ORIX Parade of Playhouses

NorthPark Center
August 5-21, 2011


The ORIX Parade of Playhouses at NorthPark Center, provides and opportunity to help abused and neglected children realize their dreams of finding safe, permanent homes. In its 15th year, the event raises public awareness about child abuse, the plight of children in foster care in Dallas County and ways to help.

During the two-week Parade of Playhouses, visitors to NorthPark purchase raffle tickets for chances to win one of many extraordinary, custom-built playhouses. The playhouse drawing is held during the event’s closing ceremony.

The 2011 ORIX Parade of Playhouses will feature 19 custom-designed playhouses. Raffle tickets may be purchased online and at NorthPark Center. Raffle tickets are available for $5 each or 5 for $20. Each $50 purchase receives an entry for a special drawing for 4 round trip Southwest Airlines tickets. All proceeds from Parade of Playhouses help Dallas CASA recruit, train and supervise volunteers who advocate for abused and neglected children in the protective care of the courts. Be the highest bidder and win this fabulous, custom-built playhouse designed by LRO Residential. 20 houses will be displayed at NorthPark during the showcase. The nautical house (shown above) will be auctioned, and the other 19 playhouses will be raffled.

The nautical design centers around the helm of a sailboat jutting out of side walls. The exterior features authentic details such as replica pier details, boat ropes and a porthole window. The playhouse is a traditional framed structure capped off with a standing seam metal roof which mimics the shape of sails on the high seas. Interior furnishings include a comfy denim chair and cozy rug on hand-scraped oak flooring. Built-in shelving offers plenty of space for an adventurer's favorite supplies. The interior of the playhouse features track lighting and plenty of natural light streaming through plexi-glass windows. The house is wired with two electrical outlets.
