After a three-year hiatus and to celebrate the 30th Annual Legacy of Caring, the Women’s Guild Tour of Homes is being brought back. Five fabulous homes will open their doors to welcome guests. No doubt many tour goers will discover inspirational ideas to make their own homes shine a little brighter.
The Tour will take place May 18 and 19, RAIN OR SHINE! Mark your calendars now for Big Canoe’s salute to springtime. What a wonderful time to invite friends and family to share our beautiful mountains! Purchase your tickets at the Legacy ticket table at the Chapel for morning or afternoon on either Friday, May 18 or Saturday, May 19. In order to see all five homes, we recommend that you begin your tour no later than 1 p.m. Tour homes will begin to close at 4 p.m. Tickets will also be sold from the Ticket Tent on the Chapel patio on tour days.
