Eagle Scout Makes GiGi’s Deerfield ROCK!

Hi, I’m Andrew!

Have you seen the gym at GiGi’s Playhouse Deerfield?

For my Eagle Scout Project we put in a climbing wall and some cool shelving and hooks for the exercise balls and medicine balls in the gym.  I had a blast working with fellow scouts, good friends, my dad and my coach Dr. Matkov on this project.  We were all so excited to do this for GiGi’s Deerfield because my little sister Taylor is a regular there.  Taylor brings joy to everyone’s life.  She loves giving out compliments and big hugs.  She and I have a pretty special relationship.  We constantly joke around and she loves it when I babysit because she can convince me to take her to McDonalds every time!  Now we can head over to GiGi’s after and workout in the new and improved gym.  She is really excited about the climbing wall.  I love taking her to GiGi’s!  It’s a place where I know she will always be loved and can be the best she can be.  Thank you all for supporting my project and GiGi’s Playhouse Deerfield.



Thank you to Andrew for choosing GiGi’s Playhouse in Deerfield for your eagle scout project! He designed, built, and fundraised to make it possible. We can’t wait to see kids and adults ROCKin’ it at the playhouse!
