Visitors to the Trophy Club area soon will find themselves cast into a winter wonderland as they stroll through a select group of homes in the Trophy Club Women’s Club Annual Christmas Tour of Homes.
The event is from 3-6 p.m., Dec. 7. This is the 29th straight year that Trophy Club Women’s Club has hosted the tour. It benefits a host of Tarrant and Denton County charities.
"Families and visitors come from all over, even different states, and we are really proud of that," said TCWC event chair Terri Lane of the TCWC.
Five homes, four in Trophy Club and one in Southlake, will be on display this year. Among the themes at each are:
Nativity scenes from all over the world, Santa’s Workshop, and an outdoor wildlife scene on the patio.
Wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling decorations, a blazing fireplace, a towering Christmas tree, and a 10th-green view of the Ben Hogan Trophy Club golf course.
Life-size nutcrackers, a soaring spiral staircase, a special tree showing the owner’s love of Texas A&M, a country kitchen.
An ice castle, a touch of Irish, and a truly Texas Christmas
"We highlight each homeowner’s unique style," Lane said.
This year, the event expanded to include a home in Southlake.
"That’s as close to Trophy Club as you can get," Lane said. "That’s kind of neat that we are spreading out."
Grapevine Lincoln will display a new Lincoln at each of the five homes, along with several at the Premier Academy, which is providing daycare for the event from 3-8 p.m. At Premier, the two newest models will be available for test drives, and with each test drive, Grapevine Lincoln will donate $20 to the Tour of Homes.
And one lucky person could win a $1,000 Visa gift card.
There will also be a silent auction, back by popular demand, and guests can bid on items from 3-7:45 p.m. at Premier, which is anchoring the event. Appetizers and handcrafted ornaments, along with cookbooks will be featured from 4-8 p.m..
Among the charities that will benefit from the event are the Roanoke Food Pantry, Children’s Advocacy Center, and Battered Women’s Foundation. Also, Lane said a new volunteer component benefiting from the event is the Regional Animal Adoption Center in Keller.
Tickets can be bought at Tom Thumb and Sassy Flamingo in Trophy Club, at Roanoke Pharmacy, Sadie’s Resale Shop, Theresa’s Resale Shop, through PayPal or from TCWC members for $20 in advance of the event. The day of the event they can be bought for $25 at Premier Academy or each tour home.
