We’re rapidly approaching one of my favorite weekends of the year, and undoubtedly one of the biggest weekends of the year for the Heights. If you don’t already know, this coming weekend is the Houston Heights Association’s 2017 Spring Home & Garden Tour, an event that showcases some of the neighborhood’s most impressive homes, all the while raising funds for an organization which does so much for the Heights. It is through the HHA that the Heights continues to evolve, grow, and prosper, with an eye to its future but a lasting connection to its past, and it is events like this which allow the HHA to continue to move forward.
As a passionate Heights homeowner, business owner, and 2017-2018 President of the HHA, not to mention a lover of beautiful and historic homes, I simply can’t wait for the next chapter of this wonderful neighborhood tradition to be written just a few short days from now.
The theme for this year’s Spring Home & Garden Tour is Heights Hidden Beauties, as it will feature six neighborhood homes full of impressive architectural components, interior design elements, and special touches that only become apparent once you step inside their front doors. The tour, which takes place from Noon to 6 PM on both Saturday, April 8th and Sunday, April 9th, offers a combination of historic homes with updates and stunning new constructions. Tickets can be purchased online up until 5 PM on Thursday, April 6th right here.
Saturday and Sunday’s home tour may be considered the focal point of the weekend, but for me, Friday night’s Candlelight Dinner and Auction is the highlight. The Candlelight Dinner kicks off this amazing weekend with a glorious evening of drinks, gourmet food (a special dinner by Jim Benton), music (live performance by Cap City Band) and an exclusive preview of the homes featured on the weekend’s tour. Then of course there’s the auction portion of the evening. I’ll have the honor of chairing this year’s live auction, which caps the evening, but there will be a silent auction going on throughout the night as well. Among the wide variety of items to bid on will be some of the sculptures from Art Trek, the curated sculpture exhibit along the Heights Boulevard esplanade, including one of my favorite installations “Above the Muddy Water” by Randall Mosman.
The dinner and auction will be this Friday, April 7th from 7 to 11 PM at Silver Street Studios, with the exclusive home tour preview taking place beforehand from 5 to 7 PM. Individual tickets or tables can be purchased right here up until 5 PM on Tuesday, April 5th.
I hope you’re able to join us at some point this weekend to show your support for the Heights, the HHA, and most importantly, to take part in what promises to be a fun-filled weekend!This entry was posted in Recognize, Rediscover, Revisit
