Tipp City, OH—The Homes for the Holidays Tour co-sponsored by the Downtown Tipp City Partnership (DTCP) and Tipp-Monroe Community Services (TMCS) was a huge success. After a 3-year hiatus, this year’s event sold close to 400 tickets and generated over $1200 for TMCS. “Proceeds from this year’s Tour will go towards Community Service’s Relief Fund to help families in need this holiday season”, said Kathy Taylor, TMCS Director.

2006 marked 22nd year for the Tipp City tradition. Randy Luken and Ellen Cotterman started Tipp City’s first Home Tour in 1981. In previous years, the lighting of the Community Christmas Tree and a band concert followed the Home Tour. “The DTCP would like to bring back this Saturday evening tradition in 2007”, said Reed Spencer, Coordinator for the Homes for the Holidays Tour.

This year’s Home Tour Premier Sponsors included RE/MAX Professionals/Alliance, Countrywide Home Loans, Monroe Federal Savings & Loan Assn. and Evans Title Agency. With the success of this year’s Tour, the DTCP is already looking forward to the 2007 Home Tour. “We have already had several home-owner’s volunteer their homes as well as a few additional sponsors”, said Spencer. “In 2007, we are planning a bigger and better Home’s for the Holidays Tour”.
