Celebrations Holiday Home Tour

  • Friday, December 7, 2012. 10:00AM - 7:00PM
  • $30 per person
  • A self-guided tour of five amazing homes in Kirkland.
  • For tickets, click here.

Four tickets pay for new school clothing for one junior high school child; three tickets pay for a basket of essential items for families fleeing domestic abuse; and one ticket pays for a full Assault Survivor Kit and one mini kit in hospitals statewide.

Since 1989 we have provided support to over 13,000 survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence; clothed over 27,000 children in the Bellevue, Lake Washington, and Northshore school districts; and returned over 3.3 million dollars to our community.

We couldn't run programs like these without the support of the community at our fundraising events.

Assistance League of the Eastside's signature fundraiser, Celebrations, is a self-guided tour of local homes beautifully decorated for the holidays. Following the huge popularity of last year's event, the tour will once more take place in Kirkland, WA.

All proceeds from the tour help to fund the philanthropic programs of the Assistance League of the Eastside that include Operation School Bell, Assault Survivor Kits, Starting Over Support and Assistance League Outreach. These programs annually provide new clothing to over 2,700 students selected by school personnel in the Lake Washington, Bellevue and Northshore school districts; help to restore dignity to survivors of sexual assault with clothing to replace items retained as evidence by the police; and bring comfort to families seeking shelter from domestic violence.
