Together, We Can End Alzheimer’s

Did you Know?

The McKee Homes Alzheimer’s Mission includes sponsoring four North Carolina Walk’s to End Alzheimer’s. The Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s is the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. This event is held annually in more than 600 communities nationwide, with more than 500,000 participants.

Our Why

The McKee family is all too familiar with the impact Alzheimer’s has on those who have the disease as well as their loved ones. In hopes that one day other families may not have to face the heartbreak by Alzheimer’s, the McKee family created the Joe McKee Memorial Alzheimer Fund to remember their beloved father and husband. In addition to supporting efforts such as the Walk to End Alzheimer’s, a percentage of every home sale by McKee Homes goes into the Joe McKee fund to support Alzheimer’s research.

McKee Homes Alzheimer’s Mission

The McKee Homes Alzheimer’s Mission statement is to passionately enrich the quality of life of individuals in our communities by helping the Alzheimer’s Association’s accomplish their vision, which is, A World Without Alzheimer’s.

NC Walk to End Alzheimer’s

Over the years, McKee Homes has drastically increased our Walk to End Alzheimer’s Results, but this year will be one to remember. McKee Homes was able to raise awareness for the Walk to End Alzheimer’s through virtual videos and socially distanced walks. Over the year, McKee Homes held four North Carolina walks and received 20 local sponsors across Fayetteville, Pinehurst, Wilmington and Raleigh. Team McKee and our McKee Sponsors raised $82,000 in 2020.

Grand Opening: New Phase in Evergreen at Flowers Plantation

Recently, Mckee Homes hosted the Grand Opening of its new phase in Evergreen at Flowers Plantation, an active adult gated community in Clayton, NC. Many attended the event, including the Clayton NC Chamber of Commerce. Along with the McKee Home team, the Clayton Chamber helped cut the grand opening ribbon. Retirement Funding Solutions, a Mutual of Omaha Company, sponsored the event.

Guests were excited to learn what the new phase had to offer. Featuring 11 new home sites, the new phase provides all the benefits of Evergreen at Flowers Plantation: great location, fantastic Epcon floor plans, organized activities, and resort-style amenities. Designed with an active retirement lifestyle in mind, Epcon homes feature wide interior doorways and no stairs from the outside. While many Epcon floor plans are available with an optional second story guest suite, single level floor plans are popular and available.

Delighted attendees also learned living in Evergreen comes with the benefit of worry-free lawn care; all yards are maintained by the Home Owner’s Association! Additionally, Evergreen is a quiet gated community. This privacy helps create a secure and neighborly atmosphere. Guests agreed the community is perfect for anyone seeking an active retirement lifestyle.

Along with the new phase, McKee presented its brand-new model home with an Epcon floorplan – the Promenade Bungalow. This sleek two-story new home  earned a gold award in its category by the Johnston County NC Parade of Homes. Additionally, it won a Special Feature Award for its outdoor living space – a large private patio just off a screened in porch with a ceiling fan. As with all of McKee’s Epcon floor plans, this new home has many luxury features including the following:

Kitchen Features

  • Stainless steel appliance package
  • Tiered kitchen cabinets with crown molding
  • Granite counter tops
  • 8″ stainless kitchen sink

Master Bedroom Suite Features

  • Trey ceiling
  • Large walk in closet
  • Master bath with adult height vanity and cultured marble counter top
  • Tiled shower

Evergreen at Flowers Plantation is located approximately 20 miles from downtown Raleigh, NC, and offers easy access to great restaurants, shopping, museums, entertainment venues, sports, and leisure. Additionally, it is close to NC 42, I-40, and I-95, making it an ideal home base and allowing for easy travel to the North Carolina coast or mountains.
