The event is organized by the church’s Women’s Guild, and all proceeds will benefit local charities.

The Longboat Key Garden Club’s 39th annual Home Tour will highlight six unique and prominent residences on the key, from Country Club Shores up to Longbeach Village.
Each home has distinctive architectural style and design. One home was built to look like a French cheateau, one was designed to have a jungle-like feel and another was created to resemble a cruise ship. None of the six homes have ever been open to the public.
The event will raise money for the Garden Club’s programs and scholarships. Tickets are tax deductible and are available at Exit Art locations, Design 2000, LBK Chamber of Commerce and at each home on the day of the event.
If you go:
When: Saturday March 7 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
