Cottages for Kids has made a return appearance on the lawn at Rosemary Beach, just in time to make a lucky child's dreams come true for Christmas.

The five cottages are all one of a kind and constructed by local builders, who along with their team donated time, expertise, and resources for this good cause.

Of the five cottages now resting on Rosemary Beach's lawn, some are simple, some are three stories high with multiple choices for activities, but all would make a child's day or year pretty special.

Visitors can buy raffle tickets for the cottages to help other less-fortunate children's dreams come true in a different way.

There are children living in Walton County who don't have health or dental insurance adequate to cover needed procedures.

In 2005 Tricia Northcutt encountered such a child and wanted to help. The encounter led Northcutt and her husband Mark to establish the Children's Volunteer Health Network.

Since its inception, the faith-based 501(c)3 organization has facilitated more than 10,000 medical, dental, vision, and mental health procedures for low income families who are unable to access health services due to the unavailability (or inadequacy) of insurance.
