The Literacy Council of Williamson County has a spectacular line-up of festively decorated private residences for the public to visit during the non-profit’s annual Homes for the Holidays tour, set for Friday, Dec. 6 through Sunday, Dec. 8.
Tickets are still available and the proceeds benefit the efforts of the Literacy Council to ensure that the lives of adults are enriched through education. Their vision is for all people of Williamson County to have the ability to use literacy as the gateway to a better life.
This charitable event will feature four distinct homes, each one transformed by a talented array of decorators.  
“Last year’s inaugural event surpassed all of our initial expectations with over 1,500 people touring the homes,” said Barbara Nowak, co-chair of the Homes for the Holidays tour. 
“We are eager to see what the designers have in store for us this year, and are honored to have been chosen by Andrews Cadillac for the local launch of their new CTS series.”  
In addition to the homes showcasing a variety of Brentwood neighborhoods and featuring top-tier, local designers, Andrews Cadillac of Brentwood has signed on to showcase their full line of next-generation CTS luxury vehicles. 
Not to be outdone, Paul Burnash, owner of Paul’s Chocolate Gallery, will be creating and donating a holiday-themed chocolate sculpture on display at the home of Stacye and Michael Clark. The sculpture will incorporate a hand-crafted sleigh, evergreen tree, ornaments, gifts, poinsettias and toys, utilizing over 80 pounds of chocolate. 
This year’s featured homes and their owners are as follows:  Meg and George Hill, of Brentwood Country Club have worked closely with designer Jennifer Markanich, of Timeless Interiors. 
 Judy and Dick Williams, of Highlands of Belle Rive, will showcase their home and the creative work of Richard Edwards, RED/Richard Edwards Design (and formerly with Gabriel’s Garden), as well as Deana Slemp, Deana Designs. 
 Kim and Ryan Foster, of Princeton Hills have been paired with the talented Tim Causey, of ReCreations. 
 Stacye and Michael Clark, of Windstone, will welcome patrons to see their home dressed for the holidays by designer Gail Adkins, of Change Magic Interior Redesign and Rhonda Perry, Rdp Design. As a bonus feature, the Clark estate will feature Paul Burnash’s custom holiday chocolate sculpture. 
 Tickets, priced at $20 in advance, can be purchased online at or at the door for $25.  
 A “Patrons Party” will be held on Thursday, Dec. 5 for $100 per ticket. 
In addition to a wine and hors d’oeuvres tasting, this exclusive event at the Andrews Cadillac showroom enables ticket holders to get an early viewing of the new CTS, touted by the New York Times as “a grand car,” while Popular Mechanics describes the series as “one of the most rewarding lineups in luxury sports sedans.”
