A little bit like a “show and tell”, the “Sip N See” fundraising event on September 28 will allow you to take a guided tour of a historic home and enjoy a special evening with friends. Meredith Caddell and her Lights of Life committee have arranged this peek into one of the most beautifully restored homes in Sulphur Springs as a fundraiser for hospital needs. Reservations are recommended by September 27 by calling the Hopkins County Healthcare Foundation office 903-438-4799.
The home of Dr. Scott and Deanna McDearmont at 729 Church Street in Sulphur Springs was built in 1897 and formerly owned by doctors, government officials and judges. The gracious structure features lovingly preserved woodwork throughout the home. The McDearmonts purchased the home in recent years and continue in the painstaking restoration process. They will open their doors at 6pm on September 28 with local historian John Sellers serving as tour guide. A second group tour may follow. Appetizers and adult beverages will be provided by local vendors. Admission is a $25 donation, payable at the door, with proceeds going to the Hopkins County Healthcare Foundation.
The successful Lights of Life Style Show earlier in September was the first in the series for the campaign. Still ahead this Fall is a Quarter Auction, the “Fly Your Flag” local collegiate contest, the Christmas Tree Lighting in the hospital gardens and the Lights of Life Gala on January 27, 2018 with a “Jewel of the Nile” theme. A few tickets to the Gala are still available by calling 903-438-4799. The fundraising goal for this year’s campaign is $400,000.
