2015 Parade Of Homes To Help Kids With Cancer Experience Summer Camp Fun

NEW ORLEANS – The 2015 Parade of Homes will make a charitable donation of $1,500 to representatives of Camp Challenge to help children with cancer and their siblings experience summer camp fun.

         The donation will be made on Sunday, July 26, at 10:30 a.m., at the Children's Hospital of New Orleans’ Ambulatory Care Clinic entrance on Tchoupitoulas Street, before the kids board their busses at 11:00 a.m.

         Camp Challenge is a grass roots non-profit organization dedicated to giving ill children and their siblings, ages 6 through 18, a one-week, fun-filled summer camp experience. Camp is open to all children who reside in Louisiana and have a form of cancer and chronic hematological disorders.          Camp Challenge is provided completely free to all campers, funded 100% through private and corporate donations.

         The check includes funds raised during the 2015 Parade of Homes “Builders Challenge” contest. The Facebook contest encouraged Parade of Homes visitors to vote for their favorite Parade home. Creative Builders of Louisiana for their Lakeview home won this year’s contest.

         The Parade of Homes donation will help offset the costs of camp administration, helping Camp Challenge provide a truly memorable experience for all of the kids.

         "The Home Builders Association is committed to supporting our community through charitable donations,” said HBAGNO Executive Vice President, Jon Luther. “We can think of no cause more worthy than giving children with cancer, and their siblings, a fun, worry-free summer camp experience.”  

         The Home Builders Association of Greater New Orleans is a professional organization representing the residential housing industry, serving members and the community since 1941. Their membership is composed of approximately 1,100 dues paying home builders, developers, remodelers and associated businesses. The HBA serves the parishes of Orleans, Jefferson, St. Bernard, Plaquemines, St. John the Baptist, St. Charles and St. James.
