 It was a spectacular night of beautifully decorated homes and a festive party atmosphere during the annual Henry Mayo New-hall Memorial Hospital Holiday Home Tour League Gala held Friday night.

Three homes included on the 2012 tour were the Westridge home of Michael and Sharon Higgins, designed by College of the Canyon design students; the Westridge home of Thomas and Paula Nichols, designed by Brenda Miller; and the Placerita Canyon home of Chris Davis, designed by Patrick Tremblay.

The event benefited the neonatal intensive care unit at Henry Mayo.

Jo Ann Vindigni, president of the Henry Mayo Home Tour League, said the 32nd annual event was among the most successful in recent memory.

“I want to thank all the volunteers for their long hours and the hard work it took to put on this event,” Vindigni said.

Shelley Hann, chairwoman of the Home Tour League Preview Gala said the Friday night event attracted more than 150 guests, the most in recent years.

“It’s exciting that we have sold out the gala tonight,” said Hann.

Guests paid $100 per person to visit the three homes in advance of Saturday’s public showing and to the gala party at the Tournament Players Club in Valencia.

“We saw all the houses tonight,” said Dianne Benjamin, who attended with husband Bob. “The homes were beautiful and festive. We enjoyed every moment.”

Attendees Darlene and Robert Gandara also raved about the event.

“I thought the homes were gorgeous,” said Darlene Gandara. “The COC students outdid themselves. Those white peacocks and the peacock lamps were genius.”
