In place of the traditional Floating Homes Tour, this year the FHA will stage a Virtual Gala and Tour from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday, June 9.
Ticket buyers will be able to enjoy the color and diversity of this community from the comfort of their own homes, with no parking problems or lines on docks. The 90-minute online gala will include:
- A guided tour of historic waterfront landmarks
- Visits with the owners of some of the more dazzling floating homes
- Music performed by local bands
- Celebrity auctioneer State Senator Mike McGuire conducting a spirited auction of deluxe stay-and-play packages, such as a sojourn to the rainforest of Nicaragua
- Silent auction of arts and crafts by folks from the docks and other donated treasures
As with past tours, this will be the major fundraiser for the FHA. Proceeds from the gala will be shared with local nonprofits. The gala is appropriate for viewing by all ages.
Tickets will be available in late April, starting at $35. Discounts will be offered to community residents.
