Event and Fundraising16 Nov 2011 09:30 am

In the interest of transparency, we’d like to share with the community the results of our 2011 Home Tour. The net proceeds of this event will go to fund all of the great work that the Passyunk Square Civic Association has been doing to make our neighborhood a clean, beautiful, tight-knit and fun place to live. Also, if you missed the Home Tour you can read about it on the City Paper’s “The Great Indoors” blog which featured a few of the stops on the Tour.

Last year’s net profit was $3,466…for a net increase of $446. We had 121 tickets sold, a decrease of 36 from last year.  We had an increase of 4 paying sponsors from last year + 2 sponsors with gift cards, which we used for the raffle.

Great, great job to Kelly, Chris, Natalia, Pam and our Home Tour Committee Chair Angel!

And we can’t thank enough all of the people who opened their homes for this event and all of the businesses who sponsored the event to cover expenses and add to the fund raising total.

We’re looking forward to another great Home Tour in 2012! If you would like to offer your house for  next year’s Tour, please keep your Saturdays in late October/early November open and we’ll try to nail down a date as soon as possible!
