It’s the most delicious holiday home tour every year, and we look forward to the eye candy (and regular candy) on display in Highland Park Village every year in the form of the eighth annual Gingerbread Stroll. This unique edible home tour features elaborate gingerbread houses created by Dallas pastry chefs that you can view and bid on starting today, Nov. 16, through Nov. 30.
All proceeds of the stroll will help support Community Partners of Dallas’ new facility which opens in 2019. Specifically, the Gingerbread Stroll will fund one of their night response visitation rooms, which provides a warm and loving place for children taken into protective care by Child Protective Services as they await their transition to their safe placement. The visitation rooms will look like small houses, so it is fitting that one be named after The Gingerbread Stroll.
“It is so incredible, thanks to the pastry chefs and community sponsors, that The Gingerbread Stroll has increased in annual giving from $3,000 the first year in 2011, to over $31,000 last year,” says Allie Beth Allman agent and Gingerbread Stroll founder Christine McKenny. “I am hopeful we raise over $35,000 this year for the children served by Community Partners of Dallas.”
