It’s time to start thinking about decking those halls. If you want a little holiday inspiration, take a tour of five homes — all decked out — on Dec. 2.
Tickets are now on sale for the Holiday Home Tour in Woodinville, a fundraiser for the Assistance League of the Eastside. It’s a self-guided tour of five homes that runs for one day only. Stop by from 10 a.m.-7 p.m. on Dec. 2. The homes are beautifully decorated for the season.
The event aims to inspire guests for the season while also raising money for those in need. Tour attendees visit the homes, admire the interior designs, and check out the intricate holiday displays. Best of all, it’s for a good cause.
Assistance League of the Eastside, based in Redmond, is an all-volunteer nonprofit helping local families affected by poverty, homelessness, assault, or domestic violence. The Holiday Home Tour raises funds for programs such as Operation School Bell, Help4Homeless, Assault Survivor Kits, and Starting Over Support.
“The Assistance League of the Eastside does amazing work in our community, from Operation School Bell, which provides new back to school clothes to kids in need, to helping the homeless and victims of assault and domestic violence,” said Monica Hart, a decorator of one of the homes in the tour this year.
Hart, a Kirkland resident, has participated in the tour before and once had her own home featured.
“I’m so excited to do something this holiday season that feeds the creative soul and nurtures others along the way. It’s a win-win!” she said.
She says participation is simple: “Buy a ticket, take the tour, take home some gorgeous holiday inspiration, and leave with the satisfaction of knowing you have helped someone in your community in need.”
Tickets are $35 and available online.
