Granville Homes broke ground on its ninth Home of Hope in northeast Fresno’s Copper River Ranch neighborhood on Wednesday morning.

This year’s home is a 1,301-square-foot, cottage-style floor plan with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, granite countertops, an alarm system and Granville’s Eco-Smart technology.

The Granville Home of Hope foundation has raised more than $2.7 million for charity since 2006 by raffling off a home. The recipients are: the Community Food Bank, Poverello House, Hinds Hospice, Assistance League, Renaissance Scholars at Fresno State and the Foundations for Clovis, Sanger and Central Schools.

“The Granville Home of Hope is a symbol of the basic needs of the underserved segments of our community,” said Darius Assemi, Granville president. “We applaud the work of the eight outstanding nonprofits who provide food, shelter, healthcare, education and therefore hope to the underserved in our community.”

The raffle tickets are $100 each. Unlike in past years, there will be a cap of 5,000 tickets for sale this year. The grand prize winner will have the option of choosing the house or $100,000 in cash.

Tickets are available by calling (559) 440-8388 or visiting a Granville office. The drawing will be held on June 11.
