Home Tour raises money to help girls

It takes a village to put on a holiday home tour, and more than 100 Danville-Alamo AAUW members are volunteering as docents in the five area homes that are open from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. today and tomorrow. Tickets are available at Leku Eder, 178 E. Prospect Ave., Danville, or Design Concepts, 3135 Danville Blvd., Alamo (Yardbird's Shopping Center), on the days of the tour. The ticket is a map with the home addresses; they can be visited on either day and in any order.

From the profits of last year's tour, AAUW was able to provide a total of $8,500 for six college women who grew up in this area, as well as sending six middle school girls to a week-long residential summer camp held at various universities to further their interest in math and science, at a cost of $4,500.

Home tour tickets cost $35; they are $25 for seniors 65 and older. For questions, contact Mary at 831-1784. Peasant and the Pear, Piatti's, Pascal's and Esin Restaurant are all offering specials to AAUW Holiday Home Tour ticket holders.
