An invitation: 4 ways to play an important role in the 2012 House Tour.
The Annual House Tour is one of MMPCIA's
most important fund raisers.
The proceeds are used throughout the year to support our ongoing mission to revitalize, preserve and foster an environment of open and active participation in the greater Mount Morris Park neighborhood.
Our theme this year is Character(s) Welcome!
celebrating the architectural character and design esthetic associated with Harlem homes as well as the colorful, creative and vibrant personalities of the characters that comprise our community.
Here's how you can get involved:
1. Showcase your house, apartment or condo on the tour. We need 10-12 homes each year. Is this the year to show yours?! It's actually a lot of fun having people Oooh! and Ahh! at the details and what you've done--or not done to your place. It's also a good kick in the rear to finish some of those lingering to-dos you've been meaning to check off the list for years. And there are a lot of other good perks. Download our Homeowner FAQs and then give us a call.
2. Advertise with us.
Promote your business or service, congratulate your child, spouse--even yourself--or honor a memory by placing an ad in this year's beautiful keepsake Guidebook. It's easy. Download the Advertiser's Packet for more information on sizes and costs. Time is of the essence. The deadline for reservations and payment has been extended to Friday, June 11. Don't miss out!
3. Be a Greeter.
We need 60 friendly volunteers to serve as Greeters in the homes on the day of the House Tour. Our events are successful because of our volunteers. Volunteers help us present ourselves at our best to outside guests and neighbors alike. In exchange for serving a 3-hour shift, you'll get a free Tour ticket and a souvenir T-shirt. Contact our Volunteer Wranglers to sign up.
4. And finally--Spread the word!Be sure to invite friends, family and colleagues to enjoy a fun, full day in this historic neighborhood! We'll be putting details on the website shortly about the events of the day and how to reserve tickets in advance.
