Reach Out Morongo Basin’s annual “Parade of Homes” has become a February tradition for many desert dwellers. For the past 13 years, many hundreds have set out on the tour, while many others have opened their hearts and homes to them. Reporter Mike Lipsitz has this on how you can get involved…

If your home showcases unique qualities of our desert community, consider adding it to this year’s “Parade of Homes” tour set for February 18. The tour is expected to generate thousands of dollars to support area seniors and disabled residents. In all, six homes are needed for what is Reach Out Morongo Basin’s annual flagship fundraiser. Curious visitors buy a one-day pass then set out to explore everything from astonishing architectural masterpieces to renovated homestead cabins; each with its own story. Executive Director Robin Schlosser says it’s the generosity of owners who open their homes that makes this event such a success. If your home has a story, features unique qualities, or reflects your own innovations, consider adding it to the tour. Reach Out makes it easy; call Schlosser at 760-361-1410 to learn more.
