It is with sincere gratitude that I write this letter to you on behalf of the Entre Nous Club of Manatee County.

This past weekend, we presented our 40th annual Holiday Tour of Homes, opening four beautiful homes for the public to tour along with a vendor market and our Life Member Sweet Shoppe. The continued support of the citizens of Manatee County allows us to take the profits received from this weekend and return 100 percent of them to the community by way of scholarships, community projects and an emergency welfare fund.

I would personally like to thank our sponsors and the many local businesses who advertised in our ticket booklet for their generous financial support and contributions. I must thank our homeowners for opening their homes and making this weekend possible. To Bradenton Herald reporter Richard Dymond, we thank you for not only featuring our tour but also creating a visual story to present to the community of what our Club and our Tour is all about.

Thank you to Officer Phillip Smolinsky of the Bradenton Police Department for your time, assistance, kindness and positive influence this weekend while controlling our traffic flow.

Most importantly, we extend our greatest appreciation to the community whose continued attendance and patronage make this event a success year after year. We wish you a very blessed and happy holiday season and we look forward to seeing you next year at the 2018 Tour of Homes.

Amy Royall, President

Entre Nous Club Inc.
