Playhouses to be auctioned offFor the 10th year, Stanford Shopping Center is the setting for playhouses that range in themes from a classic firehouse to a creekside cottage. The 15 custom-made playhouses will be auctioned at the Dreams Happen gala to be hosted by the shopping center June 4.
Dreams Happen brings together architects, designers and builders to create one-of-a-kind playhouses to benefit Rebuilding Together Peninsula, a nonprofit dedicated to rehabilitating homes and facilities for low-income families.
The playhouses will be on display through June 11.
The Dreams Happen auction will take place at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, June 4, in the shopping center's center pavilion. Television personality Diane Dwyer will serve as master of ceremonies. Guests will dine and dance under the stars, with food provided by the shopping center's restaurants.
Since its inception, Dreams Happen has raised $2.8 million for Rebuilding Together Peninsula with winning playhouse bids ranging from $6,000 to $70,000, says spokesperson Kate Comfort Harr.
