Community Corner: Royal Family KIDS decks the halls for a good cause
By AMY ASMAN
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. Money raised at the event will help foot the bill for an annual summer camp, as well as a club and mentoring program during the school year.
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.
For more information, call 264-0731or visit santamaria.royalfamilykids.org. Donations can also be sent to Royal Family KIDS of Santa Maria, 751 E. Foster Road, 93455.
