SOUTH JORDAN, Utah (ABC 4 News) - Bands from Bingham and Herriman played, the Utah Grizzlies mascot worked the crowd and cheerleaders held up signs that read, "Move that Bus!" -- all to fire up a crowd of more than 600 volunteers who had come to hear how they will help Holmes Homes build a home in Daybreak in 106 hours.
Former Jazz Coach Frank Layden was the master of ceremonies for the rally. He introduced many of the key subcontractors and partners who have volunteered their equipment, materials and expertise in support of Holmes Homes.
Then he turned the mic 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:
The project begins next Wednesday with the "door knock" at the current house of the family that will be receiving the new Daybreak home. It ends one week later when Ty Pennington yells, "Move that bus!"
Stay tuned to ABC 4 and CW 30 for daily updates on the event.
