The Downtown Wilmington Lifestyle Tour is scheduled for Saturday, April 26. So far, 8 dwellers have committed to open their homes and provide a glimpse about living in Downtown to participants. As we have only 2 more slots remaining, WDI is extending an open invitation for anyone interested in helping the tour by allowing people into their home. To support with walk-ability, we are especially hoping to find homes in the commercial core of Downtown.
Whether you rent or own, are in a condo or single family unit, have antique or modern furnishings, or enjoy an ornate or minimalist style, this tour is designed to showcase the diverse housing options in Downtown. This gives attendees a better understanding of the lifestyle and options available for people who choose to live Downtown.
Participating homeowners will receive two free tickets for the event, so they can see other homes too. WDI will place docents to watch over each home for the entire time of tour from 11am to 4pm. We will also host an exclusive soirée to introduce homeowners and volunteers prior to the event.
Help us promote the "real" Downtown by opening your home for this tour. Call WDI at 763.3749 or click here for more information. Unable to open up for a tour but want to help as a volunteer? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
