Great Kitchens Sought

The Children’s Support League of the East Bay is planning its 25th annual Heart of the Home Tour!  This special event takes place on April 26th & 27th, 2013 and I’m proud to be serving as Co-Chair with Pat Forsyth.

The funds that we raise from the Tour are contributed to non-profit agencies serving at risk children in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties.

We are currently searching for five outstanding recently remodeled Piedmont and Oakland (Upper Rockridge or Claremont Hills) to feature on the Tour.  If you have a home that you’ve worked on that you would like to recommend for consideration for the 25th annual Heart of the Home Tour, please send me a brief description, address, and photos if possible to lee@eastbaymoms.com.

Thanks for your help in selecting homes for what we anticipate to be a very special event!
