Big Brothers Big Sisters of Western North Carolina is raffling off a log cabin perched on the edge of Great Smoky Mountains National Park near Bryson City to a lucky future owner. Proceeds from the raffle tickets, priced at $100 each, will enable the organization to further match children and teenagers with caring and consistent adult mentors building long-lasting friendships.
“We are excited about this opportunity,” said BBBS Executive Director Robin Myer, “It’s a wonderful cabin and to think you could own it for $100 is astounding.”
“At Big Brothers Big Sisters, we recognize the importance of having someone to look up to,” continued Myer. “We see it in improvements in grades at school, a stronger sense of direction and self-worth, and ultimately, a young adult who wants to contribute to society.”
The custom-built cabin is 2,000 square feet with a 1,400 square foot wrap-around porch complete with hot tub. The home features an upper loft with two queen-size beds and a separate master bedroom, tiled bathrooms, a full kitchen with appliances, and downstairs game room with a pool table. Perfect for a family vacation home, the raffle prize includes furnishings as well as the cabin itself.
