West Orange residents celebrated the holidays early with the new Holiday Tour of Homes to benefit Eight Waves on Saturday, Dec. 17.
The holiday experience, presented by Meritage Homes and The Keewin Real Property Company, took place in Oakland and Winter Garden, where participants experienced a unique evening of touring four estate homes, all decked out in holiday finery.
The event included live music, and a food tour that began with appetizers and ended with decadent desserts.
The leaders of Eight Waves said they were hoping to reach their goal of about $30,000, with funds going directly to the programs. The money can help the after-school program, provide meals or hygiene items for families in need, assist with the community outreaches, and more.
