Celebrating 22 Years of Tour of Kitchens
By: Cameron Ellis, Chair, Tour of Kitchens, The Junior League of Atlanta, Inc.
For one weekend at the end of March, Atlantans get the chance for a rare peek into some of the area’s finest private kitchens, designed by some of Atlanta’s most celebrated designers. This year, The Junior League of Atlanta, Inc. (JLA) Tour of Kitchens, a two-day, self-guided tour, will take place March 23-24, and will include culinary demonstrations and events stationed throughout the 14 participating Metro Atlanta homes.
“We’re excited Tour of Kitchens is back for its 22nd year,” said Carla C. Smith, President of The Junior League of Atlanta, Inc. “It wouldn’t be spring in Atlanta without Tour of Kitchens, and JLA appreciates the support this event receives, not only from the designers and sponsors, but from the nearly 1,000 community members who participate and support the League every year.”
Each ticket sold for the Tour of Kitchens directly supports the JLA’s Junior League of Atlanta, Inc.’s mission of promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and transforming our community. The event comes together with the dedication of the Junior League’s volunteers and the support of the participating designers and sponsors, including Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles and Publix.
What brings participants back to this event each year? Brad Hanner, associate publisher of Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles knows the answer “Being able to see some of Atlanta’s finest kitchens, meet the designers and ask questions, while supporting a fantastic charity…It’s one of the best events each year!” To kick off the Tour of Kitchens weekend, a Toast of the Tour party will be hosted at Southern Exchange Ballrooms Friday, March 22, incorporating culinary demonstrations, hors-d’oeuvres, signature cocktails & and a spectacular silent auction enjoyed by nearly 600 patrons and designers.
