MainStreet America elves present a holiday showcase like none other including a $10,000 charity donation for Lights of Hope décor contest.

Not only is snow falling on Main Street this year…but all 12 Design Tech showcase homes are decked out for the holidays. With each showcase home featuring a different theme, MainStreet America's 4th Annual Christmas on MainStreet is like walking into a holiday décor idea book.   Each of the 12 homes is decorated in a style befitting its unique home design which range from Spanish Charm to Texas Hill Country to Country French and more.  And, each home has the added benefit of supporting a charitable organization for the annual Lights of Hope event where one of the 11 participating charities will be awarded a $10,000 check for its décor.  Homes are open every Saturday from November 28 – December 19 from 6 – 9 p.m. with the Lights of Hope award presented on December 19 to the home with the most votes.

The 11 participating charities include:  Interfaith Ministries of the Woodlands; Helping A Hero; Susan G. Komen; Bread of Life Ministries; Houston SPCA; New Danville; Bridgewood Farms; Relay for Life; Hope (Batten's Disease); American Heart Association and Friends of Texas Wildlife. Supporting one of the 11 charities is easy.  Simply tour the homes and cast your vote with a $1 donation.  All donations are given directly to each of the participating charities.  The charity with the most votes will also receive a $10,000 donation check.
