Party Parade 2017

Welcome to the Party Parade Website.

Party Parade will continue to give
small grants to local charities in 2017.

Deadline for Proposals : March 15, 2017


In the last 28 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 28 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 Party Parade Fund was created in 1998, the tenth anniversary of Party Parade. Since that time, it has awarded small grants to many local charities for projects that might otherwise have fallen through the gaps.  The Fund's recipients in 2016 were:

Ready Kids:
To support their Play Partners program to provide a year's worth of weekly literacy services to low income children.

To support a new nature-based program for families facing stressful life events.
