McCain Home Tour


Sunday, December 8, 2019 - 11:00


Manhattan, KS

Description: MANHATTAN — Mark your calendar now for some holiday cheer as the Friends of McCain Auditorium have announced the McCain Holiday Home Tour for 2019. The popular biennial fundraiser for McCain Auditorium will be 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 8. This year's event will feature four area residences decorated for the holiday season. Selection and coordination of homes begins more than a year in advance to allow homeowners adequate time to plan and prepare for the event. Money raised will support McCain Auditorium's education and outreach activities. "McCain Auditorium's education programs, including free children's matinee performances, are supported by sponsorships, individual giving, grants and fundraising events such as the McCain Holiday Home Tour," said Todd Holmberg, executive director of McCain Auditorium. "The community also enjoys touring the homes and seeing a snapshot of the homeowners' holiday traditions while knowing they are benefiting arts-related educational programming at McCain Auditorium." Sponsorships are available for the home tour by contacting Holmberg at or 785-532-6425. The tour will feature the Kansas State University’s President’s Residence full of history including updates to the Eisenhower bedroom. Amanda and Eric Purdom’s home on Poyntz Ave is a beautiful example of a historic home expanded over the years featuring casual classic décor. Pat and Paula Caffey’s home on College Heights is well known for its traditional exterior Christmas decorations and now people will get to see the inside, including a 1950s style diner. Sunset Cottage is a stunning vacation rental near the campus restored and managed by Capstone3D. . The variety of homes and decorations are sure to inspire everyone who goes on the tour. Tickets will be $20 in advance or $25 at the door and will be available at several area business outlets starting in November. The McCain Holiday Home Tour Committee is chaired by Julie Keenan. For more information on the tour, please contact her at or 210-875-7456. Submitted by: Todd Holmberg McCain Auditorium
