UR Chapel Guild Christmas House Tour and Lunch

Thursday, December 12, 2019, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Get in the Spider Holiday Spirit with this beloved long-time tradition! Five unique and beautiful homes will be open for tours through the generosity of their owners who are UR neighbors, friends, and alumni. 

Tickets are $45 and will be on sale beginning October 1st. Each ticket includes access to visit all five homes and lunch in the festively decorated Jepson Alumni Center on the University of Richmond campus. 

The five homes may be visited in any order. Lunch will be served in two 45-minute sessions during the tour. Upon purchase of a House Tour ticket, guests will be provided a lunch ticket with their designated lunch time - either 11:30 a.m.-12:15 p.m. or 12:15-1 p.m.  Please plan your tour so that you may arrive at the Jepson Alumni Center for lunch during your designated time. Guests may take boxed lunches to go, or enjoy lunch with friends in the Robins Pavilion or Quigg Room of the Jepson Alumni Center.

Tickets may be purchased from a Chapel Guild member, in the Office of the Chaplaincy or in the Office of Alumni Relations. Checks should be made payable to the “University of Richmond” with "Chapel Guild" in the memo line. All proceeds help to support the programs of the Office of the Chaplaincy. 

Treat yourself and your friends and family to the warmth and joy of the Christmas season at our beloved campus. Celebrate with us!  

For additional information, please contact the Office of the Chaplaincy at 804-289-8500.
