LCCA Needs Your Support for the 32nd Annual Holiday House Tour

The Holiday House Tour, scheduled this year for Sunday, December 5, is LCCA’s signature annual event and our only fundraiser. Please show your support today by becoming a patron or benefactor. Your generous donation will help us continue our ongoing efforts to improve the quality of life in the Logan Circle neighborhood for residents, businesses, and visitors.

We’re often asked what we do with membership dues and donations. Here are a few examples: We support local non-profits (recent beneficiaries include the Constance Whitaker Maffin Memorial Fund and N Street Village); we make community development grants, such as our major treebox initiative that enhanced the beauty of our neighborhood immeasurably. We also have administrative fees to pay, such as accounting, Web services, and insurance. Membership meetings and special events bring convening costs. And while we’re largely electronic in our communications, we do have printing and duplicating expenses to meet.

We’re proud that LCCA is a 100 percent volunteer-run organization and are grateful for the thousands hours logged by our volunteers every year. We make every effort to keep costs to a minimum, and we are deeply grateful for your support.

Please print and complete the Patron and Benefactor Registration Form today. We need to hear from you by COB Monday, November 15, in order to recognize you in the House Tour Program.

Thank you!
