SCUGOG: The Port Perry Town & Country House Tour was founded in 2009 by Port Perry United Church Community Outreach, as a charitable event. All proceeds now support five very important local charities - Joanne's House, Community Care Durham, the YWCA Durham's Second Stage Housing for Women, Big Brothers Big Sisters North Durham, and North House.
The 8th annual event takes place Saturday, September 17th, 2016, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
The House Tour has raised almost $80,000 for the charities over the past eight years. The number of visitors has increased over that time, and this year we plan to sell all 500 tickets, and raise over $10,000 for our charities!
There are eight exciting venues that have been graciously donated for the tour. Each demonstrates the varied and interesting architecture found within and around our community, with lots of pleasant surprises for tour visitors.
Each ticket includes a stop at the church, where the House Tour Cafe will be serving complimentary light refreshments and homemade baked goods, throughout the day.
The House Tour organizing committee has been working since March to prepare for this event, and has a large team of over 100 energetic volunteers; local community residents who are offering their time, expertise, and resources to help make this event a success. As a non-for-profit volunteer organization, every sponsorship dollar or product donated helps defray the costs we incur, and maximizes the donation we can offer our chosen charities.
Tickets are $25 each in advance, and can be purchased at: Royal LePage, Frank Real Estate (268 Queen Street, Port Perry – 905-985-9898); Port Perry United Church (294 Queen Street, Port Perry – 905-985-2801); or YWCA Durham (1 McGrigor Street, at Simcoe, Oshawa – 905-723-9922).
Come and join the fun. You will be assured of a wonderful day full of amazing architecture, lovely gardens, and inspiring decorating. If that isn't enough, you will also make a positive impact on youth, women, men, and the elderly within our community.
