Due to a shortage of homes for the event, the annual Holiday Home Tour on Thanksgiving weekend to benefit Northern Door Children’s Center is canceled for this year. In order for the event to be successful, it is necessary to have five homes. This year there were only three homeowners who were able to participate.
According to Executive Director Cindy Trinkner-Peot, “Holiday Home Tour is one of our largest fundraising events. Canceling it was not something we did lightly, as it leaves us with a $10,000 short fall in our 2016 budget. We simply don’t want to have the event unless we can do it with consistent quality. We are incredibly grateful to the three families who offered their homes for this year.”
On an exciting note, NDCC will have a brand-new website up and running in time for the winter giving campaign. This new website will allow for the convenience of making online donations using a credit or debit card, so supporting the work of Northern Door Children’s Center has never been easier.
Northern Door Children’s Center is planning to have Holiday Home Tour again in 2017.
