Tour four festively-decorated Big Sky residences on Saturday Dec. 17 from 3-7 p.m. in a fundraiser event to benefit Big Sky Discovery Academy. The first annual Holiday Home Tour provides free transportation to homes in Spanish Peaks Mountain Club, and in the Sweetgrass Hills, Meadow Village and Beavercreek neighborhoods. 

Drinks and hors d’oeuvres will be served at each residence while homeowners provide a detailed description of their home, including architect, builder, decorator and designer information. Auction items and gifts for sale will also be available.

Attendees also have the option to drive separately and will be provided with a map and informational brochure. Childcare is offered for an additional fee.

The idea for the home tour—Discovery Academy’s primary fundraiser for school programming and scholarships—came from a student’s grandmother who started a similar event in her hometown and found it to be a huge success.

“Big Sky Discovery Academy wanted to start a ‘tradition’ for the school and our area,” said Karen Maybee, founder and president of the school board. “Our Parent Action Committee recognized the continued generosity of local businesses and people who donate to so many area fundraisers. Our focus is to create an experience. We want the Holiday Home Tour to be a unique event that celebrates our community coming together.” 

Join Big Sky Discovery Academy and Community Learning Center for a day of architectural and décor inspiration in a social atmosphere while supporting these local nonprofit organizations.
