Reach Out Morongo Basin organizers are again gearing up for the 2019 Parade of Homes fundraiser to be held on Sunday, February 17, 2019. Officials are seeking homes and sponsors for the 15th Annual Parade of Homes. The event, which sees Reach Out Morongo Basin supporters from across the basin open their homes to curious visitors, is the Neighbors-Helping-Neighbors program's long-running fundraiser bringing in thousands of dollars in ticket sales and sponsorships every year to support its services to senior and disabled residents of the Morongo Basin.
"We are very excited for the upcoming 15th Annual Parade of Homes and the generosity of owners who open their doors to us is what makes this event such a success," said Executive Director Robin Schlosser. "Growing interest and success has homeowners eager to show their homes which range from renovated homestead cabins to astonishing architectural masterpieces. The unique qualities of each home showcase our desert community and way of life to visitors from all over the world as they tour the six homes, each with its own story."
Homes are being sought in Joshua Tree, Yucca Valley, and Morongo Valley, and homeowners are urged to call Reach Out Morongo Basin at (760) 361-1410 for more information or to offer their homes for consideration.
In addition, organizers are looking for tour and media sponsors at the following levels:
Platinum: $1,000 or more
The single Platinum Sponsor will receive top billing in all publicity about the home tour as well as listing on tickets, directional signs, advertising, flyers, posters, the Reach Out Morongo Basin website, and newsletter. The Platinum Sponsor also has the option of nominating one home for the tour, with the caveat that the home should be of historical or architectural interest and that the chairman reserves the right to choose homes for the tour. Docents at each home will wear company shirts and hats, assuming they are supplied by the sponsor, and will display company brochures during parade hours. The Platinum Sponsor will receive 20 FREE tickets.
Gold: $500 or more
Each Gold Sponsor will also be the floral centerpiece sponsor for one home on the tour with their name featured prominently in the display. Gold Sponsors will also be listed in advertising, flyers, posters, the Reach Out Morongo Basin website, and newsletter. Gold Sponsors will receive 8 FREE tickets.
Silver: $250 or more
Silver Sponsors will be listed in advertising, on flyers, posters, the Reach Out Morongo Basin website, and newsletter. Silver Sponsors will receive 4 FREE tickets.
