Playhouse Parade Winners Announced

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS, Mont. - The Family Tree Center, the Downtown Exchange Club, and the Habitat for Humanity are all getting a large sum of money thanks to the annual Playhouse Parade.

On Saturday, parade organizers announced the 2014 winners for the five playhouses. According to Playhouse Parade President, Darwin George, they hope to raise between $30,000 to $50,000 for Billings at-risk children. George said organizers made the parade bigger and better in 2014 by offering more amenities like a big-kid playhouse. "It's a win-win situation for everyone. We have people who love to donate to kids' projects. We have builders who can show off their wares and how they do things. We have people who are excited about winning the playhouses. We have kids who are going to benefit in the long run from the whole thing," George said.

Darwin said the Playhouse Parade has generated nearly $500,000 for at-risk youth since it started in the early 90's. It used to be held every other year, but organizers decided to coordinate the event annually due to the improved economy.
