Imperial Decks Halls for CASA Christmas Home Tour
As if Christmas weren’t exciting enough, one home in Imperial will be lavishly decked out for the 31st annual CASA Christmas Home Tour.
The treasured holiday tradition invites guests to tour homes beautifully decorated for the holidays. Tours will take place from 10 a.m.- 4 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Dec. 9 and 10. An evening tour is scheduled from 6-9 p.m. Dec. 9. Tickets are $30 per person. A special ticket and wreath raffle bundle are available for $60. The bundle includes one ticket plus three wreath raffle tickets.
This year’s tour will feature homes extravagantly decorated by professional interior designers and florists. Guests will be greeted at the front door by volunteer hosts who will direct them along a pre-arranged route through the home. Festive entertainment and homemade holiday treats will be provided. In addition to the gorgeous home in Imperial, ticket holders will be able to tour homes in our sister community of Riverstone as well as Aliana and First Colony.
Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) is an arm of Child Advocates of Fort Bend, a nonprofit agency serving child victims of sexual abuse, physical abuse and neglect. A CASA volunteer is assigned to every child in CPS custody in Fort Bend County — an accomplishment very few counties have achieved.
CASA volunteers provide a voice for children in the courts. They meet regularly meet with their charges as well as with their teachers, doctors, foster and biological family and others in the child’s life to assess their medical, educational, physical and emotional health and needs. Their written findings are presented to a judge at every court hearing.
The program serves approximately 250 to 300 children annually.
The home tour is one of the organization’s biggest fundraisers, attracting more than 2,000 guests per year. Tickets can be purchased online. Ninety-four percent of the proceeds go directly toward providing services for abused and neglected children. Holiday t-shirts are also available and fun to wear as you ”ooh and aah” your way through the homes.
