The Mother’s Day tour of Summerville cottages and gardens, designed to raise money for Dorchester Habitat for Humanity Women Build, takes place next Sunday.

The group had planned not to hold the event, but it has been so successful that it will take place one more year, says organizer Diane Frankenberger.

A new fundraiser honoring mothers will take place in 2013.

The 2012 Historic Downtown Summerville Cottage Tour will feature 10 locations shown during the previous two years. It takes place 1-5 p.m.

Among the cottages and gardens visitors will see are:

“Tickled Pink,” 300 S. Main St., a late 1800s cottage with a name reflecting its exterior and the way its owners, Bunny and Jeff Lucarelli, feel about living in it.

“Mimi’s Garden,” 317 S. Laurel St., and the old footpath through Summerville, which is located on the land.

“Cuda Cottage,” 103 S. Laurel St., the home of Perry and Julie Cuda, and one of three houses built from scrap lumber during the 1920s by a father for his daughters.

Tickets, which cost $15, are sold at the Dorchester Habitat office and ReStore, 101 Greyback Road in Summerville; on the organization’s website at; and at People, Places & Quilts, 129 W. Richardson Ave. .

A ticket for Sculpture in the South, an annual show and sale taking place May 19-20 in downtown Summerville, is included in the tour price. For more on the tour, call 851-1414.
