The GFWC Brandon Service League began the Holiday Home Tour in 1993 with one home and since that time the tour has grown to three unique homes, all beautifully trimmed in holiday fare to help kick off the season. The tour is the major fundraiser for the club and has become one of the premier events of the holiday season in Brandon.

Proceeds from the tour benefit numerous local Brandon charities including: A Kid’s Place, the Emergency Care Help Organization (ECHO), New Horizon Group Homes and the Bill Carey Unit of the Boys and Girls Club, to name a few. The event is widely publicized and supported by area businesses, churches and community organizations.
