Evelyn Mount's generosity is well known throughout this community. Every holiday season, she serves 10-thousand people.
But what you may not know about Evelyn is that her home is in a serious state of disrepair. That's why construction began today to give her an "Extreme Home Makeover."
Teresa Morros is coordinating this enormous undertaking of remodeling Evelyn's home. Working with more than 30 separate vendors -- all volunteering their time, labor and services -- she'll be giving this house a brand new look...paying special attention to Evelyn's needs.
To keep the details of the remodel a secret, Evelyn has been put up at the Gold Dust west...and has been instructed not to sneak a peek.
No "Extreme Home Makeover" would be complete without redoing the yard and landscaping. Construction crews say they will do that last...in hopes to finish the whole project by the end of the month. Just in time for Evelyn's 80th birthday on May 6th.
