Homeowners and the 2021 Christmas Home Tour Committee are
busy with final preparations for the 30th annual Child Advocates of
Fort Bend Christmas Home Tour. Set for Friday, December 10 and Saturday,
December 11, the tour will feature homes in Sienna, First Colony Sweetwater and
Hillcrest Estates in Richmond. Tickets are available online at www.cafb.org and at several Fort Bend locations
including the Randalls locations in Pecan Grove and on Highway 6 in Sugar Land.
A complete list of ticket locations is available at https://www.cafb.org/events/home-tour-2/home-tour-tickets/.
One $30 ticket allows entry to all homes during tour hours, allowing busy
guests to see the Tour all at once or visit a few homes each day, depending on
their schedule. Tour hours are Friday and Saturday from 10am until 4pm and
Friday evening from 6pm until 9pm.
There will be refreshments at all the homes – home baked
cookies in two houses, appetizers at one courtesy of Dream Dinners Missouri
City, and an ice cream cart at another home, courtesy of Southern Ice Cream. In
addition, Santa will be at one of the homes for photos and there are designated
selfie photo spots at two of the other homes for guests to take their own event
photos during the tour to share on their personal social media accounts.
annual wreath raffle features 19 wreaths that have been donated by area
designers and volunteers. View the wreaths online at www.cafb.org. The wreaths will also be featured
in homes on the Tour. Raffle tickets are $10 each and can be purchased online
or at the homes. You decide which wreath you would like to win. Winning tickets
will be pulled on Tuesday, December 14 at noon. A ticket bundle is available
for $60, which gives you a ticket plus 3 wreath raffle chances. For more
information call 281-344-5100.
The Home Tour is a fun event but, most importantly, it is a
fundraiser. In fact, the Home Tour is one of Child Advocates of Fort Bend’s largest
fundraisers and 94% of the money raised by the tour goes toward programs and
services. “By sponsoring or purchasing a Home Tour ticket, you can help us
ensure that all child victims of abuse get the therapy and healing services
they desperately need,” stated Child Advocates of Fort Bend CEO Ruthanne
Sponsorships are still available for $100 - $10,000. To
become a sponsor or to volunteer or for more information go to https://www.cafb.org/events/home-tour-2/
