What's Happening


“Move that Bus!” A rallying cry and a call to action at our Extreme Makeover: Home Edition Pep Rally last night at the South Jordan Fitness and Aquatic Center. Bands from Bingham and Herriman played, while the Bingham cheerleaders and Utah Jazz Dancers kept everyone on their feet. Even the Utah Grizzlies mascot was there to work the crowd as hundreds of volunteers learned more about how they can help build a new home in Daybreak for a deserving family, all in just 106 hours.
Former Jazz Coach Frank Layden was the master of ceremonies and shared his own inspiring stories of teamwork and the power of community. He also recognized the amazing contributions given to the project by community partners such as Mayor Money and the city of South Jordan, Holmes Homes, and Rio Tinto, as well as Sunroc Building Materials, Elite Exteriors, Mountain America Credit Union, Amano Chocolate, Sam’s Club, Zion’s Bank, Hansen Heating and Air, Durrant Slate Plumbing, Magnum Electric, Geneva Rock, Rollins Landscaping and Cache Valley Electric.
The most important part of the evening though was when Coach Layden turned the time over to Milan Vasic, a producer with Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.  Vasic outlined the goals of the program and what is still needed to make the Daybreak project a success: financial donations, supplies and volunteer efforts.
PLEASE donate and/or sign up to be a volunteer at daybreakutah.com/extreme.
Thank you to all who made the evening such a success and stay tuned for when we reveal the hero family next Thursday and start construction!
