Spirit of Brandtjen Farm – Parade of Homes® Trolley Tour

September 27th, 2017

ALL ABOARD!

Our Trolley Tour was a huge success! That day was quite the scorcher, but it was the perfect way to beat the heat and tour the Spirit of Brandtjen Farm community. Our New Home Consultants greeted new faces, neighbors, friends, and colleagues, with appetizers, tasty treats, and refreshments at each stop.

A special thank you to our local providers who helped make this event such a success:

  • SmallCakes Cupcakery for their adorable and delicious mini cupcakes
  • HyVee for their bite sized appetizers
  • Schmitty & Sons for their authentic New Orleans style trolley (Bob the driver was a hit as well!)
  • Hope Kids staff for coming out and spreading the word about their amazing cause and how the 2017 House That Hope Built will affect them and the families of the organization.

In case you missed it, here are some photos from the event. Stay tuned for more updates from the Parade of Homes® and The House That Hope Built!

We are excited to continually partner with HopeKids to bring smiles to children and their families throughout Minnesota.
