MILFORD - Organizers report that the seventh annual “Behind Closed Doors” House Tour was a tremendous success, with profits exceeding $12,600.00. This event is the primary fundraiser for the non-profit Survivors Resources and the proceeds will benefit the agency’s safe house. Managers at Survivors’ Resources said the agency is extremely grateful to the community businesses, volunteers and private donors who have partnered in the commitment to provide hope and financial resources to victims of domestic violence and/or sexual assault. Without assistance from sponsors, Century 21 Roy B. Hull Realtors, Richard Snyder, Coldstream Graphics, Audrey Lanham, Davis R. Chant of Chant Realtors, Newton Motorsports, Sussex Honda, Wal-mart, Weinstein, Schneider, Kannenbacker and Lokuta, and the Litzenberger Family Foundation, this event would not have been possible. What is even more remarkable is that the aforementioned individuals and businesses have continuously supported the House Tour since its inception in 1999, organizers reported. Raffle tickets, featuring an exclusive home design consult by ASID designer, Fran Wood, of Patina Interiors, attracted attention. Doris Mooney was the winner of the lavish dine and design consultation. Second place winner, Celeste O’Neil, earned a $100 gift certificate and Libby Paul earned a $50 Patina Interiors gift certificate as the 2nd runner up in the raffle. Ms. Wood has been a dedicated supporter of Survivors’ Resources in the past by donating and decorating doll houses, selling House Tour tickets and providing thought-provoking displays in her windows honoring those who are affected by domestic violence. Organizers also extended thanks to the gracious homeowners who opened their doors to nearly 200 tour attendees, to the many volunteers who gave their time serving as guides in the homes, and to Bodies in Balance, Nellie’s Naturals and Seventh Street Coffee for ticket sales.
