Palisades to Host HomeArama 2005 June 18 through July 10
Volunteers Needed

(May 28, 2005) The Palisades will be having its Grand Opening in June when it hosts HomeArama 2005. The gala event, presented by the Home Builders Association of Charlotte, opens June 18 and runs through July 10.

Hours are 10:00 am to 8:00 pm daily. (Gate closes at 6:30 pm.) Prices are $15 for adults, and $13 for seniors 62 and up. Kids 12 and under get in free. Two-for-one tickets are available on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the gate only. You also can get tickets at Harris Teeter stores for $13 (not valid with any other promotion). No credit cards and no ATM on site.

The Palisades is located in the Steele Creek community of southwest Mecklenburg County. It is south of NC Highway 49 near Lake Wylie. Click here for a map.

HomeArama 2005 will showcase seven magnificent designer furnished models in Ashton Oaks, a luxurious gated custom home enclave on the Nicklaus Design golf course. Within intimate walkways and stone monuments, master builders, artisans, interior designers, craftsmen, and landscape architects will create a unique experience. Charlotte's HomeArama is renowned as "The Most Elegant Home Exposition in America."

HomeArama is seeking volunteer hosts. Daily shift times for volunteers are 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., 1:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. over the duration of the show. Rhein Interests, host of HomeArama 2005, will give all shift volunteers two VIP tickets to HomeArama to use at their leisure. The tickets for the volunteers were graciously donated by The Home Builders Association of Charlotte. Rhein will also accept proposals from local non profit organizations. “This is a great way to participate in one of the region’s most exciting annual events, plus see the show for free,” said Jenni Willis, marketing director for The Palisades. Willis added that volunteers will be responsible for greeting HomeArama guests at the show homes, managing the flow of traffic within the homes and answering questions about each home’s features. The builders and interior designers will provide the volunteers with details for each home. For additional information, or to volunteer, contact Jenni Willis at (704) 527-2333 Ext. 115.

The Palisades is a serene 1,500-acre master planned community within a high woodland peninsula above Lake Wylie, located off NC Highway 49 near the Buster Boyd Bridge --
destined to be Charlotte's premier amenity oriented development. Sensitive land planning considerations protect the watershed environment, preserving much of the site's natural features. The plan includes a Nicklaus Design championship golf course, private country club, town center for shopping and services, equestrian center, soccer-training complex, and miles of trails and paths - a combination unique to the region.
