What is the Perth and District Home and Garden Tour?
It is a one-day event held in July that will showcase some of our community’s most beautiful homes and gardens. This year we have 8+ gardens, including two also featuring homes. The day also includes high tea, live music, and art exhibits to enrich the day. The Home and Garden Tour is the club’s primary fundraiser.
What is the purpose of the Home and Garden Tour?
CFUW works to ensure that all girls and women have equal opportunities and equal access to quality education within a peaceful and secure environment, where their human rights are respected. All funds raised by the Home and Garden Tour will be used to provide financial aid to women and girls living in the district who are pursuing post-secondary education.
When Is the Tour?
The Home and Garden Tour is Saturday July 6th, 2024, from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm.
Has CFUW past fundraising been successful?
Each year, prior to its cancellation due to COVID, the club’s Heritage Christmas House tour generated significant funds, allowing us to offer financial aid to:
under-resourced local young women pursuing post-secondary education or
to women returning to the workforce or making a career change and needing to upgrade their education.
In addition, the proceeds funded donations to young children’s literacy programs and other education-related initiatives in libraries, schools, and other institutions.
