Since 1958, Desert Club has hosted the annual Christmas Idea House where, over the course of three days, events are held at one or more beautifully decorated luxury homes. Our members plan for this event throughout the year to offer a variety of unique holiday treasures for sale. Christmas Idea House even includes a catered Gala Night and Preview Brunch experiences. All of the proceeds from these events go to scholarships and community grants. Over the past seventy years, Desert Club’s efforts have raised more than two million dollars.
