Tickets for the annual Holiday Tour of Homes to benefit the Northwest Georgia Family Crisis Center are on sale. The event is Saturday, Dec. 7.

Homeowners have graciously opened their homes to the tour. Their hospitality allows tour participants to enjoy a holiday tradition and obtain beautiful decorating ideas while supporting a worthwhile cause. Each home represents a very unique architectural and distinctive decorating flair.

Home tours begin at 5 p.m. The tour is self-paced and the homes can be visited and enjoyed in any order. The homes will close to the tour at 9 p.m. A buffet dinner will be served at The Farm from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Tickets may be purchased for the home tour only or the tour and buffet.

The event's theme "Peace on Earth Begins at Home" is a reflection of the center's mission. The Northwest Georgia Family Crisis Center's purpose is to end violence in the home by providing shelter, advocacy and support to victims while working in communities to change attitudes, beliefs and behaviors. The center provides emergency shelter for domestic violence victims and their children. In addition to a shelter, the center provides advocacy and client support services through offices in Dalton, Calhoun and Chatsworth. The center serves Gordon, Murray and Whitfield county residents.

The event is a major fundraising effort for the center. Tickets for the tour only are $35 per person; $60 tickets include the home tour and the buffet dinner. Tickets reservations may be made by calling (706) 278-6595.
