Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital will host its 38th Annual Holiday Home Tour and Preview Gala fundraiser on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 30 and Dec. 1.
In 1981, a fundraising project was established by the Hospital Auxiliary, with Betty Burke as chairwoman, which became the first Holiday Home Tour.
In 1982, the Home Tour League was founded to expand the volunteer base and promote participation from the community.
In 1990, a Preview Gala held on the evening before tour day was added to celebrate the Home Tour League’s tenth anniversary. The Gala was so successful that it has become an annual event.
Since its inception, the Home Tour League has focused on fundraising for Women’s Services. To date, the League has raised more than $1,000,000, which includes naming two rooms in the Emergency and Trauma Center and a Nurses Station in the new Patient Tower.
One of their most recent and gratifying accomplishments has been the Kim and Steven Ullman Neonatal Intensive Care Unit which opened in 2012.
In 2018, the Home Tour will designate funds to the Center for Women and Newborns in the new Patient Tower.
This year’s tour features a total of four beautiful homes in the community. Three homes are located in the Southern Oaks area of Stevenson Ranch, and one is in Westridge.
“Home Tour is so thrilled to present four lovely local homes for viewing this year.” said Debra Weyand, Home Tour president. “Our homeowners and decorators are already in full swing preparing a wonderful tour filled with “Holiday Magic” for our community.”
Participating home tour decorators include a very special lineup of gifted individuals: Patrick Tremblay of Tremblay House of Design, Karen Reilly of Robella Creations, along with hand-picked design students from COC, Debbie Filippelli and Bernard Underwood of An Intimate Place/B.U. Designs.
“We are so fortunate to have such a dedicated support group who not only work tirelessly to raise funds for Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital, but who also do it with such style,” said Marlee Lauffer, president of the Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital Foundation.
“The Home Tour Preview Gala and Tour is the perfect event to kick off the holidays in the Santa Clarita Valley,” Lauffer said. “We are also grateful for the homeowners who generously open up their lovely homes for the tour, helping us to provide quality healthcare for our community.”
