Mark your calendars

for the sixth annual tour


Friday, June 5, 2020

The Darien House Tour:  Homes with Heart will take place on June 5, 2020.  This popular event, now in its sixth year, features ~six fabulous homes that represent a range of architectural and decorating styles, and are selected for their diversity, location and, of course beauty.  Attendees are also invited to have lunch at a local club for an extra charge.    


Over the past five years, the Darien House Tour:  Homes with Heart has raised over $300,000 for nearly 20 local nonprofit organizations which serve the disadvantaged, our youth and elderly. Funds are raised through ticket sales, sponsorship & advertising, and a raffle at the event.  

Each year, the tour committee selects a lead beneficiary.  This year, we are excited to announce two lead beneficiaries who will receive a larger portion of tour proceeds.

The Darien House Tour:  Homes with Heart is presented by The First Congregational Church of Darien Board of Christian Outreach which selects organizations to support through a thorough vetting process.  The church distributes over $100,000 each year to nonprofit organizations.  Funds include 10% of church pledge dollars and the proceeds from the house tour.  

Mission statement:  The board puts faith into action by addressing the needs of others.  Our first priority is helping those who lack the most immediate, basic necessities, whether locally, nationally or internationally.  We promote permanent and systemic improvements in people’s lives by contributing both financially and physically to hands-up programs.
