28th annual event set for mid-December
Tickets to the 28th annual Child Advocates of Fort Bend Christmas Home Tour are now available online at CAFB.org and at several Fort Bend locations including the Randalls locations in Pecan Grove and on Highway 6 in Sugar Land. The Christmas Home Tour features private homes in Fort Bend County beautifully decorated for Christmas. Neighborhoods and homes vary each year, so guests who have been to the Home Tour before are guaranteed to see something new each year. This year’s homes are in Alkire Lake, Sugar Creek, Sweetwater, and Sienna. One 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. The Tour runs Friday, December 13 from 10 AM until 4 PM and 6 PM until 9 PM and Saturday, December 14 from 10 AM until 4 PM.
“We’ve got amazing remodeled homes and a lot of fun things in store for guests this year,” stated Child Advocates of Fort Bend Development Director Lisa Moore. “There will be refreshments in all the homes, and we’re offering photos with Santa this year as well.”
While the Home Tour is a fun event, it is also a fundraiser–one of Child Advocates of Fort Bend’s largest, with 94 percent of the money raised by the tour going 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 Mefford.
