For one day only, Omega Nu—Lodi’s invitation-only sorority—is hosting its annual holiday home tour, a philanthropic event created to raise money to fuel the group’s charitable efforts year round.
Get prepared to ooh and aww at the decorations inside six appointed Lodi homes, a celebration of architecture, interior design, and the holidays. Each home is impeccably decorated, and perhaps a tad over-the-top, serving up a serious helping of holiday inspo for those who haven’t put their own seasonal decorations up just yet.
Start with a champagne brunch at 11 AM at Weibel Vineyards, catered by Addy’s Paella, and shop local wares while you are there. At the end of the brunch, ten themed gift baskets will be raffled off to guests.
Funds are raised both through ticket sales—the group sells between 500 and 600 each year—and also through the raffle.
All proceeds from the event benefit local charities, most chosen by Omega Nu, however, each homeowner who participates in the home tour gets to designate where $1,500 will go, selecting a favorite local charity to support.
“With great consideration, we grant all proceeds from our efforts to needs in our city of Lodi,” says Evonne Shinn, president of Omega Nu and a member since 2013.
The Omega Nu Home Tour is one of two main events hosted by Omega Nu to support the city of Lodi. With both events, the group of volunteer women was able to donate $60,000 to area charities last year.
