Fifteen child-size playhouses, collectively referred to as the “Fairy Tale Playhouses,” are moving in downtown. To raise awareness of affordable housing while providing entertainment and shade to the smallest of waterfront visitors, the miniature homes carry a meaningful message. Through a partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Palm Beach County, whose mission is to build simple, decent and affordable housing for low to very low-income families around the world, the City of West Palm Beach will continue to include philanthropy in its seasonal “Summer in Paradise” campaign.
In West Palm Beach, we are putting people and their quality of life at the forefront of not only its design but also everything that we do,” said West Palm Beach Mayor Jeri Muoio. “I am so pleased that this year’s ‘Summer in Paradise’ will deliver measurable impact, and — through our partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Palm Beach County– it continues the community conversation about the need for affordable housing for all.”
On July 26, during Clematis by Night, the playhouses will be auctioned off to support the corresponding nonprofits.
The “Fairy Tale Playhouses” will be on display on the West Palm Beach waterfront at 101 N. Clematis Street, West Palm Beach Florida. For more information about “Summer in Paradise,” and other waterfront events, visit wpb.org/events.
