For five years, the Overton Hotel has built large gingerbread houses in an effort to collect donations for the Texas Boys Ranch each holiday season.

There will be an official unveiling Friday, December 2 at 2 p.m. in the Overton Hotel lobby.

The ceremony will include appearances from Executive Chef Doug Noxon and General Manager Kurt Metcalf. The president of the Texas Boys Ranch, John Sigle, and his staff will also join the ceremony to officially open the Gingerbread House to the public. The house is available for anyone to view between Friday, December 2 and Saturday, December 31.

Donations to the Texas Boys Ranch can be made at the Overton Hotel’s main desk by purchasing a $5 decoration or a $100 corporate sponsorship. Additional donations can be made through purchases at Pecan Grill.
