Tour the homes on Key Biscayne Saturday

 

Key Biscayne's Chamber of Commerce will host its fourth annual “Homes of Key Biscayne: Lifestyles in Paradise,” fundraiser tour Saturday.

The tour will showcase the island's sights and unique homes via shuttles departing from the Key Biscayne Presbyterian Church, 160 Harbor Dr.

Guests can expect to see six homes, with styles highlighting different architects; they will also learn about the history of the island.

Food samples from some of the island's restaurants will be included in the tour, and a raffle, with prizes from local merchants and retailers, will also be offered.

Tickets cost $35 online at www.keybiscaynechamber.org, or $45 on the day of the event. Shuttles will be leaving from and returning to the church between 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

For more information, call 305-361-5207 or email kathye@keybiscaynechamber.org, at the church.
