Crowds cheer for home makeover Thursday

A pep rally to kick off an "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" building project in Medford happens from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday at the South Medford High School gym, 1551 Cunningham Ave.

Doors open at 5 p.m. for the free event. All volunteers who have signed up to help on the project are encouraged to attend; 2,000 seats are available on a first come, first served basis, organizers said.

The show's senior producer Milan Vasic will speak, as will Rush Behnke, president of Ark Built Renovations in Medford, and architectural designer Ken Snelling, who are leading local construction teams.

Host Ty Pennington will knock on the door of the selected family on Sept. 7, and they will get to see their new home one week later.
