We've got two terrific events for you to enjoy this rainy Los Angeles afternoon!
Westchester Mental Health Guild Annual Holiday Home Tour Sunday, November 6, 2011 from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PMOn Sunday, November 6, the Westchester Mental Health Guild's annual Holiday Home Tour will feature five spectacular homes, all decorated for various holidays. The tour of homes will occur between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m.
These include a spectacular modern estate with endless views and amazing special features, including a snakeskin door, a goose feather chandelier and a gift-wrap room, that was featured in "Desperate Housewives of Westchester."
There is also a totally renovated beach bungalow, where you can see the “before” pictures, so you can see what work has been done. Two other houses are showcases for art and antiques, while another is a brand-new home perfect for raising a family. Each is unique and beautiful!
Ticketed guests visit the homes and then attend a festive reception. Guests also can do some early holiday shopping at the Guilded Cage Boutique at the reception. The reception and boutique will take place between noon and 5 p.m. (Please note that the tour itself concludes one hour earlier, at 4 p.m.)
The Holiday Home Tour is the Guild’s largest fundraiser of the year. All the proceeds from the event support the Airport Marina Counseling Service, a nonprofit, community-based mental health clinic that serves the LAX, South Bay and Westside areas of Los Angeles. Open seven days a week, AMCS annually provides thousands of hours of effective mental health counseling services, with a small paid staff of only six. AMCS provides services on a sliding fee scale. Between 300 to 500 children, adults and families are treated weekly. The clinic has established outreach programs to local elementary and high schools, providing child therapy and preventive intervention.
