The Walla Walla Affiliate of the American Association of University Women invites everyone to their 17th annual AAUW Kitchen Tour.

Tickets for the fundraiser are $20 and will be available at Earthlight Books, Bright’s Candies & Gifts, or at the kickoff site, the Whitehouse-Crawford Restaurant, 55 W. Cherry St., the day of the tour. AAUW Walla Walla members will also have tickets available for purchase. People are asked to email if they have any problem finding a ticket.

Participants will tour eight remarkable remodeled or new kitchens including some older homes that have been remodeled to reflect the historic character of the house while creating efficient kitchens, as well as new homes with completely modern materials and design. 

A must-see kitchen this year is a new bed-and-breakfast that’s been creating buzz throughout the Valley. Tour-goers will get a peek behind the scenes of this beautiful property.

This year’s tour again features raffle opportunities of goods and services donated by community members and businesses. Raffle tickets are $5 each and will be sold at selected kitchens on the tour.

The kickoff location is at the historic Whitehouse-Crawford Restaurant between 12 -2 p.m. Present your ticket to receive your Tour Guide and map for this self-guided tour. 

Kitchens will be open to visit until 5 p.m.

The annual tour is one of two fundraisers for the Walla Walla affiliate with proceeds from the tour going toward scholarships to local women continuing their college educations, opportunities for college women to attend leadership conferences, Tech Trek Science Camp scholarships and local community grants for mission-aligned projects.
