Steel Magnolias Present Style Long Beach 2009 – Home Tour
2009-05-14 · By Editor
Preparations are moving forward and the public is cordially invited to attend the upcoming Steel Magnolia Home Tour “Style Long Beach 2009,” to be held on May 17th.
This will be an especially exciting year, as guests will have the opportunity to tour a magnificent 68 foot motor yacht featuring four staterooms and countertops of rare burl wood and granite. Four other beautiful homes are equally as interesting, two of which are located on the Naples Canal with beautiful glass and art work. The two in the Alamitos Heights area are totally unique in character and design, both refurbished to retain the original character of the 1909-1929 architecture.
The homes may be toured in any order from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Guests are also invited anytime between 11:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. for light refreshments, courtesy of Ristorante DaVinci, and to enjoy a home accessories boutique in a beautiful garden setting in Park Estates. Comfortable flat walking shoes are necessary.
“Style Long Beach 2009” is an annual home tour, which has grown in popularity over the 5 years it has been presented. There never are “repeats,” and each home on the tour is distinctive. President Jackey Gray commented “how lucky we are to have such wonderful homeowners, who so generously open their doors to share with us their unique and beautiful surroundings.”
Steel Magnolias is the support group for the Geraldine Stramski Children’s Developmental Center at Miller Children’s Hospital, and are celebrating their tenth anniversary year.
Tickets are available for $30 by calling (562) 533-1992, or $35 after 10:00 AM on the day of the Tour at Coldwell Banker Coastal Alliance Realty, 1650 Ximeno Avenue, Suite 120, Long Beach Information is always available on the website (the steelmaganolias.org).
