In the Spring of 2018, the Junior League of High Point brought back Kitchen Thyme Tour, a successful fundraiser event previously hosted by the JHLP nearly 10 years ago. The event featured seven exquisite High Point homes and provided attendees the opportunity to tour each home while learning about interior design and decor. Thank you to the wonderful individuals who opened their homes for our event and to all of our sponsors for your generous support of the JHLP.
