If you’ve been to Rimrock Mall this week you’ve seen that – in addition to the exterior makeover that continues to be underway – some incredible playhouses (and one backyard oasis) have taken up temporary residence in the center court of this Billings mall. Yes, the Playhouse Parade is back and awaiting a few lucky winners to take these spectacular specimens of imagination to their new homes. The 2015 Playhouse Parade is running May 4-June 13.
We’ll talk tickets and how you can enter to win one of these creations in just a bit, but first let’s take a look at the folks behind these miniature masterpieces and for whom the Playhouse Parade is raising money.
The following builders are responsible for this year’s playhouses on display.
- Quentin Eggart with Eggart Engineering and Construction
- Tammy and Jeff Hill with Hill Builders
- Nick Lambert with Faithful Cleaning and Restoration
- Harry Lahey and Friends
Why the Playhouse Parade?
Since the late 90’s, Playhouse Parade has raised over ½ million dollars for a variety of local charities. This year’s recipients include…
- Habitat for Humanity
- The Family Tree Center
- The three Exchange Clubs in Billings
- Tumbleweed Program
- Roaddogs Christmas Toy Run
In addition to the builders donating the playhouses, with Rimrock Mall providing the space for the Playhouse Parade and paying for advertising, 100% of the funds raised goes back to these local organizations.
I bet you’re just itching to know how you might go about throwing your hat into the ring to try and win one of these beauties. Wait no more…
Tickets are $5 each or 5 tickets for $20. You’ll take your ticket and place it in the receptacle located in the front of the playhouse you’re vying for. There will be four different drawings on June 13 at center court in Rimrock Mall – you do not have to be present to win.
In addition to getting tickets at the mall, you can also purchase tickets from all Cellular Plus locations, The Pub Station, Tanz & Things, and at all of the above recipient’s locations.
