The tour will feature 8 homes, many of which are owned by accomplished female entrepreneurs, executives and business leaders. Although no two are alike, the common thread is women who surround themselves with things that reflect their travels, interests, work, and world views. This event will be a point of reflection upon the importance of the homes featured.

“In its 87th year the House Tour has really become a signature St. John’s event that the whole community looks forward to and comes together to support,” declared event Co-Chair, Isles. “This event brings together dozens of sponsors, over 100 volunteers, a dedicated hard-working committee and gracious homeowners, to raise funds to support the ministries of St. John’s Church and make a meaningful impact in the lives of those that St. John’s serves.” Added Co-Chair Stavish.  Since its inception the Georgetown House Tour has raised millions of dollars to support charities that serve those in need in the Georgetown community and beyond.

“It’s an exciting year with two talented young women, Hannah and Kelly, leading our tour” says Reverend Gini Gerbasi, Rector at St. John’s Church Georgetown. “The Georgetown House Tour provides vital funding for St. John’s ministries that support the most vulnerable members of our community.  None of this would be possible without the help and support from so many members of our church, friends and Sponsors.”  This year’s Platinum sponsor is Long & Foster Real Estate Company, and TTR Sotheby’s International Realty will be a Gold sponsor along with Doyle New York as a Bronze level sponsor.
