The 23rd Annual GFWC Brandon Service League Holiday Home Tour on Saturday, December 5 from 10 a.m. 2 p.m. will prepare the community for the upcoming holiday season. Guests can tour three impressively decorated homes and may even get some decorating ideas for their own home.

This year’s tour will showcase three beautifully decorated homes in River Hills, Citrus Woods and Fish Hawk Trails.

“Each homeowner has their own unique style. Visitors to this year’s Holiday Home Tour will see everything from classic Christmas fare to modern holiday elegance,” said Bradlee Swanson, chair of the 2015 Holiday Home Tour.

Ticket holders will have the opportunity to shop at the Brandon Service League’s Holiday Gourmet Booth which features home baked treats. Guests can also enjoy holiday themed refreshments, and will not want to miss the Brandon Service League’s fantastic “Ghosts of Christmas Past” display where previously owned holiday decor will be available for purchase.

The GFWC Brandon Service League donates the funds raised at the Annual Holiday Home Tour to a number of local non-profits each year at their Annual Spring Event. “While the Holiday Home Tour is a great tradition and a wonderful part of the holiday season here in Brandon, the Holiday Home Tour is so much more than beautiful houses and pretty decorations. It is a way to show support for the Brandon community. It is a way to give back,” said Swanson.

Tickets to the Holiday Home Tour are $20 and are available on first-come, first-serve basis. Tickets can be purchased at The Law Offices of B. Lee Elam located at 101 E. Lumsden Rd. in Brandon. They can also be purchased at BodyWorks Health and Wellness Center located at 132 E. Bloomingdale Ave. in Brandon or from any member of the Brandon Service League.
