Home makeover goes to Lewis

Avrielle Lewis wins a home makeover from Alberni Valley's Coast Realty Group.

Avrielle Lewis has won a home makeover from Coast Realty Group of the Alberni Valley.

Lewis, who lives in the 2800-block of Third Avenue, has always been a hard worker and volunteer, but a rare medical condition has resulted in a reduced ability to continue working, according to her sister, Susan Cootes, who nominated Lewis for the contest.

“A proud homeowner, Ms. Lewis has had a difficult time watching the exterior of her home degrade over time, unable to keep up with the work,” Coast Realty Group spokesperson Chris Fenton said.

Coast Realty Group, Colyn’s Landscaping and Benjamin Moore are joining forces to give Lewis’ home a makeover this Saturday, July 20.

Volunteers with the Coast Realty team will give the home new external paint, some general maintenance, as well as a landscaping upgrade.

“The time and money donated by Coast Realty, and its partners, will benefit Ms. Lewis while simultaneously helping to beautify the Alberni Valley’s downtown core,” Fenton said.

This is the second annual Coast Realty Group Home Makeover contest. For the second year in a row, Benjamin Moore has donated the paint, while Colyn’s Landscaping has donated time, equipment, and expertise.
