The Auen Foundation will be the Presenting Sponsor of the Palm Desert Golf Cart Parade’s golden anniversary this October. This is the seventh year that the Auen Foundation is sponsoring the famously fun Parade.
The Auen Foundation’s gift supports a free, mostly shaded senior seating area for the Palm Desert Golf Cart Parade, which originated in the early 60s. The original parade was organized by several individuals who just wanted to have fun. Today, it has grown to more than 100 whimsically decorated golf carts, bands and dance groups, strolling down the beautiful El Paseo corridor and celebrating the Valley’s unique golfer’s paradise.
On Sunday, October 26, 2014 the tradition continues with our 50th Annual Parade, presented by the Auen Foundation with the “Palm Desert on Parade – Through the Decades” theme: 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s & Today. Entry forms are available online at www.golfcartparade.com
“We are honored and thrilled that the Auen Foundation is supporting the Golf Cart Parade again,” says Mike Hardin, Lock Shop and 2014 Chairman of the Golf Cart Parade. “This is a historic year for the parade, with the support from the City of Palm Desert, the Palm Desert Chamber of Commerce as Title Sponsors and the Auen Foundation as Presenting Sponsor. There truly is something for everyone at the event, and we couldn’t be happier about the festivities on our golden anniversary. We invite the entire Coachella Valley to come on out for a great day – or better yet – plan to be in the parade!”
The City of Palm Desert and the Five-Star Palm Desert Area Chamber of Commerce continue to be the Title Sponsors of the event. The all-day festivities include the interactive children’s area on Larkspur, VIP Main Street seats, cart show, Palm Desert Rotary pancake breakfast and even more!
