'Designer Kitchen Tour' Saturday in South Surrey, White Rock

WHITE ROCK and SOUTH SURREY — If you’ve ever wanted to stick your head into a brand new kitchen, meet the designers and talk about current trends and products, this is your kind of event.

Peace Arch Hospital Auxiliary is hosting its popular Designer Kitchen Tour on Saturday, June 7, between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Owners of seven homes – both new and newly renovated – located in White Rock and South Surrey have agreed to open their doors to the public for the tour, which benefits Peace Arch Hospital.

Tour participants can pick up some fresh decorating ideas and also satisfy their curiosity."We all want to poke into nice homes," said LaVerne Hogg, a member of the society.

All of the homes on the tour have been designed and installed by Pacific Rim Cabinets, a Surrey company that has designed kitchens in Georgie award-winning homes.

The tours are self-guided, and people go at their own pace.Each ticket is $25, which gives the buyer a map of the homes and an entry to win a door prize.

Said Hogg: "We’ve had groups of women who make a day of it (in the past), touring the kitchens and going for lunch, as well as couples looking for ideas for their kitchens, and people walking by on the street come in and buy a ticket. We’ve even had architects and other professionals tour our kitchens."

Tickets for the tour can be purchased at the hospital gift shop, or by calling Alicia (604-536-5634) or LaVerne (604-535-2408).
