Six North Augusta homes decorated for the holidays will be on this year's Christmas Tour of Homes sponsored by the Beta Sigma Phi sorority.
"This is our 18th tour," said Linda Smiley, of Beta Sigma Phi.
The sorority members coordinate the tour each year to help students and charities in North Augusta.
Featured on this year's tour are the homes of Benny and Pat Knight, 373 Shoreline Drive' Dr. and Mrs. James Simons, 362 Shoreline Drive; Mr. and Mrs. Zane Christopher, 319 Osprey Point; Mr. and Mrs. Robin Lemmons, 609 Bramble Road; Mr. and Mrs. George Hensley, 6 Sedgewood Court; and Danny Purvis, 312 W. Forest Ave. Also on the tour will be Grace Fellowship Church, 507 W. Five Notch Road.
Mrs. Smiley said proceeds will benefit the North Augusta community.
"A majority of the money goes to scholarships, school wish lists and the North Augusta Boxing Club," she said. "Last year, we gave away five scholarships."
The money given to schools provides items not covered by school budgets, she said.
Proceeds from past tours have helped purchase calculators at Paul Knox Middle School and a scanner for the English department at North Augusta High School.
