Party Parade 2015

Welcome to the Party Parade Website.

Party Parade will continue to give
small grants to local charities in 2015.

Deadline for Proposals : March 10, 2015


In the last 25 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 25 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.


The Party Parade Fund

The Marty Whitlow Cancer Research Fund
for ovarian cancer research

Children, Youth and Family Services
for support of Play Partners early learning program

The Women's Initiative
for support of the Mental Health Counseling and Services Program
