A goal of the Sunrise Park Neighborhood Organization is to help those living and working here to become friends and good neighbors. Special events bring us together, to meet our neighbors and have some fun.
Check back here often for our latest news and events to further our ongoing efforts to build an even stronger Sunrise Park neighborhood community.
The Sunrise Park Neighborhood Organization (SPNO) presented a $3,000 check to our friends at the Palm Springs Cultural Center (PSCC) during their Matching Funding Program. Our contribution is being matched dollar for dollar by the Supple Family Foundation. Our SPNO Board has requested that half of our gift be earmarked to support the Certified Farmer’s Market and the other half to support Palm Springs Cultural Center Programs. Pictured here are (left to right) David Secor, SPNO treasurer, Jerry Braun, board member, Michael Green, PSCC Executive Director, Eric Smith, Theatre Manager, and Rob McCann, SPNO board member. In recognition of our gift, the Theatre will dedicate two seats in the main theatre to Sunrise Park Neighborhood Organization as part of their “Best Seat in the House” program. Be sure to look for our SPNO seats when you next visit the theatre.
Our Charitable Contribution Provides Scholarships for Kids

Would you like to participate in the Modernism Week Tour for the Sunrise Park Neighborhood? We are looking for homes that reflect the mid-century modern design aesthetics and principles, both in exterior and interior architectural details and in interior décor and furnishings. The homes can either be original and well-preserved, accurately restored to original, or renovated to reflect the principles of mid-century modern design. Homes with a recognized architect or an interesting history are especially welcome.
The tour will be Sunday, February 18, 2024 between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. and tour hosts will be provided with a cleaning stipend. A celebratory cocktail thank-you party for the homeowners and other volunteers will follow the tour. Neighbors who have had their homes on tour have loved the experience and described it as very rewarding.
We are working with Modernism Week who will need to approve the homes on the tour by late August. If you are interested in having your home on the tour or would like more information, please contact David Secor via email at email@example.com.
