BY // 11.29.22

Now that pandemic fears have receded, the time-honored Kappa Kappa Gamma Holiday Pilgrimage Home Tour returns this Friday, December 2 and Saturday, December 3. It opens the doors on three grand dwellings in Tanglewood, each decorated to the tasteful hilt by professionals for the holidays. “Making Spirits Bright for Our Community” is the theme of the biennial fundraiser with proceeds going to the Kappa Kappa Gamma Charitable Foundation.

The event is chaired by Jeannie Rich Chandler and Julie Comiskey and honors Sue Brennig, Lacy Crain, Nancy Gordon and Anne Shallenberger. The festivities kick off Thursday evening with an invitation-only cocktail fête at the home of Charlotte and Bobby Orr.

Lacy Crain and Joe Galloway open their home at 414 Shadywood Road where Darlene’s Flower & Gift Shop has worked the holiday magic. Chairs for this home are Nancy Gordon, one of the honorees, and Stephanie Smith.

The holiday designer Michele Buckley of In Bloom has taken on the task of decorating the home of Leslie and Mark Hull at 5950 Stones Throw Road. Serving as chairs are Caroline Dannenbaum and Renee Davis.
