26th Annual Christmas Home Tour Set for December 8 + 9
Once again, the Child Advocates of Fort Bend Christmas Home Tour Committee has outdone itself in assembling a dazzling array of homes for guests to tour. Homeowners and their decorators have gone the extra mile to show off these homes in Christmas splendor. Tickets to the Christmas Home Tour are now available online at www.cafb.org and at Fort Bend County Randalls stores, the Sienna Plantation HomeFinder Center, CRU Home, Deep Roots Floral Studio, Feather & Nest Interiors and Twenty-Two Fifty Interiors. Tickets are $25. There is no better way to get into the holiday spirit than attending the 26thAnniversary Christmas Home Tour which is underwritten by the Fred and Mabel R. Parks Foundation.
All $350+ level sponsors are invited to the Sponsor Party on Sunday, December 3rd in one of the homes on the tour, allowing guests a sneak peek at what they will see. “Sponsorships are critical to the success of the Tour,” stated Child Advocates of Fort Bend Marketing Specialist Lisa Moore. “We work hard to keep our expenses low so that 94% of the money raised through this event goes directly toward programs and services for the children we serve. Without the help of our many generous sponsors, we wouldn’t be able to count on this event to help fund our programs.” If you would like to attend, you still have time to become a sponsor. Sponsorship opportunities from $100 – $10,000 are still available. For more information on sponsorships contact Lisa Moore at firstname.lastname@example.org or 281-344-5108.
The 2017 Tour will feature five distinctive homes in Long Meadow Farms, Sugar Creek, Sweetwater, Riverstone and Kitty Hollow Park beautifully decorated for the holidays with the help of professional decorators and designers. Tour guests will be treated to a rare glimpse of these lovely homes, and will enjoy festive entertainment, beautiful holiday decorations, tasty home-made cookies and refreshments.
The event runs Friday and Saturday from 10am until 4pm with a special candlelight tour on Friday night from 6pm to 9pm. One ticket provides admission to all five homes and can be used at any time during the tour. Directions to the homes are on the back of the ticket.
Want a glimpse of what you might see on the tour? You can check out 16 gorgeous wreaths designed by 16 decorators and volunteers online at www.cafb.org. The wreaths will be displayed in homes during the home tour. One of the wreaths can be yours – all you need to do is purchase a raffle ticket. For more information about the wreath raffle contact Lisa Moore at 281-344-5108. Raffle tickets are available at the Sienna Plantation Home Finder Center, all of the home on the Christmas Home Tour and by calling Child Advocates of Fort Bend at 281-344-5100.
