“The $100,000 Miracle Home Makeover is a wonderful event with amazing community support,” said Eileen Pronobis, CFRE, executive director of the FSLH Foundation. “More than 85 vendors and contractors donate their time, talents and products to this project and we are grateful to them all. And again this year we’ve added incentive drawings that allow those who purchase a ticket a chance to win prizes donated by our vendors throughout the promotion. It makes it exciting and fun for everyone. Remember, the earlier you buy your ticket, the more opportunities you have to win some incredible prizes for your home, donated by our Miracle Home Makeover partners.”

Projects such as the $100,000 Miracle Home Makeover allow FSLH to make a difference in the lives of many children and families by providing critical and life saving care, child-friendly pediatric medical equipment, as well as vital programs and services for children and families throughout the Mohawk Valley. Funds raised by our CMN Hospital stay here in our community.
