Several houses in Bend are opening their doors to the public to share their ornate holiday decor as a fundraiser Friday and Saturday.

 

The "I'll Be Home for Christmas Home Tour" features the home of Susan Jorgensen and neighboring homes.

"My home is completely decorated from top to bottom. Every room has at least one Christmas tree; sometimes there's as many as 5 in one room.  There's a lot of theme trees, such as "The Wizard of Oz,' cartoon characters, fishing, hunting tree, bird tree, Hershey's ornament tree, handmade ornaments, vintage glass, I have probably 18 trees with different styles."

 

Jorgenson says this is the sixth year for the tour, and they average about 150 people viewing the homes.

 

Tickets are $5; profits will benefit the Des Chutes Historical Museum, the Williams Syndrome Foundation, the Children’s Vision Foundation and Bend Heroes Foundation
