The 42nd Annual Meridian~KesslerTwilight Party & Home Tour took place June 5, 6 and 7.

500 neighbors and friends attended the Twilight Tour and Party in Forest Hills.

Over 2,000 people toured seven homes on Saturday and Sunday.

The Home Tour raised $75,000 Including $30,000 in sponsorships.

25% of the proceeds (over $18,000!) will fund the Vi Walker Neighborhood Grant program for non-profits and schools that serve our neighborhood residents.

The balance of the proceeds directly fund MKNA’s continual efforts to advocate on behalf of residents, encourage positve growth and ensure long–term stability and safety.

A huge “Thank you” to the homeowners who graciously opened their doors and allowed us to showcase their homes. Without the generosity and support of these families, this event would not be possible. Thanks, too, to our funders including headline sponsors Citizens 

Energy Group, IPL and California Closets. We’d also like to thank the volunteers and committee members who contributed their time and talents to the event. Committee Chair Bihl Beckstedt performed a nearly superhuman feat of endurance and creativity!
