“I am happy to share my home for this year’s tour,” said Sally Davis. “I believe Health Care Access fulfills an important need in Douglas County. It’s my personal belief that all people deserve quality health care despite their economic means. My holiday theme this year is the Tree House as I’ll have two to three small decorated trees in each room of my home. I’m looking forward to sharing the holiday spirit with all the guests!”
“The Holiday Homes Tour has been become an important part of the holiday season in Lawrence,” said Kris Marsh, Holiday Homes Tour chair. “So many people say it’s their tradition to attend the tour every year with family and friends. With our unique mix of homes this year, I think tickets may sell out early.”
This is the 13th year for the Holiday Homes Tour. With a purchased ticket, people can tour the homes, which are decorated for the holiday season.
Tickets can be purchased online now at http://www.healthcareaccess.org/holiday-homes-tour/ and will be available Friday, October 13, at HyVee Customer Service locations in Lawrence and at the administrative offices for Health Care Access in the United Way Building, 2518 Ridge Court (Monday to Friday, 9 – 11 a.m.).
The Holiday Shop, Bake Sale and Basket Raffle will also be open the day of the event, Dec. 3, beginning at 11 a.m. at the Smith Center at Brandon Woods, 4730 Brandon Woods Terrace. These events are open to the public and do not require a ticket.
“Make the Holiday Homes Tour a part of your annual traditions and help us provide a health home for those without insurance,” said Health Care Access CEO Beth Llewellyn.
