Edmonson Voice Report:
Edmonson County's Parade of Homes Christmas Edition, organized by local residents, took place on Saturday, December 3rd. The program featured 10 different area homes decked out with Christmas decor from top to bottom, inside and out. All of the profits from this year's event were donated to Edmonson County's FRYSC's Affordable Christmas Program, which were in excess of an astounding $10,000.
"Affordable Christmas is a program we have come to love to support in the community, said parade coordinators Drew and Jordan Cassady. "The ladies there work extremely hard for the families of EC. There was a need in support this year, so we decided to pull together a Parade of Homes. This event could not have taken place without the participants who offered up their homes and the gracious sponsors. We are so appreciative of all of them. After tickets sales & sponsorships, along with a few other anonymous donors, the event was able to give the EC FRYSC just over $10,000."
The program wanted to thank the Gold and Silver level sponsors that helped make the event possible:
"I personally had 59 people walk through my home on Saturday," said participant T.J. Massey, District 2 Magistrate-Elect. I believe this event can and will continue to grow each year in both participation and spectators. We will work on making it easier to buy tickets online and advertise a little more in advance."
