This year they say they could raise $40,000!This year 28 homes are entered in the Parade of Homes, and marketing and organizational efforts have doubled.

A total of five companies or individuals, including Trilogy and Apex, would agree to match the public admission fees (to a maximum of $4,000 per firm or individual). If 4,000 people attend and the gate receipts amount to $20,000, the five matching donors all donate $4,000 each, and total donations to the Summit Foundation from the 2007 Parade of Homes equal $40,000.If you donate, you receive the gratitude of the Summit Foundation and public recognition, both countywide and statewide. You will also earn the opportunity to be indelibly linked to the great works of the Summit Foundation. The matching donor participants names will be prominently displayed at all locations where Parade of Homes admission fees are collected.
