Ivory Homes announced the Gardner Family from Lehi, Utah as the winner of their $25,000 homebuyer giveaway. The Gardner Family was selected from nearly 150 new Ivory homeowners who shared why their Ivory Home was their dream home.

They received a $25,000 grand prize to Hamilton Park Interiors, who specializes in helping clients create a comfortable, beautiful home providing quality home furnishings and personalized design services.  

“Kimball and Abby Gardner and their son are more than deserving of this prize being a first-time homebuyer. It was wonderful to learn about what achieving homeownership meant to and how impactful this prize will be for their family,” said Clark Ivory, CEO of Ivory Homes. “We know it’s our customers and their stories that have made us Utah’s Number One Homebuilder for the past 32 consecutive years We are extremely grateful to all of our homebuyers.”

In their response, the Gardner family shared what a new Ivory Home meant for their family:

“Our new Ivory Home is a miracle. We were renting a townhome apartment in Draper, and although we liked it there, we were starting to outgrow it. With our plans for future children, we would be outgrowing it soon. But buying a home seemed a long way off, with no real possibility for at least a couple more years.”

As first-time homebuyers, the Gardner Family was eligible to participate in Ivory Homes’ Utah Workforce Housing Priority, a program designed to help first-time homebuyers and community heroes afford to call their communities home. The program has now helped more that 170 Utah families achieve homeownership.

“We’re so excited to help the Gardner Family start this amazing journey of homeownership by helping furnish their new home,” said Shayne Hemsley, President of Hamilton Park Interiors. “Few industries focus on living spaces and how those spaces impact relationships and memories with family and friends, we’re lucky to be able to help shape those experiences for Kimball, Abby and their son.”
