Thanks for another fine home tour

Editor:
On Dec. 8, the Alameda Family Services League hosted its 48th Annual Alameda Holiday Home Tour, a fundraiser for Alameda Family Services. This year’s tour was a resounding success with more than 500 tour goers enjoying the fabulous homes, delicious tea and festive Gourmet Shop, raffle and Holiday Boutique. The tour would not have been possible without the support of our wonderful community members.

First and foremost, thank you to the creative, talented and generous homeowners who opened their homes to guests. Cindy, Lisa, Neal and Karin, Amy and Brad, and Brad and Aryn: Thank you so much for your generosity — you truly made this tour possible and unforgettable.

Our team of more than 100 volunteers also deserve a resounding ovation! Our Head Home Docents, home docents, tea volunteers, Santas, musicians, cookie and treat makers, and volunteers and Holiday Boutique vendors at the Elks Lodge were incredibly generous with their time and talent. We are also so grateful for the support and encouragement of the Alameda Family Services staff and board of directors.

In addition to volunteer hours, community members and local businesses stepped up to the plate with sponsorships, ads and raffle items. We are especially grateful for the folks at Alameda Elk’s Lodge No. 1015 and First Presbyterian Church of Alameda for their hospitality. 

Additionally, a heartfelt thank you to our wonderful Alameda Family Services League team. You are truly the magic-makers and the reason why Alameda Family Services League is able to present this beautiful fundraiser year-after-year for such a wonderful cause.

Finally, thanks to our wonderful Alameda community for your support! Every ticket bought, every goody purchase, every chance you entered in the raffle means more community members can access the invaluable programs and services provided by Alameda Family Services. Be sure to visit our Alameda Holiday Home Tour Facebook page and alamedaholidayhometour.com for the final amount raised during the 2018 tour. 

We look forward to seeing you next year, always the second Saturday in December, for the 49th Annual Holiday Home Tour!
