ASHEBORO — The popular Holiday Tour of Homes is returning, this time with Family Crisis Center as the host agency.
This year’s event is scheduled for Sunday, Dec. 4, from 1-5 p.m., the first post-COVID tour.
Kim Luther, director of development for FCC, said Hospice of Randolph County had organized the event for several years and “they asked if we could. We were honored to do that.”
Holiday Tour of Homes showcases homes, businesses or agencies decorated for the Christmas season. It’s been a popular event for a number of years, previously held by the Volunteer Center of Randolph County.
This year’s homes, all in Asheboro, are:
- The Clay and Stephanie Phillips home at 606 Lexington Road.
- The Prayer Pony Foundation at Brigman Farm, 1629 Brower’s Chapel Road.
- Commerce Lofts, a Luckenbach Property, 134 Sunset Ave. (above Taco Loco).
- The Beth and Neal Robbins home at 863 Ann’s Court.
Each of the four venues has a different makeup than the others, providing tour goers with something new at each location.
“This will be one of our fund-raisers,” Luther said. “We’ll check it out the first year and see how it goes.”
She said the FCC has formed a committee with eight members to serve with the event.
“We’re excited,” Luther said. “It’s a great thing for everybody. Once it catches on, people are more likely to want to participate. We’ve already had people to say, ‘Keep me in mind for next year.’ ”
Tickets at the door are $15. Advance tickets are $12 and can be purchased these locations, all in Asheboro:
- Brightside Gallery, 170 Worth St.
- Burge Flower Shop, 625 S. Fayetteville St.
- Four Saints Brewing Company, 218 S. Fayetteville St.
