     Popular Holiday Charity Event to aid Valley Students and Families

This year’s Christmas Idea House, a Luxury Home Tour and Holiday Shopping Event, returns to the community of Las Sendas in Mesa from Dec 3-5th, 2015. Las Sendas, known for its city lights, and mountain views, provides an inspiring setting for this event, where visitors will discover thousands of unique holiday gifts and décor items on display and offered for sale with ALL PROCEEDS given back to the community.

A 58 Year Tradition

The Christmas Idea House, which attracts thousands of visitors each year, is the primary fundraiser for Desert Club, an all-volunteer women’s organization. The event is held at a different luxury home each year within the East Valley. The homeowners generously “move out” of their home for the weekend, and Desert Club members converge to decorate it creating a holiday wonderland with hundreds of thousands of items including stunning holiday décor and gourmet goodies that range from $2 to several hundred each. All of the items are for sale, and all of the proceeds are awarded through need-based scholarships and grants to local students and charities. To date, Desert Club has raised and given more than $2.5 million.

The Details

The Christmas Idea House kicks off on Thursday Dec 3rd at 6:00pm with the “Cocktail Soiree” which includes a first-look home tour, music, silent auction, food and drink served at the Trailhead Club (advance $60 ticket required). Friday Dec 4th reservations will be available for the “Mimosa Brunch”(9am seating $40 or 12pm seating $35) where guests enjoy gourmet-catered food followed by the Home Tour and shopping.

The home is open for public tours and shopping on Friday Dec 4th from 4-8pm and Saturday Dec 5th, from 9am-4:00pm. Tickets are $12 each. Guests may receive a $2 discount by bringing a can of food to donate.
