Otherwise holiday fundraiser may take hiatus this year
Partners with PARC, a nonprofit dedicated to hosting fundraising events and campaigns to secure the financial future of people with developmental disabilities, may need to put its annual Cold Spring by Candlelight Holiday Festival & House Tours on hiatus.
Cold Spring by Candlelight (CSBC) celebrated its 12th anniversary in 2014 and has become a holiday destination event for the Village of Cold Spring. The event organizers, however, are facing the difficult task of signing up new village homeowners to participate in the tour. Event attendees, who are surveyed after each event, report that the only way they will continue to attend CSBC is if new houses are featured each year.
The event organizers need the help of Village of Cold Spring and Village of Nelsonville homeowners who are willing to open their homes for the annual tour on Saturday, Dec. 5, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. As incentives for their assistance, all homeowners receive a gift certificate to dine out in the village after the tour, a land-only vacation for two adults and two children to Cancun, Mexico, and the chance to win a $500 prize if the home wins the “Best House on the Tour,” as decided by the tour attendees.
The deadline to have your home considered for the tour this year is July 1. For more information about the tour and to be a part of the 2015 event, contact Rand Bridget Otten at 845-278-7272, ext. 2287, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
