2016 Christmas Home Tour

2016 Christmas Home Tour

By Carol Roney V.P. Fundraising

The Christ Child Society Christmas tradition continues! We kicked off the Holiday season on December 2nd with our annual Christmas Home Tour. Renee and Michael Acho, Kim DelGrosso, Tim Easterwood, Terese and Chris Pero and Lisa and Tim White graciously opened their homes to a sellout crowd. Each homeowner’s personal taste was reflected in their beautifully decorated homes.

Beginning in September co-chairs Kim McNulty and Kelly Winkler worked with a talented committee; Nichola Hendry, Joi Leo, Laura Dabaldo, Liz Lee, Valerie George, Nora Hamill, Lori Gothard, Carol Roney, Mari MacKenzie, Katie Gantner, Bess Paradiso, Kim Cameron, Tara Nittis, Karen Kearns, Ann Jordan, Lanie Cosgrove, Elaina Ryder and Pam Surhigh to plan a wonderful day for our members, their families and friends.

The newly renovated Birmingham Country Club was the perfect setting for a day of shopping, enjoying a tasty lunch before or after meandering thru the homes which had their ‘halls all decked out’ for the holidays. Many Christmas gifts for family and friends were purchased. along with some gifts for ourselves!

This event could not be possible without the help of so many volunteers. Our faithful house captains; Molly Robinson, Carole Hill, Denise Trenary, Jo Lincoln, Barb McCarthy, Jill Dolik, Colleen Edmunds, Nancy Weinert, Molly Saeli and Gail Callaghan. Most have been doing this for years, and over 75 women who volunteered as docents in the homes kept the day flowing flawlessly. These ladies cheerfully greet our guests setting the tone for a fun filled, spirit filled day. They remain flexible, faithful and dedicated to our event year after year.

This event is a great undertaking. Our incredible co-chairs, committee members, house captains, docents, together with our members, their families and friends, continue to make this one very special day. We raised nearly $50,000 for our boys, our layette babies, and our 1ST and 2ND graders in Pontiac. Thank you so very much to all our sponsors, without them the success of our Home Tour would not be possible.
