Four Potomac homes opened to the public last weekend for the 59th Potomac Country House Tour. The homes included the Hye Land House, Villa dei Leoni, an English Country Manor House, and the Holiday Carriage House. Also, a silent auction and boutiques were set up at St. Francis with free admission to the church events.
Weekend events included a Friday night preview party for parishioners at St. Francis, a silent action and a shopping extravaganza with boutiques featuring gifts, accessories, home décor, jewelry and art.
The tour was sponsored by St. Francis Episcopal Church and all proceeds will be distributed to help fund more than 24 mostly local programs addressing homelessness, hunger, children and women’s issues, and elderly care, including SOME, Stepping Stones Shelter, Interfaith Works, The Children's Inn at NIH, Special Love for Children with Cancer Summer Camp, and Montgomery County Coalition for the Homeless.
