Junior League of North Little Rock Announces Home Tour Dates

 

North Little Rock, Arkansas, October 3, 2013--  The Junior League of North Little Rock announces its annual “Holiday Tour of Homes” in Sherwood’s beautiful, immaculate neighborhoods of Miller’s Crossing and Miller’s Pointe; it’s schedule to be held November 22nd to November 24th.

 

Participants will enjoy a self-guided tour, a favorite of North Little Rock citizens, showcasing spectacular homes that feature décor created by local designers.  Prior to the tour, a Progressive Dinner will be held on November 22nd.  While previewing the homes, tour-goers will experience wonderful food, cocktails, live entertainment, and our highly anticipated silent auction.  Guests enjoying the progressive dinner will be chauffeured by Arkansas Destinations and each home will provide a featured course, with the final course and dessert being served at the historic E. O. Manees House.

 

Tours of the homes will be held Saturday, November 23, from Noon to 6pm, Sunday, November 24, from Noon to 5pm.  General admission tickets are $10 and Progressive Dinner tickets are $50 and include the tour for Saturday and Sunday.  Tickets may be purchased in advance at www.jlnlr.org or by contacting the League office at (501) 372-1436.  Tickets will be available at the Home Tours entrance.

 

Organized in 1948, the Junior League of North Little Rock occupies the historic E. O. Manees House in downtown North Little Rock.  For 65 years, the Junior League of North Little Rock has been volunteering in North Little Rock and surrounding communities.  More information can be found by visiting www.jlnlr.org.  We are a member of the Association of Junior Leagues International, Inc.—an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.  Our purpose is exclusively educational and charitable.

 

All funds raised from our activities are used to help children become successful in life.  We do this with our current Between the Lines project, an early literacy project in support of the Arkansas Campaign for Grade Level Reading: providing home literacy kits and family reading journals to families; school supplies with our League Locker program; scholarships to area students; and grants to organizations in the community that serve children.

 

The Junior League of North Little Rock reaches out to women of all races, religions, and national origins who demonstrate an interest in and commitment to volunteerism – women building a better community.
