44th Tour of Distinctive Homes Breaks Records to Benefit Local Community

We are gratified to announce the record-breaking success of the 44th Tour of Distinctive Homes. This was the organization's second professionally filmed and narrated virtual video home tour, featuring seven unique properties for viewing by ticket holders from the comfort of their own homes. The Tour is an opportunity for anyone, from anywhere with internet access, to learn more about Akron and surrounding communities while showcasing the creative ideas, passions and individual styles of each homeowner.

The 2022 Tour of Distinctive Homes experienced rousing support from its sponsors, an all-time high in the number of tickets sold, and a 15% increase in revenues over last year. Please take a moment to review the program below that recognizes our many valued supporters, describes the tour homes, and highlights some of the non-profit organizations that received grant funding in 2022.
