— You can check out some holiday decor and help a good cause at the same time by visiting the Holiday House in Ramblewood at North Hills.

Custom builder Dixon/Kirby & Company is showcasing the 3,786 square foot home.

“We are excited about what this Holiday House represents. Those that tour the house will see how classic designs can be incorporated in an urban setting to create a home that is updated yet timeless, distinctive and singular, and above all, welcoming,” stated builder Mark Kirby.

The Holiday House is open to the public from Dec. 8 to Jan. 6. Tours run from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday, and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sundays.

Admission is $5 and proceeds go to support the nonprofit emergency shelter and rehabilitation programs at The Healing Place of Wake County.

The Healing Place also offers a detox center and recovery program. Approximately 70 percent of graduates are still sober a year after program completion.
