Spend an afternoon in Truckee exploring eight remarkable one-of-a-kind custom homes in Northstar and help raise money to benefit local schools during the first Excellence in Education Luxury Home Tour taking place Saturday, September 19, 2009 from 10am to 4pm.

Excellence in Education has partnered with the Tahoe Sierra Board of Realtors for this unique event that showcases a group of distinct homes. Discover many of the latest trends and creative ideas in luxury home building as envisioned by several of the region’s premiere architects, builders, designers and landscapers.
“Our goal is to invite participants to enter a world brimming with inspirational architecture, lavish interior design and creative landscaping,” explained Lil Schaller, Excellence in Education Board Member and Home Tour Chair. “We are looking forward to this new fundraising event and hope to make it a popular annual tradition.”
Proceeds from the Home Tour will benefit quality public education within the Tahoe Truckee Unified School District. Money raised will go directly into the school district via the Excellence in Education Foundation’s grant and teacher training programs.
