INDIAN WELLS, CA – Miramonte Resort & Spa will kick off its festive Desert Holidays program on Nov. 1 with the availability of gingerbread lots for sale for Miramonte’s Annual Gingerbread Village. Gingerbread “home builders” are invited to use their imagination to create confectionary structures for display and entry into a contest. Gingerbread houses will be judged in five categories – from professionals to kids – with prizes for each and an overall grand prize of a three-night stay at the luxurious Mediterranean-style resort. Winners will be announced at the Gingerbread Village Grand Opening on Friday, Nov. 23.
Gingerbread Village lot prices range from $20 to $50. All proceeds from gingerbread lot sales are provided to Shelter From The Storm, the Valley’s only dedicated provider of services to victims of domestic violence. Gingerbread houses must be submitted by Nov. 19 for the final construction of the village, which will remain on display through the holidays.
Opportunities at Miramonte to support Shelter From The Storm include two toy and gift drives in conjunction with Desert holiday events. At Miramonte’s “Spa La La La La” party at THE WELL on Dec. 6, and at the “Desert’s Largest Holiday Extravaganza” on Dec. 13, guests are invited to bring a new, unwrapped toy for a child or a personal gift for a woman in the shelter.
