Seven beautiful homes in Summit will open their doors to the public in support of Overlook Auxiliary's mission to help children with cancer and blood disorders.
The Overlook Auxiliary Kitchen Tour, held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 24, is a fundraiser that has been raising money for different areas of Overlook Medical Center for more than two decades. All proceeds from this year’s tour will benefit The Valerie Fund at Overlook Medical Center.
Co-Presidents Elsa Russell and Diane Swett explained that by showcasing some of the beautiful kitchens and homes in the Summit area, the Auxiliary hopes to raise significant funds for The Valerie Fund.
"We are grateful to Bouras Properties and Lois Schneider Realtor who once again co-sponsored this amazing event, as well as all the homeowners who by opening their homes are helping us spread awareness of The Valerie Fund to our community,” the co-presidents stated.
The Valerie Fund is a not-for-profit organization established in 1976 in memory of nine-year-old Valerie Goldstein by her parents, Ed and Sue. The mission of the fund is to provide support for the comprehensive health care of children with cancer and blood disorders.
The homes on the tour have all been designed and decorated by some of Summit's most elite architects, decorators, designers and builders.
Attendees can also enjoy special lunch deals at participating Summit restaurants by presenting their Overlook Kitchen Tour ticket or by mentioning the tour when making reservations. (See attached photo for additional details.)
Tickets are $40 each and are available at Lois Schneider Realtor, Overlook Downtown in Summit, Paperfolio in Summit, and The Gift Shop & Bloom in the Overlook Medical Center. Tickets can also be purchased online at www.oaux.org.
