Commemorative Event Poster
The 3rd Highlands Eichler Home Tour was a huge success. Eleven families opened the doors of their homes to the general public, helping raise over $70,000 for the local Highlands Elementary school.
In addition to the homes and the great weather, guests enjoyed attractions at the event hub which included a mid-century movie lounge decked out by Janakos with authentic period furniture to relax in while viewing both the Lombardelli film People in Glass Houses and a newly created documentary on the history of the San Mateo Eichler Highlands. The hub also had a restored Airstream to tour, an auction of paintings by the late Chris Ranes, Eichler specialists and vendors to meet, and a catered lunch by Sataysfied.
The event booklet was a piece of art in and of itself. Forty pages of highlights, pictures, and details and contact information for our favorite Eichler artists and service providers. The event tour poster is also quite magnificent this year. We have a few booklets and posters set aside which you can still purchase.
This year’s event offered a shuttle that helped guests get to the remote locations, save time, and was a courtesy to our guests with limited mobility. Most guests walked most of the time, meeting new friends and fellow Eichler enthusiasts as they made their journey.
