NEWPORT BEACH, Calif.– McCarthy Building Cos., in partnership with CHOC Children’s recently built a technologically advanced playhouse for HomeAid Orange County’s 19th Annual Project Playhouse fundraiser.

Approximately $338,000 was raised for HomeAid Orange County through the Project Playhouse event. All of the playhouses were on display in the Project Playhouse Village from July 31 to Sept. 10 at the Irvine Spectrum Center. During the event, the McCarthy/CHOC playhouse received two awards given by HomeAid Orange County; The Grand Award (First Place) and Secret Garden Award (Best Landscape Design).

Kelly Rasmussen, of Rasmussen Design, coordinated the landscape team and developed a Hampton inspired landscape design by intermixing natural grass and a variety of shrub massings, including Iceberg and blanket Roses as well as Hydrangeas and Lavender.

Rasmussen collaborated with Daniel Lisch from Southern Exposure Landscape Management; Dan Dworman with Norman’s Nurseries who supplied approximately $5,000 in plant material; Duane Carter with Garden Art International and Jim Boike with Vista Professional Outdoor Lighting.
