For more than 20 years, the SML Home Tour has raised money for local charities. Over the years, the event has raised $3.7 million.
This year, there are eight homes on the tour, including the McKown home. Pam and Rick McKown have spent the last 10 years doing most of the work themselves on their dream home.
"We love our community. We love the lake," Pam says. "It just seemed like a way we could be a part of it."
This year's event benefits eight different charities: Agape, Bedford Pregnancy Center, CASA Central Virginia, Free Clinic of Franklin County, Free Clinic of Central Virginia, Lake Christian Ministries, Feeding America SWVA, and SML Good Neighbors.
