Why have you supported the JOY Home Tour for so long?
We truly believe that it takes a village to thrive in life, and part of being in that village is a
responsibility to help our fellow ‘villagers'. That’s why giving back to the community has always
been at the core of everything we do, and we are so very lucky to have built so many great ties
within our community in doing so! In helping our community, our community helps us, and that’s
a partnership that we couldn’t be more proud of.
What's your favourite part of the JOY home Tour?
The sparkles, the glitter, the decor, and best of all, it is CHRISTMAS!!!! We love Christmas. Our
absolute favorite part of the entire tour is just after we finish decorating, we turn the overhead
lights off, and look at the space, with all the Christmas lights on, before the public tour starts.
There is both a sense of peace and satisfaction to be able to say, “we gave the very best we
had and are proud to put our name on a room and space.
What do you get back from taking part in the JOY Home Tour?
We get to meet some amazing people, work with some talented companies, and an opportunity
to be a good villager.
