The Cooks Tour of Moorestown will be held on Wednesday, December 5, 2018! This annual event and holiday tradition will return for its 55th year, featuring beautifully decorated homes and businesses dressed for the holiday as well as the Community House of Moorestown to ring in the holiday season!
Event proceeds support Virtua's oncology services at Memorial hospital in Mt. Holly and the Samson Cancer Center, located in Moorestown. With your help, Virtua will be able to expand cancer treatment options while enabling patients to stay close to home during treatments.
The Cooks Tour was started in 1962 by the Curtis Auxiliary, an all-volunteer organization founded by a group of Moorestown women. It was named in honor of Dr. Howard M. Curtis, a pediatrician at what is now known as Virtua Memorial. They began hosting fundraising events in the community, like the Cooks Tour and the once popular Curtis Ball, to support the hospital. Over time, other auxiliaries were established throughout the region to form the Auxiliary Board to Virtua Memorial. Today, this board works together along with many community volunteers to host the annual Cooks Tour.
