While you are busy trying to escape the heat, Child Advocates of Fort Bend’s Christmas Home Tour committee is busy preparing for its 28th annual Christmas Home Tour on December 13 and 14, 2019.

 

This 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 ever since.

 

Over 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.

 

Sponsorships of $100 - $10.000 are now available. Please consider joining as a sponsor. It is a delightful event for a worthy cause. To become a sponsor or for more information, please contact Lisa at lmoore@cafb.org.
