On Dec. 7, five of Santa Maria Valley’s most beautiful homes will be decked out for the holidays. From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., local residents will get to glimpse this magazine-spread-worthy decor as part of the 2013 Holiday Home Tour. In the spirit of the season, the tour will benefit Royal Family KIDS of Santa Maria, a nonprofit organization for area foster children.

According to a press release from the organization, Royal Family KIDS is the nation’s leading nonprofit network of camps for abused, neglected, and abandoned children ages 6 through 12.

Tickets for the tour cost $20 through Dec. 6 and are available at all Rabobank locations, a là Carte, Company’s Coming, Old Town Market, Déjà vu Antiques at the Loading Dock, Lucia’s Wine Co., and Rendezvous.

The tour is for adults and children ages 12 and older.
