Extreme Makeover Home Edition to Build at the Beach

Sussex County is getting national attention from Extreme Makeover Home Edition (EMHE)! They’ve chosen southern Delaware’s own Schell Brothers Construction to build their next home for a deserving family in our area. The build will begin August 22, and run through August 29, when crowds chant “Move That Bus!” welcoming the family to their new home. Last night, Cape Henlopen High School became the scene of an energizing pep rally featuring cheerleaders, drum lines, EMHE crazed fans, and some of the folks behind the show. But no, Ty Pennington didn’t make an appearance. That won’t happen until next week, when on Tuesday, Ty will surprise one very lucky family with his famous “Gooooooooood Morning,” kicking off the beginning of 4 1/2 days of extreme building. That’s right- only 4 1/2 days. With an army of over 7000 volunteers from around the community, this promises to be one of the most exciting builds yet. Following the pep rally, a benefit concert was offered, with all proceeds from tickets going to help the cause. Guest host Telly Leung, of the hit show, Glee, was on hand to introduce talent from around the area, treating the audience to 4 movements of a ballet, tap and jazz dancers, Broadway singers, piano players, and even a visit from Miss. Delaware. After a finale featuring the Blue Moon’s own Pamala Stanley singing Ain’t No Mountain High Enough, guests were reminded of the fact that although we may face seemingly unsurmountable odds, every one of us has the ability to be a hero, by getting involved in a cause where we can make a difference. Because of Sussex County’s amazing community, a house will be built in 4 1/2 days, and a family that once felt hopeless, will get a new beginning.
