Home design enthusiasts are marking their calendars for the “Tour for a Cure” event hosted by Toebben Builders along with Housetrends, Keller Williams Advisors and the Dwell Well Group.
“Tour for a Cure” invites the public into the home of John Toebben, president of Toebben Builders, and his wife Dana. Their 8,000 sq. ft. river view home will be open to guests on August 26 and 27 from noon until 7 p.m., preceded by a special VIP Party on Friday, August 25.
All proceeds benefit the Alzheimer’s Association of Greater Cincinnati, providing free, local programs such as Family Care Consultations, Family Support Groups, Helpline and TrialMatch™ — in addition to vital research.
The breathtaking estate, located in Hebron, Kentucky, is tucked back in The Reserve at Rivers Pointe, a stunning master planned community that includes a boarding stable built with horse lovers in mind. Features of the home include, but are far from limited to, a beautiful covered porch, custom built pool, wine vault, gourmet kitchen and swing bed.
“We love the outdoors, and our home really reflects that,” Toebben says. “It’s often difficult to fall asleep on the swing bed with such a beautiful view, spanning five or so miles across Northern Kentucky and the Ohio River Valley.”
In addition to the tour, event-goers are invited to meet the masterminds and craftsmen behind the home for creative insight and inspiration, a unique feature the Toebben family hopes will add to the overall experience.
A personal connection
Although the Toebben family has done other tours for local charities in the past, inspiration to aid the Alzheimer’s Association of Greater Cincinnati was an easy decision.
Toebben’s mother battled Alzheimer’s disease for many years before she passed away in 2006.
“Between my wife and I, my father, my siblings … it takes the whole family to help your loved one in their fight against Alzheimer’s,” Toebben reflects. “It remains incurable, which is so hard to believe in today’s society. The numbers of those affected is just staggering.”
Having the opportunity to give back in this way was undoubtedly very meaningful for the Toebbens.
“Between wanting to help local charities and people like my mother, we’re really just hoping to do some good,” he says.
Tickets can be purchased online through Event Brite.
“It’s still early, but we’re certainly expecting it to be a hit,” Toebben says.
