Although this event took place in 2008, the information remains posted to help other nonprofit hosts in their planning of future HGTV Dream Home tours. This information is not current.
Welcome to the Florida Keys Children's Shelter Tour Information Site for the
2008 HGTV Dream Home.
Every year, a non-profit organization is selected to partner with HGTV to conduct tours of the HGTV Dream Home to benefit a local charity. This year, developer Ned Johnson of The Shore Partners, Inc., chose The Florida Keys Children's Shelter as the beneficiary. We're so thankful to be a part of this exciting project!
Each ticket purchased directly benefited the Florida Keys
Children's Shelter. At FKCS, we're dedicated to providing
the best possible short and long-term care through our programs
for at-risk children.
Thank you for supporting The Florida Keys Children's Shelter.

"I grew up in the Keys, and this place is so intimate that I consider everyone my extended family. When you live in paradise, it's easy to forget that not everyone is as fortunate as you are. But if you step back for a moment and think about what's really important in life, isn't the answer always family?
I have been very fortunate and successful because I had a strong foundation growing up. I think if every kid could have the kind of love and support I grew up with, there's no doubt this would be an even more spectacular place to live. I'm so grateful to be able to aid the efforts of the Florida Keys Children's Shelter and I'm really looking forward to seeing the outcome of their hard work."
