event began 28 years ago as a fundraiser to keep the agency’s doors open. A
group of volunteers, many of whom are still involved in the agency, opened
their homes, decorated for Christmas, baked cookies and charged admission. The
tour was a success and has since become a Fort Bend County holiday tradition
the two days of the Tour, more than 2,000 guests will tour private Fort Bend
County homes all decked out for Christmas. This year’s homes are still being
finalized, but the neighborhoods (as of this printing deadline) are Sweetwater,
Alkire Lake, Sugar Creek and Sienna Plantation. More than 1,000 volunteers will
help as hosts and hostesses in the homes, serving as entertainers or by baking
cookies. This is a spirited community event, but most importantly it is a
fundraiser. 94% of all of the money raised through this event goes directly to
programs and services that benefit the children served by Child Advocates of
Fort Bend. In 2018, the agency served 2,586 children and families, which was
23% higher than the prior year due to a huge increase in reports of child
abuse. Your support of this event is essential to helping abused and neglected
children in our community.
