Sam Hughes Neighborhood Home Tour 2019
The 2019 Sam Hughes and Neighborhood Tour committee would like to thank all of our participants for making the tour such a resounding, sold-out success. Those participants are the owners of the 11 homes on the tour as well as owners of the 10 other venues. But so many others are the support without which we couldn't function: 70 volunteers, advertisers, AZ DAILY STAR, and in-kind donors Rincon Market, Arte de la Vida, Fotoventures, Deadwood Framing, Bob Dobbs/Corbett Brewing Co. and, of course, our sponsor Truly Nolen.
With 1420 attendees and $39,412 in net proceeds (a 45% gain over the 2017 tour), we'll be hard put to best ourselves in the 2021 tour. Still yet, we're brimming with ideas and have 18 months to rest up. We think Mr. Hughes, for whom the neighborhood was named but never lived here, would be mighty proud.
