2020 Virtual Tour of Homes
 Hosted by 
Jocelyn White
Sponsored by 

After numerous fits and starts we are excited to share with you details about this year's Tour of Homes!

Due to the uncertainty of COVID-19 and our wish to keep everyone safe and well, we will be moving this year's event to an online experience.

We understand Turtle Creek Association's Tour of Homes is something our supporters and donors look forward to each year.  We recognize a virtual tour will NEVER replace the first impressions, sensations, and overall experience of touring a  luxury home in person.  However, we believe we've created a unique experience that will delight the eye and stir the imagination without leaving the safety and comfort of your own home!  No mask required!  

         Jocelyn White   

We are thrilled to share with you that local personality, Jocelyn White, has agreed to be our host as we feature 5 luxurious homes located within the Turtle Creek Corridor. She is an award-winning television program creator, writer, producer and host. Jocelyn and the programs she has been involved with, have scored Katie Awards, Matrix Awards and a Heartland Emmy, to name a few. Her current work on "Designing Texas" allows her to work closely with DFW innovators in home design and decor, landscape and garden gurus and lifestyle leaders.  The show airs Sunday mornings at 9:30 am on the The CW33.  Throughout her numerous projects, Jocelyn's Mission has remained the same: Upscale Living with a Down-Home Heart!

Jocelyn will navigate our viewers behind the doors of each home.  As images of the home begin to appear, you will hear the southern charm of Jocelyn's voice as she talks with the owner, architect and/or designer about special aspects of the home. Our camera will travel into closets and behind closed doors usually unavailable during our in-person tour. You will hear personal stories from the owners about their art, antiques, heirlooms and other private collections. 

In recognition of these trying times, we have lowered ticket prices. Tickets will be offered at $40 per person for TCA members and $50 per person for non-members. In addition, when you purchase a ticket for the home tour you will potentially be helping local merchants.  We have partnered with several local merchants to provide store discounts and/or coupons. Depending on your love of discounts, your tour ticket could effectively be free.  At the same time, you will be helping us drive business to neighborhood merchants. 
Current merchant partnerships include:  
Complimentary Appetizer ($10 Value)
20% off Services - Cedar Springs Location only 
10% of first order
10% off purchase - one time only 
(Note: We are still working to secure more merchant discounts, visit our website for a complete list of Retail Reward Participants)
Tickets will be available to purchase August 24, 2020  
Eventbrite - Discover Great Events or Create Your Own & Sell Tickets
Technology can be challenging, so this year Turtle Creek Association (TCA) is partnering with Eventbrite to ensure our Tour of Home attendees have a great virtual experience.  Eventbrite has created a seamless process for purchasing ticket(s) and for gaining access to our virtual event.  A support team will also be available to help guide you through the online experience. Please note, the TCA landing page is currently under construction on the eventbrite site.  Our anticipated go-live date is 8-24-2020.

The Premiere Event can be either a live in-person or virtual event.

In addition, two time slots to tour the home will be available with a limit of only 25 couples per time slot to ensure social distancing can be maintained.  If you prefer to participate virtually, you will receive a link that will provide access to a virtual tour of the home
