Special Viewing of Officer Ripatti's Extreme Makeover Broadcast

Los Angeles:  LAPD Assistant Chief Jim McDonnell will join Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa on Sunday, December 10, 2006, to recognize Corner Construction Group and the thousands of volunteers who banded together to build a new home for LAPD Officer Kristina Ripatti, her husband, Tim Pearce, and their young daughter.

Mayor Villaraigosa will present an award to the owners of Cornerstone Construction Group, which donated much of the labor, materials, and coordination to the home make-over project in Redondo Beach.

The presentations will take place between 6:00 and 6:45 P.M., at the Kings Harbor Church, 23915 Garnier Street, Torrance, CA, 90505.

Everyone present will view the first airing of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, featuring the building of Officer Ripatti's home.  It will be a special two-hour broadcast that starts at 8:00 P.M.  Organizers expect the church hall to be filled with volunteers, Kristina’s friend, family, and colleagues.  Producers expect the show to be one of its most popular yet.

"On behalf of the LAPD, I'd like to thank everyone connected with the show, all the volunteers, and all the donors who came together in support of Kristina and her family," said Police Chief William Bratton.  "I'd also like to thank the Redondo Beach Police Department for its support and Kristina's new neighbors for any inconvenience during the build, but I think they'll find Kristina and Tim are the type of neighbors worth the sacrifice."
