Delray Beach Home Tour Returns to Highlight Residences in Scenic Lake Ida Neighborhood

The 19th Annual Delray Beach Home Tour will provide the opportunity to view the exquisite interiors of highly-admired estates and gardens in Delray Beach’s Lake Ida Neighborhood. From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m on Wednesday, March 9, several homeowners will open their doors to visitors during the event, benefiting Achievement Centers for Children & Families (ACCF).

“Each year we select a different Delray Beach neighborhood where homeowners can showcase different interior designs and architectural styles,” Kari Shipley says, the co-chair of this year’s organizing committee. “The Home Tour will feature a variety of homes that range from elegant Florida bungalows, lakeside estates and lush tropical gardens providing home decorating and gardening enthusiasts with an inside look into the world of distinctive Delray living.”

During the tour, guests can enjoy a leisurely day exploring unique residences, a catered luncheon and trolley service between homes. All Home Tour ticket sales and sponsorships benefit ACCF, which supports children and families throughout Delray Beach and the surrounding neighborhoods. 

ACCF provides Early Learning (Toddler and Preschool), Out-of-School (After School and Summer Camp) and Teen Mentoring programs to prepare participants for academic and social success by empowering them to discover their skills and talents. ACCF families are served through programs like Family Strengthening and Economic Stabilization, which benefit the community by helping families in crisis, enabling them to serve as the foundation of their child’s growth.

“Continued support from our community has allowed us to keep our doors open to serve our children & families, at a time when they have needed us most,” Jessica Hall says, Chief Development Officer for ACCF. “Our great hope is to get back on track with this year’s Home Tour, as the community’s needs have only increased. It is our mission and privilege to make an important difference in the lives of the children and families we serve, and we need your help in bringing success to this fantastic fundraising event in 2022.”

The Home Tour was first conceived by long-time ACCF board members and supporters Anne Bright and Barbara Murphy. Planning for the home tour, which draws over 600 visitors annually, involves more than 100 dedicated volunteers. ACCF had to cancel the tours in 2020 and 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

“We are grateful for the support of all our hardworking volunteers, the homeowners who are graciously allowing visitors into their homes, and, of course, our dedicated sponsors,” Noreen Payne says, co-chair of the event along with Shipley.

Tickets for the Delray Home Tour are $100 per person through Feb. 23 and are available online at www.achievementcentersfl.org/delray-home-tour/. Tickets will increase to $125 on Feb. 24. COVID-19 safety protocols will be in place during the event.
