Holiday House Chair Tracy McGee of the Fort Myers Woman’s Community Club recently presented a check for $26,970 to Executive Director Jennifer Nelson of the Uncommon Friends Foundation from its 61st Annual Holiday House. As every year, the historic Burroughs and Langford-Kingston homes at 2505 and 2500 First Street are decorated in miles of ribbon, garland and lights, recreating the sparkle and richness of traditional holiday décor.
“We appreciate all the work the Fort Myers Woman’s Community Club puts into planning and executing the annual Holiday House fundraiser as its special gift of love to the community and to raise money for historic home maintenance year around,” said Uncommon Friends Foundation Executive Director Jennifer Nelson. “Each year’s event is always unique and spectacular. Planning is already underway for 2018 Holiday House open from December 7 through 22.”
