Home for the Holidays Home Tour


The Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce Businesswomen’s Division has made arrangements for a self-guided tour of eight fabulous homes in the East Gloucester area on Saturday, November 17, from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Many of these beautiful homes will be professionally decorated for the holidays.

The idea for a Home Tour came about as the women were brainstorming ideas to raise funds for the Carolyn O’Connor Scholarship, which is given annually by the Division to a woman changing careers or returning to the workforce after an absence, and needs to further her education to do so. The scholarship, named for the first Chairperson of the Businesswomen’s Division, was given out for the first time in 2006. A portion of the Home Tour proceeds will benefit the scholarship.

Tickets are $25.00 in advance and $30.00 on the day of the tour. Actual tickets and a map showing the location of the homes will be picked up on the day of the tour at the Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Contact the Chamber office at 978-283-1601 to order your advance tickets.
