THUNDER BAY, ON ---- October 28, 2010 ------ The 10th Annual is the perfect warm up for the holiday season..
Last year over 800 people supported the Art Gallery through their purchase of House Tour tickets and attendance.
Four executive homes, as well as the Art Gallery, are given the royal decorating treatment by five professional businesses.
The public gets a chance to take a self-guided tour of each home to discover what’s hot in the latest decorating trends.
The Candlelight Tour is unique, taking place Saturday, November 13, from 6pm – 9pm, culminating in an enchanting reception at the Art Gallery from 8pm – 10pm.
The House Tour is one of the Gallery’s major annual fundraising events. All money raised stays at the Gallery to assist in the delivery of Gallery programs.
A new corporate sponsor has come on board this year. It’s the accounting firm of Grant Thornton LLP, and the Gallery is most grateful for their financial support.
The tour couldn’t happen without the generous donation of time, expertise and decorations from these local businesses: Victoria’s Cupboard, Vanderwees Green Houses, Elegant Impressions, ‘Twas the Month Before Christmas and Willow Springs.
And of course, the Gallery recognizes the home owners themselves who have generously allowed their homes to be the showcased for this fundraising event.
