Sather Sponsors July 4 Home Decorating Contest

Sotheby’s Realtor Joan Sather will once again sponsor PAPA’s Fourth of July Patriotic Home Decorating Contest, which debuted in 2008.

All Pacific Palisades homes are eligible. To enter, residents must simply upload a photo of their decorated home to the “Pacific Palisades Fourth of July Celebration” page on Facebook, or email the photo to info@palisadesparade.org, and it will be uploaded to the Facebook page.

From those photos, the 12 most promising homes are chosen, and judges visit each address, usually on July 3.

The winner receives an American flag that has been flown over the nation’s Capitol, gift certificates, a story in the Palisades News and participation in judging the 2017 contest.

Last year’s winner was the Jack and Sharon Sutton home on Galloway, which featured a three-generation decorating effort that involved their son Doug, his wife Suzanne and grandson Zach, who were visiting from New Jersey.

In addition, Sather handed out the inaugural Sponsor’s Award, presented to “the home which best expresses effort above and beyond.” Scott and Susan Corwin and their son Joshua were the winners.

Sather, who has been a realtor in the Palisades for 27 years, has been sponsoring the contest since 2012.
