DENVER, CO – Nearly 2,000 people participated in the 15th Annual Washington Park Home Tour held Saturday, May 11, 2013. The event, co-sponsored by Kentwood Real Estate, is a fundraising event that benefits Steele Elementary School and the Denver Public Schools (DPS) Educational Outreach Program which assists more than 2,100 homeless students within the DPS. Attendees toured some of Wash Park’s finest homes, including historic residences and newly constructed homes in one of Denver’s most popular neighborhoods.
“This year’s Wash Park Home Tour was an overwhelming success,” said Michel Brossmer, a leading Broker Associate with The Kentwood Company at Cherry Creek. “The weather was perfect, the crowds turned out, and the Street Fair was a huge hit. We sold more than 1,900 tickets and close to 200 volunteers gave their time and effort to make the 2013 tour such a big success. Likewise, more than 50 businesses supported the event through sponsorships, advertising, and participation. I want to personally thank everyone who played a role in making this year’s Wash Park Home Tour the very best to date.”
Of the total funds raised from the tour, 10 percent will be donated to the DPS Educational Outreach Program, with the balance used for new technology in classrooms at Steele Elementary School. To date, more than $72,000 net has been raised through the tour. Featured homes this year included an historic bungalow, new build, a Denver Square design, and Arts and Crafts new build, and a renovated Tudor.
The tour included a Street Fair featuring food trucks, event sponsors, the Steele Greenhouse, and music. There was also a scavenger hunt for pictures of objects from the homes that spell out “Wash Park Home Tour” on the directory cover. There were prizes and fun for everyone, including community leaders, builders, architects, interior designers, Steele Elementary parents, and many more.
The Wash Park Home Tour is an enjoyable and unique way to spend a spring day while benefiting a great cause. The event is held on Saturday of Mother’s Day weekend each year.
