Led by President/CEO J.D Trueblood, Turtle Creek Association is proactive, driven and has a 5 year strategic plan set in place. It consists of enhancing, protecting the natural beauty, landscapes and stabilization of the creek's banks. The plan of action addresses pollution control, restoring bridges, improving safety and introducing cultural art. Both private and public efforts are catalysts to the growth and continued success of this pioneering non profit. It is home to loyal supporters that aid through contributions such as memberships, donations and fundraising events. A highlight for 2022 is their 21st annual Tour of Homes. The “Living Large” tour takes its visitors into their dream homes for an exclusive look at the fine architecture and surrounding green luxurious neighborhood.

Washington Jazz Band whose balanced tempos paired well with the tasty dining spread. As part of the evening, an energetic Live Auction feature was vibrant and included items exclusive to Tour of Homes Benefit. .
