Extremely Moving EventOctober 13, 2011 They say a life can change in a moment. For Sgt. Allen Hill and his family, their lives changed in the moment it takes for a tour bus to move 20 feet. As cheering neighbors in the background chanted “move that bus,” the Hill family saw the first glimpses of their new 4,100 square-foot home and the first glimpses of the new life ahead of them.
Friday, November 4 at 8 P.M. EST, viewers are invited to see the two-hour heroic story of Sgt. Hill, a retired veteran suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, on ABC’s hit series Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.
During the week-long taping of the show, the Extreme Makeover BBQ Throwdown was held and top Kansas City Barbeque Society teams competed against each other, fed the 3,500 people in attendance and helped raise over $35,000 to assist the Hill family with living expenses.
Tyson Foods, Farmland Foods and Sam’s Club® who, along with dozen’s of local partners and businesses, ABC, and the entire gracious community of Ottawa, Kan., were able to come together and contribute to the BBQ Throwdown and the Home Makeover event to help ensure its success.
“To see the community come out like they did in mass numbers and perform amazing feats is just a wonderful testament to the fabric of America,” said Allen Hill of the experience.
