Odds in your favor for Tehaleh home giveaway, spokeswoman says

Winging into my inbox this week was a note from Liv Faris, a spokeswoman for Tehaleh – the massive planned community in East Pierce County that used to be called Cascadia.

We’re still calling it Cascadia around here. Then we correct ourselves. It’s a process.

Faris reminded me that Cascadia’s new owners, Newland Communities, announced in August that it planned to give away a home as part of Tehaleh’s grand opening in late September.

The deadline for entry is next Thursday, Sept. 6. It involves a race that will whittle the field to six finalists. Go to for the details.

Earlier this week, Faris said not quite a thousand people have entered so far. “Odds of making it the final 6 to compete in the final race are good! Better than winning the lottery for sure,” she said.
