2015 Annual Parade of Homes earns record-breaking $35,500 for The Summit Foundation
During the last two weekends of September 2015, more than 2,300 individuals visited the 21st Annual Parade of Homes in Summit County. Summit County Builders Association hosts this premier home tour to showcase the latest in building design and trends.
During the two weekends, The Summit Foundation volunteers staffed the featured homes to earn the proceeds from the $15 admission. City Market in Breckenridge and Dillon and Bank of the West branches within Summit County sold tickets, which led to a record-setting event. As volunteer outreach, Bank of the West employees also sold tickets at a New West Partners home in the Highlands Park neighborhood in Breckenridge. The Summit Foundation is grateful for their employees’ donated time to help make this event a success.
Mountain Living magazine helped host the annual Awards Party. The magazine’s editors honored Allen-Guerra Architecture with the Peak Award for its home in Breckenridge’s shock hill neighborhood. That home also was honored as the Overall Winner in its size category. Other Overall Winners included Rubicon Builders and Harmony Interiors for their construction of a for-sale home on Boulder Circle in Breckenridge; Pinnacle Mountain Homes was recognized for their rustic home on Stoney Trail in Keystone. Additional awards recognized CET & Associates for the Best Automated Homes, High Country Conservation Center for the Energy Conservation Award, and Coldwell Banker Rounds & Porter Realty for the Location Award.
The Summit Foundation is appreciative of the Summit County Builders Association for this wonderful event and is thankful to be recognized as the event’s beneficiary. Thanks to the 2015 event sponsors Breckenridge Building Center, Bank of the West, Cutting Edge Woodworking, CET & Associates, Kitchenscapes, Coldwell Banker Rounds & Porter Realty, Title Company of the Rockies, Arrow Insurance, and Mountain Living magazine. Over $35,500 in ticket sales were contributed to The Summit Foundation during this year’s tour of 16 homes.
