Beacon House announces capital campaign project for new location
Beacon House kicked off their capital campaign last night to build a brand new home near the new Duke LifePoint hospital.
The first pledge came from Steve Mariucci and his wife Gayle, presenting a check worth $150,000. Dozens of other community members and celebrities showed their support by standing with Steve to donate to the Legacy of Love campaign.
Depending on how much they raise they hope to build a new 60 room facility estimated at 6.4 million dollars.
"The new focus is let's build a new one right next to the new hospital, so obviously I'm jumping on board with that and asking a lot of people for their help and their support," said Mariucci. "We're going to get this thing built and we're going to get it done right."
They say no donation is too small. For details on how you can pledge to help call (906) 225-7100 or visit
