31st Annual Bellaire

Home Tour

March 23 & 24, 2013

1 - 5 pm

We are very excited about the upcoming Home Tour, our 31st! (See event poster)

The Center is very lucky to have Betty Bellomy of John Daugherty Realty on board as our 2013 Home Tour Chair.  The homes chosen for the Home Tour are exquisite and provide an excellent opportunity for their owners to give back to our community by directly supporting the Nature Discovery Center.

Working with Betty Bellomy is Sarah Flournoy, Executive Director of the Nature Discovery Center.  Betty and Sarah will be working to promote awareness of the Center and how this hands-on learning facility can benefit people of all ages by teaching them how to understand the simplicity of all living things and how they affect our environment.

You may now sponsor the Bellaire Home Tour or make a Home Tour donation through our online form.

To learn more about sponsorship, volunteering, or to inquire about other opportunities, contact Betty Bellomy at 713.561.6848 - BettyB@JohnDaugherty.com or Sarah Flournoy at 713.667.6550.

See you all at the 31st Annual Bellaire Home Tour!
