The Mansfield Women’s Club - (MWC) Holiday Home Tour is fast approaching. The popular event, scheduled Sunday, Dec. 3 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., will conclude the City’s Hometown Holidays 3-day weekend.
Attendees will enjoy holiday delights such as Christmas décor, the smell of fresh-baked gingerbread and Christmas cookies and the sound Christmas music.
“One thing for sure, these five beautiful homes will be a splendid way to enhance your holidays,” Mariyln Gerloff,said. “You might even run into longtime friends or the Pickle Queens along the tour. After all, this is one of the most popular social event of the year in Mansfield. Some groups are known to rent their own limo driver and bring along a basket of beverages and snacks to enjoy while touring the Mansfield homes on the tour.”
She said the tour makes a great gift for friends and family members, a terrific company outing for owners to treat staff members, and a delightful afternoon to spend with family and best friends.
MWC Fundraiser Committee Chair, Launa Barboza, and Tour of Homes Chair Kathleen Powers, have done an excellent job organizing this popular event.
“With all the wonderful decorated homes, the MWC Holiday Home Tour officially kicks off the Christmas Season, so you will not want to miss it! The Mansfield Women’s Club is a philanthropic 501(c) 3 non-profit organization where we focus on helping especially women and children. We could never take on this fundraising program without the support of our local sponsors,” said Launa Barboza.
