Tour of homes a success

April 14, 2007

Albany - - An Albany tradition continues today with a walk into some very nice homes.

The Albany Junior League held its Spring Tour of Homes Saturday.

For $15 dollars people got a chance to tour single and family residences. Organizers say many people come to get ideas how to decorate their own homes.

Other come to do something they've never done before.  

"The really neat thing is that people in the community get to come into houses that they may not ordinarily get to see. You drive down the road and you see a house and think wow that's a gorgeous home. Now all of a sudden you have the opportunity to come inside and view it," says member Denise Louise Gunnels.

The group raised more than $9,000 from this year's fundraiser. They plan to use some of that money to help Graceway, a long-term substance abuse treatment center for women.
