LOUISVILLE, Ky. Tickets are now available for the annual Norton Children’s Hospital Home and BMW Raffle, with the chance to win a newly built Ramage Company home in Norton Commons, valued at approximately $600,000 and a 2017 BMW 2 Series convertible from BMW of Louisville plus $10,000 cash. Tickets are on sale for $100 each. All proceeds from this seventh annual raffle support the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) at Norton Children’s Hospital through the Children’s Hospital Foundation.

Tickets are available online at homeandbmwraffle.com, by calling (502) 559-KIDS or toll free at (877) 782-8811. Tickets also will be on sale during open house events Saturdays and Sundays, Sept. 30 through Nov. 12, at the raffle home in Norton Commons in eastern Jefferson County. The address of the home is 6119 Mistflower Circle, Prospect, Ky.

The raffle home, valued at approximately $600,000, features Italianate architecture complimented by an open floor plan design with 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. It has a living room with a fireplace, a first-floor master suite, two covered porches, casual outdoor room, full basement and two-car attached garage. Other amenities include 12’ high ceilings, arched doorways, detailed wood work and paneling, wood floors, marble countertops, stainless steel appliances and a geothermal heating and cooling system to save on energy costs. The second floor includes a loft with kitchenette, a nursery and a bedroom with a kid-friendly bunk bed feature.  

Ramage Company developed the floor plan and is managing construction with interior design by Leslie Cotter Interiors, in conjunction with support from suppliers and trade partners who have donated time and materials to the project.  

 “This is our fifth year supporting this effort, and each time it has been such a rewarding project,” said David Ramage, founder and president, Ramage Company. “Everyone involved knows the value of helping the children of this community and we are honored, we can give back.”

The drawing will be held Nov. 18, 2017, at the Children’s Hospital Foundation’s annual fundraising gala, the Snow Ball, at the Louisville Marriot Downtown. Winners will be announced Nov. 19 on the Norton Children’s Facebook page.

Once the first prize drawing is completed for the 2017 BMW 2 Series convertible plus $10,000 cash, the winner’s ticket will be put back in the drawing for the home. That means one lucky person has an opportunity to win both prizes.

The 2017 BMW 230i convertible from BMW of Louisville is alpine white with black interior. It features heated front seats and Bluetooth wireless technology. The package includes full maintenance for three years or 36,000 miles.

The raffle is sponsored by Norton Commons, BMW of Louisville, Ramage Company, WAVE-3 News, Leslie Cotter Interiors, Market on National, Wal-Mart and Alpha Media.

Each year, more than 1,400 critically ill and premature infants from throughout Kentucky and Southern Indiana come to the Norton Children’s Hospital neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) for the highest level of care available. This includes everything from the highest technology available for ventilation, neonatal heart surgery, extra-corporeal membrane oxygenation and even just oxygen and supportive care.

Proceeds from the 2017 Home and BMW Raffle as well as Festival of Trees & Lights and Snow Ball, will help with the final phase of renovation and expansion of patient-centered care within the hospital’s NICU. This developmental and family-centered care approach focuses on noise and light levels, touch and the family's complete involvement in decision-making from the beginning of the child's life. This has been shown to improve an infant’s chances and reduce the amount of time in the hospital. The model has already been shown within the hospital to make a difference for families during this difficult and stressful time.
