At Home: Designer opens home for CASA Homes for the Holidays Tour
All proceeds from the bakery and tour ticket sales will benefit CASA of Shawnee County, whose mission is to recruit, train and supervise volunteers who advocate for local children who are in the court system because of abuse or neglect.“The Homes for the Holidays Tour is CASA’s signature fundraising event,” said Shelley Ramos, executive director of CASA of Shawnee County. “Without the tour’s success, we wouldn’t have the resources to recruit and train our volunteers. This tour is a way for people to enjoy the beauty of the season while at the same time supporting some very special children in our community.”“Christmas is a holiday kids should really enjoy and not worry about problems at home,” said Brian Haug, who is participating for the second time in the tour and whose home is the location of the Sweet Treats Bakery.Haug drew from his own childhood memories as inspiration for the more than 20 themed Christmas trees that will fill his home this year.“Growing up, we always had a real tree every year that we cut down and decorated the day after Thanksgiving. When I went to college, I had a real tree the first year, and then people started giving me trees. I started collecting in 2005, and now it takes an entire storeroom to store,” Haug said.Some of the trees that tour guests can expect to see include snowman hats, Santas, picture frames, penguins and a Paris-themed tree, which was a result of an after-holiday sale that Haug stumbled upon at Pier One a few years ago.“The themes just happen,” Haug said.Many of Haug’s trees and decor have personal meaning to him, including two trees that are decorated with ornaments that Haug’s grandmother crocheted. One of his favorite trees is a travel-themed tree that features ornaments Haug has collected during his travels.“Every ornament has a story with friends, family or traveling for work,” said Haug.Designer Ariel Unselt with Chinell’s will help Haug decorate his home this holiday season. It will feature rustic plaid in his bedroom and exterior decor in shades of candy cane red and white. Haug’s basement will have a WIBW station theme, a nod to the company where he has worked for the past decade and which is a sponsor of this year’s tour.In addition to opening his house for the Homes for the Holidays event, Haug and several of his friends and community leaders have adopted 15 children from the CASA organization for the season. They will select gifts, which will be in Haug’s home during the tour and later be taken to CASA to be distributed to the children in time for Christmas.“It’s great to be able to provide a helping hand and raise money for kids who need assistance,” Haug said. “I want people to come out and have a great time, support CASA and love Christmas as much as I do.”Anyone interested in donating to CASA may contact Shelley Ramos at (785) 215-8280 or email@example.com for information.
