Tickets went on sale today for The Central West End Association’s 47th Home & Garden Tour scheduled for Saturday and Sunday June 15 & 16, featuring historic homes on Kingsbury Place. After 45 years as an annual event, the popular tour, which traditionally draws hundreds of people from all over the region, transitioned to a biennial schedule after 2015.
Volunteer opportunities are available, including a role as House Captain (information about all that is involved follows*), or as a Guide ushering attendees throughout the homes and gardens—and perhaps sharing bits of history too. There are four 3-hour shifts available,** see information below.
As a thank you, volunteers will receive a complimentary ticket to tour the homes on Saturday or Sunday.
A Kick-Off Party, sponsored by realtor Ted Wight, is planned for Friday evening June 14 from 6 to 11 p.m. at the Kingsbury Place home shown above. The price of admission ($100 for CWEA members, $125 for non-members) includes food, an open bar, and a ticket to tour the homes on Saturday or Sunday. More information can be found on the website or Facebook page.
*House Captain responsibilities include staffing a home with volunteers for both Saturday/Sunday morning and afternoon shifts, scheduling, and communicating with CWEA Volunteer Liaison Lacey Mitchell to ensure all rooms/shifts are covered.
