Exclusive Patron Party
Sponsors and Patron level ticket buyers will enjoy a private "after party" following the tour at a 6th exclusive, private home. Our gracious patron party hosts typically permit us to envite up to 250 guests into their home from 5:30-8:30 PM. to join in the fun. Due to having a ceiling on the number of guests, to ensure your reservation, please consider a sponsorship of this year's tour at the level which is most comfortable for you.
Moe's catering is the Sugar Plum Tour's official caterer of choice and we are pleased that she will be catering this year's Patron Party once again. Moe has catered this exclusive post tour event for many years and knows what our discerning Sponsors and Patrons have come to expect. She will provide an array of delicious foods, desserts and beverages, including a signature holiday cocktail that shouldn't be missed! It is our pleasure to provide our guests with valet parking for your convenience. Guests will have time to preview and bid on a wide variety of silent auction items while catching up with old friends and sampling Moe's delectable creations.
We will once again offer 2 table top size Christmas trees heavily adorned with gift cards from area restaurants, department stores, grocery stores, home improvement stores and specialty shops. Raffle tickets are 5 for $20 and can be purchased on line or during the day of the tour. General tour goers do not need to be present at the patron party in order to win the raffle drawing. If a winner is not present, they will be informed of their winnings and their gift cards will be delivered during the next business day. Good Luck everyone!
Gay Community Endowment Fund
The Sugar Plum Tour has become Akron's premiere holiday home tour and is the signature fundraiser of the Gay Community Endowment Fund (GCEF). The fund's mission is to support programs that positively impact the LGBT community, as well as Greater Akron as a whole.
The fund is currently very near the $1 million mark. We are proud of the face that since 2005, GCEF has reinvested nearly $360,000 into the community by awarding grants to numerous area nonprofit organizations that support our mission.
