Holiday Charity Event to Assists Local Students and Families
Desert Club’s 2016 Christmas Idea House will be showcased in the beautiful Seville subdivision in Gilbert, Arizona. The 11,000 square foot, multi level, custom home is situated on 1.2 acres of beautifully landscaped property. The home near Higley and Riggs Roads will be transformed into a Christmas wonderland, open for the public to tour and purchase thousands of unique holiday gifts and décor artfully displayed. All proceeds from this event will provide need-based scholarships to deserving young students and benefit local charities.
MODERN DAY ELVES AND A 59 YEAR OLD TRADITION
The Christmas Idea House has become a holiday tradition and lures thousands of visitors each year. It is the primary fundraiser for Desert Club, a 70 year old, all-volunteer women’s service organization. The event is held at a different luxury home each year in locations throughout the East Valley. Desert Club members decorate the home from top to bottom with holiday décor, unique and handcrafted gifts and gourmet goodies, all for sale and ranging in price from $5 to several hundred dollars each. One hundred percent of the proceeds are given back to the community in the form of scholarships to in-state college students and grants to local charities. To date, Desert Club has awarded almost $2.7 million.
