Have you ever driven through Historic Brookhaven and been taken aback by the beautiful landscape and architecture? You may have even found yourself wondering if you were still in the heart of a city known for its traffic and high rises. Now, your curiosity can be cured with a ticket to the Historic Brookhaven Candlelight Tour of Homes on Thursday, October 5. This prestigious biennial event benefits Atlanta Ronald McDonald House Charities (ARMHC) and features homes which date from the early 1920s to today.
The 2017 Tour is presented by Beacham & Company Realtors and The Skogstad-Sodemann Team. Five of Historic Brookhaven’s most remarkable and extraordinarily decorated homes will be featured on this year’s Tour. The neighborhood’s residents along with the community sponsors who support the charity enable the event to grow year after year.
“All proceeds from the Tour will help families of ill and injured children receiving medical treatment at local hospitals,” says Tour Committee Co-Chair Katherine Strickland. She also noted the long history of the Brookhaven community being tremendously generous and kind to the local charity, which is just miles away from the Brookhaven neighborhood near Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Scottish Rite. “With it being in our backyard, we feel a special connection to the families needing our help during difficult times.”
