once again hosting their unique fundraising event November 9-30, 2013.  Now in its sixth year, the annual Cottages for Kids takes place on the East Long Green in Rosemary Beach. 

CVHN is reaching out to the community with a call for builders, architects and designers to come together for Cottages for Kids to help raise funds and awareness for children in need. In return, CVHN and will help promote your business as much as possible throughout the Cottages for Kids event. If you are not a builder, but would like to help out, you or your business can team with a builder and donate funding or sponsor a builder/architect team. 

Builders and architects are needed to chip in and help build childrens' smiles, not only in the regular smiley sense, but also helping make kids' smiles better through free dental and medical care. It is rewarding see all the joy on the kids’ faces at Cottages for Kids at Rosemary Beach. 

Cottages for Kids 2013 will kick off November 9th during the Flutterby Festival also held in Rosemary Beach. The gates will be open for families to enjoy and play throughout the Cottage event site every weekend in November (specific times and dates coming soon).

The sponsored event provides an uncommon opportunity for builders and architects to use their talents and creative imaginations to construct and decorate whimsical and quirky cottages that look like they came out of child’s fantasy world. 

CVHN hopes to educate the community about the benefits of “green” building techniques to promote healthier environments for our kids. The designs will be “earth friendly and kid approved”. The cottages are donated for the event and raffled, with all proceeds benefitting Children’s Volunteer Health Network.   

If you would like to participate or know someone who might be interested, please contact Zach Billingsley with CVHN at 850-622-3200, extension 102, or email at The builder entry form due date is September 13, with renderings due September 30.

Consider getting involved and showing your support for underprivileged kids in Walton and Okaloosa counties that need our help.
