The Village at Hendrix plans Bethlehem House Tour of Homes

Residents from The Village at Hendrix are opening their doors again to help the Conway homeless shelter.

The Village at Hendrix is planning its second Bethlehem House Holiday Tour of Homes Saturday, Dec. 7, and Sunday, Dec. 8.

This year’s event, the 2013 Bethlehem House Holiday Tour of Homes, is planned 2 to 6 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 7, and 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 8. It offers an opportunity to walk through many of the classically inspired homes while enjoying holiday treats and musical performances.

Proceeds will help Bethlehem House feed the hungry and house the homeless.

“The Village is very happy to partner with Bethlehem House on this year’s event,” said Ward David, CEO of The Village at Hendrix. “Our goal is to help this wonderful community organization care for those who need it most, the homeless.”

The Village includes residential homes and commercial spaces and features entertainment and outdoor amenities, including the 18-acre Hendrix Creek Preserve.

Bethlehem House recently moved into a beautiful new building at 1115 Parkway. The shelter has capacity for 35 residents in transitional housing, eight individuals in emergency situations and office space for 10 staff members. The new building provides a modern kitchen for efficient food preparation, dining space for residents and the hungry in the community, as well as a multipurpose room that will be used for education and training. The residents’ children enjoy their own playroom and an outside playground.

501 LIFE is a major sponsor of the tour of homes.

Tickets for Saturday and Sunday are $10 in advance and $15 at the door. Advance tickets are available at The Village Welcome Center, The Kitchen Store & More, Jenifer’s Antiques, Village Books and online at
