AFS Says 'Thanks'

Editor:

The Alameda Family Services League (AFSL) would like to thank the community for supporting AFSL’s 43rd annual Holiday Home Tour. Hundreds of tour-goers enjoyed tours of five of Alameda’s finest homes, a holiday dessert tea, a gift boutique, a raffle and a gourmet shop with all proceeds benefitting Alameda Family Services. The 2013 Holiday Home Tour was a success thanks to many community members and business owners who donated their time, energy and goods to guarantee a fun and festive fundraiser. First and foremost, thank you to the generous homeowners who shared their beautiful homes, wonderfully decorated for the season with tour-goers. Home docents and volunteers at the tea, gourmet shop, and boutique were invaluable in the Tour’s success. We also thank the donors of goodies, gifts and raffle items that made the tea, gourmet shop and boutique wonderful shopping experiences and the raffle a plentiful one. The AFSL board of directors and staff were also invaluable in making the tour a success. Our gratitude goes out to the Alameda Elks’ Lodge #1015 for its hospitality in providing the location for many of the day’s festivities and First Presbyterian Church of Alameda for hosting our holiday tea. A special thank you to our Home Tour sponsors: Farmers’ Insurance/Jeffrey Schwalm; Harbor Bay Realty; Gallagher and Lindsey Realtors; Catellus; Realtors Nancy and Steve Brandt; Alain Pinel Realtors and all other individuals and businesses that advertised in the tour booklet. Finally, to the Alameda community: thank you for your continued attendance and support of the AFSL’s Annual Alameda Holiday Home Tour. We appreciate and value your dedication to ensuring the children, individuals and families continue to receive the invaluable services that Alameda Family Services offers.
