2018 Home Tour Sets Revenue Record / by Michael Graves

The home tour committee would like to extend its effusive thanks to the sponsors, homeowners, volunteers, and party and tour goers who helped us set a new record with the 2018 tour – the neighborhood’s major fundraiser. The tour and preview party’s net revenue of $44,048 exceeded the goal by more than $10,000 and topped the 2016 tour proceeds by more than $12,000! Thanks to everyone who helped showcase our “hometown near downtown.”

Proceeds will support enforcement of deed restrictions, beautification, general operations. Further, up to 10 percent will be allocated to support the constable patrol. 

  • Total proceeds were $48,851. 
  • Home tour underwriting revenue - $16,090
  • Home tour ticket revenue - $23,301
  • Preview party underwriting revenue - $2,500
  • Preview party ticket & raffle revenue - $6,960

Thanks to the many generous in-kind donations from our wonderful neighborhood businesses, expenses were kept to approximately 10 percent of revenue at $4,802. 

Looking ahead: The committee will select 2020 home tour homes next spring/summer. If you’d like your historic home to be considered, please email limoss@comcast.net. While it may be a high bar, the committee would love your help in showing off our charming neighborhood to the rest of Houston and hopefully setting a new record next time.
