The third annual Holiday Home Tour at Bear Mountain Community Resort drew close to 500 people, with all proceeds going to lend a hand to those who need help.

The event, which featured tours of six sensational homes on Bear Mountain and a dinner and silent auction that sold out, raised more than $30,000, said organizer Cindy Scott, owner of KC Custom Designs. “We were all really excited to surpass our goal and be able to help more people.

The homeowners were so generous and hospitable in opening up their fabulous homes, and all of the feedback from those that took the tour was very positive.”

Scott also wanted to thank the sponsors and local businesses that supported the event. “The items were great, and the auction was a great success. Everyone who helped out was just phenomenal.

A director from Our Place said “with the demand for assistance increasing, the money we raised was greatly appreciated. It’s such a worthwhile effort when you know it helps those in need.”
