AKRON, OH - The Gay Community Endowment Fund 20th annual Sugar Plum Tour of Holiday Homes arrived on 5-12 December 2021.

Due to the ongoing pandemic, The Sugar Plum Tour's 20th-anniversary festival will feature live and virtual tours. The lie tour will take place on Sunday, Dec. 5, from 1 to 5 p.m., and the virtual tour will take place the weekend of Dec. 11-12. This event is presented by The Gay Community Endowment Fund of Akron Community Foundation to raise funds for Akron LGBTQ+ community.

A total of sponsorships ranging from $500 to $5,000 will be available for the Sugar Plum. Individuals or corporate who participated in sponsoring the event will receive both tickets for the live and virtual tour. On December 5, they will also hold a private Patron Party, right after the live tour ends at another private location from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Special brunch and preview tour will be held by this year's homeowners for sponsors who donated $2,500 or above.

"We’re thrilled to be celebrating 20 years as Akron’s favorite holiday tradition while creating lasting change for our local LGBTQ+ community," said Babette Medcalf, Sugar Plum Tour co-chair. "We invite businesses and individuals to show their support for equality and inclusion in our community by sponsoring this year’s milestone event."

The Sugar Plum Tour has raised more than $1.3 million since its first establishment, to support the Gay Community Endowment Fund to help fund programs that impact the LGBTQ+ community and other communities in Akron. This year, the collected money will help to create safer environments for LGBTQ+ youth and combated phobias and misconception of the LGBTQ+ community. These initiatives also help in establishing mental health and suicide prevention program for the LGBTQ+ community in Akron.
