Kips Bay Decorator Show House invited House Tipster to visit Dallas and tour around a Georgian-style home in Old Preston Hollow’s Sunnybrook Estates. This year, 26 designers and architects from around the country are gathering to support programs for after-school recreation within the Bronx. Every year, the Show House amasses thousands of visitors to help raise donations for youths, aged six through 18. Renowned guests throughout the industry will showcase their talents and stir up the excitement for all of the upcoming trends of the season.
The participants joining the Show House will include celebrated names like A. Lantz Design, Bobbitt & Company Interior Design, Burkle Creative, Kathleen Walsh Interiors, Studio 6F and many other icons. According to James Druckman, President of the Board of the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club, “We’re looking forward to seeing how this group will transform the space, being our second Show House in Dallas and our first with many of these designers.”
Aside from President James Druckman, Co-Chairs Steele Marcoux, Jan Showers, Jean Liu, and Chad Dorsey will attend along Honorary Chairs Jamie Drake and Bunny Williams. Vice Chairs Trish Sheats and Laura Lee Clark Falconer will also be present.
For over 47, Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club have focused on the enhancement and growth of the city’s youth. By devoting their energy and by celebrating the brilliance of interior design, the organization has succeeded in striving for the betterment in the lives of New York City’s children. Since 1973, dedicated supporters have continually launched Show House events throughout Manhattan. The Dallas Show House of 2021 will, in fact, be one for the history books, as it is only the second affair the association had ever organized.
Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club had compiled over $25 million to date. In 2019, the KBBGC donated over $7.5 million in proceeds to the Social Recreation and Cultural Arts program, the Educational and Club Services program, and to its Fitness and Health Department. The local charities Dwell with Dignity, a nonprofit agency with the mission to help families stricken by poverty and homelessness, and The Crystal Charity Ball, a nonprofit that supports children in local Dallas neighborhoods, will accompany the event.
President Druckman said, “Beyond this visibility and name recognition that participation in the Kips Bay Decorator Show House entails, their dedication and talent will help us reach our fundraising goals this year, which are so crucial to enhancing after-school and enrichment programs for our city’s youth.”
The Show House will open the transformation to the rest of the public for one month at the start of September 24. As the nation-wide lead in design events, the Show House is expected to be the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club’s top fundraiser.
