Cookie Tour Chair, Julie Jones (r) of the Amelia Island Blue Heron Inn, presents a check from AIBBA to Heather Jones (no relation), Executive Director of Micah’s Place, and Laurie Teeters, Volunteer Coordinator for Micah’s Place, while Chris (co-chair) and Maria Page of the Amelia Island Williams House share in the celebration in front of the Purple Dove Resale Center today.

The 2016 Holiday Cookie Tour of Inns was a resounding success.  Thousands of cookies were baked – and eaten – many trees and tens of thousands of lights and ornaments were put up, dozens of volunteer docents came to help, and over 1000 of you came through to view our inns…. whew!  With your help, we were able to present a check today for $4600 to Micah’s Place, the Domestic Violence Center for Nassau County.  That is quite an impact.  The Executive Director of Micah’s Place, Heather Jones, indicated that the organization readying their plans to add four more rooms for families to the building.  None are happy for the need, but we’re all happy that an organization like Micah’s Place exists for those in crisis.  We thank you all for your ticket and Sweet Deal Package purchases that allowed us to make this donation.  We hope that you enjoyed this year’s Tour, and will mark your calendars for our next Tour on Saturday, December 9, 2017.  Also be sure to mark your calendars for July when our tickets go on sale online at deeply discounted rates.  Thank you all for coming!
