St. Charles residents invited to tour local homes for charity Friday

Four St. Charles homes will be open to tour on Friday, Sept. 15, 2023, to raise money to support cancer patients and their families.

Kane County residents are invited to attend a Housewalk event in St. Charles to raise funds for cancer patients and their families on Friday, Sept. 15.

The house walk is organized by Phil’s Friends, a nonprofit organization out of Wheaton, that aims to provide Christ-centered support and hope to those affected by cancer.

Four St. Charles homes will be open to tour from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and from 4 to 8 p.m. Participants can tour anytime within these time windows and tickets are must be bought to participate.

Tickets cost $100 per person, with discounted rates for multiple ticket purchases. VIP tickets are $300 per person, and sponsorship opportunities ranging from $300-$20,000 also are available.

Every ticket sold allows Phil’s Friends to support a cancer patient for a year with a care package, monthly cards of hope and prayer. VIP tickets support three patients for a year, and sponsorships help Phil’s Friends provide additional outreach and support to cancer patients and put on more charity events.
