Eight waterfront houses will be open to the public for the Smith Mountain Lake Charity Home Tour, which will be held Oct. 11-13.
The homes on the tour in Bedford County are the Herbert home in Huddleston’s Mountain View Shores, the Foster home on Valley Mill Road and the Hall home in the Cove section of Mariners Landing.
On the Franklin County side are the Clark home in The Boardwalk; the McKown home in Park Place; the home of Roger and Sybil Smith on Riverbay Drive; and above Hales Ford bridge, the Nocera home and the Layton home.
When selecting the homes, the Home Selection Committee considers not only aesthetic appeal, but also the location to make sure various areas of the lake are represented. All the homes may be reached by land or water.
“We are delighted to announce the full complement of homes this early in the year,” said Kay Allen, chairman of the Home Selection Committee. “This reflects the community’s enthusiasm for the charity home tour. The homeowners are all proud to be part of a community-wide effort to support charities that serve needy families in the SML area.”
This year’s participating charities, chosen by a committee from among the qualifying 501C-3 organizations that applied and serve the SML area, are the Agape Center, Bedford Pregnancy Center, Casa of Central VA, Feeding America-SWVA, Free Clinic of Central VA, Free Clinic of Franklin County, Lake Christian Ministries and SML Good Neighbors.
This will be the 23rd consecutive year that a charity home tour has been conducted at SML. The effort involves more than 1,100 volunteers every year and has donated more than $3.5 million to participating charities.
