4th SGI Tour of Homes Was Held on February 14, 2015
The fourth St. George Island Tour of Homes, held on Saturday, February 14, 2015, was a tremendous success!
Approximately 700 participants visited seven unique island homes, along with the Cape St. George Lighthouse and Keeper's House and the St. George Plantation Clubhouse. About one quarter of the participants were Floridians, with the balance of the crowd coming from 25 other states and Canada. Once again, Snowbird visitors made up almost half of the audience. Attendance exceeded that of the 2014 tour by more than 25 per cent, and proceeds more than doubled.
Contributing to the success of the event were the seven generous homeowners who graciously opened their homes for the tour; the more than 100 volunteers who worked as docents in the homes, drove shuttles to the Plantation gated community, took tickets, put up posters, etc.; and more than 70 businesses and individuals who purchased sponsorships.
Proceeds from the SGI Tour of Homes go toward maintenance and enhancement of the Cape St. George Lighthouse, the Keeper's House Museum, and St. George Lighthouse Park.
The fifth annual St. George Island Tour of Homes will be held on Saturday, February 13, 2016.
