This spring’s Parade of Homes saw record-breaking attendance at the six Dream Homes featured on the tour. Over five weekends, the Dream Homes raised $74,000 for the Housing First Minnesota Foundation. These fundraising dollars help support the charitable arm of Housing First Minnesota in its work building and remodeling safe housing for Minnesotans in need.
“We had 13,000 people visiting this year’s Dream homes, which is so exciting,” said Jessica Ryan, executive director of Housing First Minnesota Foundation. “On behalf of the Foundation, we are so thankful for those of you that participated, and we can’t wait for the fall.”
Six exceptional homes were selected by the Foundation’s Dream Home committee, and attendees paid a $5 admission at the door or were able to purchase an all-access pass online to tour all the Dream Homes. This year’s Dream Homes included:
#41 by Denali Custom Homes, Inc. in Orono
#66 by Swanson Homes in Plymouth
#68 by Stonegate Builders in Plymouth
#234 by Style & Structure in Lake Elmo
#359 by Custom One Homes in Credit River
#R21 by HBRE – Home Building and Remodeling Experts in Minneapolis
