The waiting is nearly over. Tonight, Paulding County Schools will receive $100,000 from Patch thanks to a Dallas family’s Christmas decorations.
Joey Felix and his family had their Dallas home selected by Patch readers across the country as the “best decked” house in the 2012 Deck the House contest, which asked residents of Patch towns to submit photos and videos of their homes decorated for the holiday season. Winning the contest meant their local school district—Paulding County Schools—would receive $100,000.
Winning wasn’t easy. It was neck-and-neck in the final hours of the contest, Felix recalled right after the contest ended. But after placing second in the 2011 contest, the Paulding home took top honors in the 2012 competition.
Felix and his family will join Superintendent Cliff Cole on the East Paulding High School basketball court as Patch presents the school district with its check during the East Paulding-Allatoona game. The presentation is scheduled for 7 p.m.
