Parade of Homes take is happy news for charity By Leslie Shaw ?and Sara Kernan Hi-Desert Star Hi-Desert Star | 0 comments MORONGO BASIN — A record number of people raised more than $9,500 for services to older and disabled people during the 14th annual Parade of Homes for Reach Out Morongo Basin Sunday. “With over 300 parade-goers this year our attendance was the highest it has ever been,” Reach Out Executive Director Robin Schlosser said. Schlosser joked she was doing a happy dance when the numbers came in. Visitors came from as far away as North Dakota, New York and Washington, D.C., as well as from Canada, Belgium and France this year, marking the first time the event has attracted people from out of the country, Schlosser said. Casa de Loma, Tower Homestead, Rancho de Las Palmas and Casa Ladera were all featured in Twentynine Palms this year as well as the Cramalot Inn in Joshua Tree and Casa de Culebra in Morongo ValleyHomeowners volunteer to open up their properties to accomplish this yearly fundraiser.  “The diversity of the homes represent the unique lifestyle here in the Morongo Basin,” Schlosser said. Reflective of the artistic dimension, the Cramalot Inn, though never actually an inn, was once a modest, ranch-style home in Joshua Tree, but has been refurbished and polished into a showpiece with a manicured backyard perfect for entertaining. The furnishings and appointments are rustic, but the house is modern where it should be, as seen in the marble counter-tops in the kitchen and baths and the large jacuzzi on the raised deck. Tom and Judy Malnar put their home on display for the 2018 Parade of Homes because of a family memberJudy explained, “My sister talked me into itShe said I am doing it, so you should tooShe is the Adobe Circle home in Twentynine Palms.” The couple moved here from snow countryTom said, “We’re very luckyWe moved out here in 2015 from MinnesotaI gutted the whole house and I’m still doing thingsI can’t do all the work, but I’m good at designing things.” Also transplants to the desert are homeowners Patrick Gange and Lynn Holt, who opened up their property, Rancho de las Palmas. Named in recognition of the 327 palm trees growing on the property, the rancho is a true oasis tucked away in Twentynine Palms. The couple moved from Alameda to Twentynine Palms in July 2015Gange had a nephew in the area and through that connection they made friends and felt at home in the arid community.  “I fell in love with itThe community, the heat, all of it,” Gange shared. The property was originally called Trigg Adobes and was built in the late 1920-’30sIn addition to lush green palm trees, the property boasts of guest house built in adobe style, a pool, garage and stable, but the overall draw for the homeowners was the views. “We fell in love with it the first time we saw it,” said Holt, who is originally from Kansas. Along with visits to six homes, ticket holders got lunch at the Park Rock Cafe in Joshua Tree thanks to owner Nelson Muniz and his staff. While at the Park Rock, diners were entertained by Mark Ross and Paul Gerkin, who perform as the Luminators. As the longest-running fundraiser for Reach Out Morongo Basin, the Parade of Homes brings in approximately five percent of the organization’s annual budgetAll proceeds fund programs such as transportation to doctors’ appointments and shopping, pickup and delivery of prescriptions, minor home repair and yard work.
