3 tony Tanglewood dwellings open their doors for Houston's oldest holiday home tour
Since 1941, the Kappa Kappa Gamma Charitable Foundation of Houston and the Kappa Kappa Gamma Houston Alumnae Association have hosted the biennial Holiday Pilgrimage Home Tour. It's allowed guests into some of Houston's finest addresses to see their holiday decor, while also raising millions of dollars for area charities.
The home tour is back this year, with a focus on Tanglewood. Three homes are available for viewing, part of Kappa Kappa Gamma's Making Spirits Bright for Our Community campaign. Homes are open Friday and Saturday, December 2 and 3 from 10 am to 4 pm.
Go inside 414 Shadywood Rd., 5936 Deerwood Dr., and 5950 Stones Throw Rd. to see examples of beautiful architecture, lovely holiday displays, and gracious living. This is an opportunity to gather inspiration for seasonal decorating and learn more about what makes each home unique.
Tickets are $25 each and can be purchased online, as well as at fine retailers such as Berings, Briargrove Pharmacy & Gifts, and Memorial Designs.
Those who purchase tickets online must bring their receipt to the first home they tour, where it will be exchanged for the number of tickets purchased. The home tour is self guided, and guests may begin at any of the homes and proceed at their leisure to each during the tour's hours.
Kappa Kappa Gamma is a national sorority, with chapters at colleges around the country and a history dating back more than 150 years. Houston's Kappa Kappa Gamma Alumnae Association was founded in 1928 and boasts more than 900 members in the Bayou City.
