Usually, Ty Pennington and his Extreme Makeover Home Edition design team roll up to a deserving family’s home in the big bus and announce that they have been selected by ABC for a home renovation. In this week’s episode, however, things will be a little different as the lucky Lutz family will learn they’re getting a home makeover while at Yankee Stadium taking in a baseball game! Read on for details and more sneak peeks from the episode…
The Lutz family thought they had been invited to see a baseball game between the New York Yankees and the New York Mets, but received the surprise of their life when Ty Pennington stormed the field and announced in front of thousands of cheering fans that they would be receiving a new home courtesy of ABC’s Extreme Makeover Home Edition!
Grace and John Lutz were a couple who devoted their lives toÂ children with Down’s Syndrome.Â When they passed away, their daughter Kathleen and her brother John Jr. both gave up their careers to return to the family home and care for the remaining Down Syndrome siblings. Their house was forty years-old and a serious concern, considering the siblings are between 20 -25 years-old and require a safe place to live out their lives.
During the home’s demolition, actress Kristin Chenoweth, who coincidentally was recently named as a 2010 Angels in Adoption Award winner along with EMHE,Â joined the design team for some Broadway-style song and dance!
The episode, which will feature design team members Paige Hemmis, Tracy Hutson, Paul DiMeo, along with Ty Pennington, will air tonight, Sunday, October 3 on the ABC Network.
