Lafayette Juniors Host Their 17th Annual Kitchen Tour for Charity on May 14th

Sat, May 14, 2016

Tickets are on sale now for the Lafayette Juniors 17th Annual Kitchen Tour. This self-guided tour will be held on Saturday, May 14th from 10am to 3pm and welcomes guests into six special Lafayette homes with beautifully designed classic, traditional, and transitional kitchens including a stunning kitchen frequently featured as a backdrop for Restoration Hardware and Pottery Barn photo shoots. Attendees will receive a Kitchen Tour program detailing all of the distinctive design elements of the kitchens as well as information on the architects, designers and contractors who created these spaces.

This year on the tour, attendees will enjoy delicious appetizers prepared by local chef Aimee Ames and fresh-baked cookies by local favorite, baked. Tour attendees will also get the chance to see the homes come to life with art from Lafayette’s Jennifer Perlmutter Gallery and fun entertaining tablescapes set by Effortless Hostess.

Proceeds from this year’s event benefit the work of five local non-profit organizations: Youth Homes, Diablo Ballet’s PEEK Outreach Program, the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano, and Lamorinda Spirit Van. These organizations were selected by the Lafayette Juniors for the support they provide to children, families and seniors in the East Bay.

Tickets are $40 ($35 tax deductible), with a box lunch available for $15. Tickets can be purchased online at and are also available at Premier Kitchens in Lafayette.

“As we prepare for our Kitchen Tour, I’m reminded of what’s possible when we come together to raise funds for charity. The tour is a substantial fundraiser for our beneficiaries and gives them the ability to prevent poverty and homelessness among youth who age out of the foster care system as well as provide dance therapy to girls in juvenile detention, school meals to children of low-income families, and subsidized transportation to seniors so they can continue living at home,” said Christy Mack, President of the Lafayette Juniors. “We would like to thank everyone who is helping to make this year’s Kitchen Tour possible from our sponsors and donors to our generous homeowners who are opening their homes to us all to make a difference in the lives of others.”
