  • Kansas City, MO-KS (1888PressRelease) July 15, 2011 - M.A.C Corporation and Canyon Creek Construction, LLC, are pleased to announce that UMB Bank is offering its services and experience to establish the Family Build Fund for "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition."

    Several well-deserving families are under consideration for an extreme home makeover in the Greater Kansas City region. Based on their courageous stories, the lives of one lucky family will forever change when they hear that special knock on their door and learn they have been selected for an Extreme Home Makeover.

    M.A.C Corporation and Canyon Creek Construction, LLC, co-builders, would like to thank UMB Bank for establishing and contributing to the Family Build Fund. Robert Andrew, President of M.A.C., and Rhonda Tiegreen, owner of Canyon Creek Construction, said, "UMB Bank is an ideal partner to manage the Family Build Fund given their reputation in the community, exceptional integrity and trustworthiness.

Extreme t-shirts will be for sale with proceeds benefiting the Family Build Fund. The public is invited and strongly encouraged to attend the "Extreme Makeover Pep Rally" and to volunteer at the build site. This is a FREE event and open to all ages.

    "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition," will launch its ninth season this fall. Averaging more than 8 million viewers per show, it's available in 185 counties in 58 languages and has 850,000 Facebook fans. The Greater Kansas City area communities are encouraged to join our "Extreme Makeover" crew by volunteering their time in order to make this build the most meaningful and beneficial makeover yet. Each episode of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" is self-contained and features a race against time on a project that would ordinarily take at least four months to achieve, involving a team of designers, contractors and several hundred workers who all have just seven days to totally rebuild an entire house - every single room, plus the exterior and landscaping - for free! The result should be a decorator's delight…if it can be done in time.

    For more information about the show, please check-out the "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" website at abc.com/ExtremeMakeoverHomeEdition. For information regarding the Greater Northeast Kansas area project, please contact Jenny Kincaid at (816) 550-4382 or jenny ( @ ) socialwrx dot com.

It's executive-produced by Brady Connell and George Verschoor. David Goldberg is Chairman, Endemol North America. Episodes air Sunday from 8:00 - 9:00 p.m., ET on ABC.
