Party Parade 2016

Welcome to the Party Parade Website.

Party Parade will continue to give
small grants to local charities in 2016.

Deadline for Proposals : April 22, 2016


In the last 27 years, over $1,000,000 has been contributed to community charities by Party Parade.  Party Parade has also created awareness of the goals, programs, and needs of the charities it has supported.

We are grateful to the community and to the hosts and guests who have generously supported Party Parade.  Please accept our heartfelt thanks for making Party Parade a success over the past 27 years.
We will continue to support local charities. We hope that those of you who have supported Party Parade in the past will continue to do so.
