Kitchens in Bloom Home Tour

JLS held its annual Kitchens in Bloom Home Tour on May 4, 2014.  This year the tour featured exclusive homes in Panther Creek.  Each year the event allows attendees to tour each of the homes, and while the tour focuses primarily on kitchens, many of the homeowners open their entire homes for the event.  This is JLS’s largest fundraising event of the year.
