Start your holiday homes tour in the John & Joni Axel home. This two-story is as interesting as the owners themselves. Joni is an attorney and John the owner of ESI Environmental Services. Check out the beautiful dining table decorated with a WOW centerpiece that you could take home if you are the lucky bidder. There are so many beautiful things to look at. You may want to make a return trip to Pearl Plaza to shop for some of the same items at Just Because.

Next stop is Elly Lloyd's home. This generous one-bedroom loft will be decked out in lovely Holdiay decor thanks to our local Feather Your Nest home furnishings store. Elly's personality shines through in her home. Family is important and lovely family heirlooms complement the brick walls and high ceilings.

“Down, please.” Take the elevator down one story for a complimentary wine tasting at Wine-Nutz lounge and wine experience. Pair each of eight specially selected wines with cheeses from Hy-Vee. Did we just tickle your appetite? No problem, stop in the Community Foundation office to sample the goodies at the Button Factory Woodfire Grille food station.

Some thoughtful donors have given several nice wines for auction items. See these and a handmade wine cork wreath in Wine-Nutz.


Everything is so lovely! You'll wish your holiday table could look as good as those on display right outside Wine-Nutz. Creative designer Lori Jensen is working her magic with decorations, centerpiece and even the plates which you can bid on at auction. Or take your chance on the raffle to win the festive centerpiece and brunch for eight compliments of Button Factory Woodfire Grille. And, there’s more!

Main floor features our grand auction. Take care of your holiday shopping or bid on things for yourself. Keep an eye on your bid while sampling yummy morsels and desserts from Elly's Tea & Coffee House. Dab that chocolate off your chin so you can pose for a photo with your sweetie next to the holiday carriage. Our guests will receive a souvenir digital photo to keep the holidays alive all year.

Just how will I get me sweetie there? Aren't the home tours traditionally for women? A new feature this year is the Man Cave with big screen TV tuned to the football game and a Golden Tee arcade game to be auctioned that night. You won't miss out on the fun, though. Port City Underground is baking their famous pizzas to taste and pouring samples of beers for all who enter the Man Cave.

There's so much to do at "A Gift to Your Community - A Holiday Event" and it's included in the ticket price. Four floors of fabulous! Don't worry, you won't miss a thing. The Hall Tree Boutique is featuring a strolling fashion show so no matter where you are, you'll find that just right outfit to keep YOU fabulous.
