Historical Society of Palm Beach County
 Honored American Red Cross 2009
Designers’ Show House Committee at Reception


WEST PALM BEACH, FL. (January 28, 2009) –More than 40 committee members, sponsors and designers were honored on January 8 at the Historical Society of Palm Beach County for a festive party for the 33rd American Red Cross Designers’ Show House, open through February 14.

An event benefiting the Greater Palm Beach Area Chapter of the American Red Cross, the Designers’ Show House is being held at the Providencia House, a historic home located at 1125 North Flagler Drive in the heart of West Palm Beach’s Providencia Park neighborhood.

With a goal to enrich the City of West Palm Beach with wonderful historic landmarks and homes, the money raised by the Historical Society stays in the community to benefit Palm Beach County.  Sharing a similar goal to better the local community, all money raised from the Show House stays local and goes directly to the American Red Cross to help provide essential disaster relief services to more than 1.5 million people in Palm Beach, Hendry, Okeechobee and Glades counties.

“As we celebrate the centennial birthday of Palm Beach County, we are excited to tie in this long-standing community event and partner with the American Red Cross for the Designers’ Show House,” said Kae Jonsons, Director of Development of the Historical Society. “The American Red Cross means so much to our community and we are proud to be a part of this significant fundraiser.”

Guests celebrated their efforts on the project while they enjoyed hors d'oeuvres, sipped champagne and cocktails, and were inspired by a speech on the history of the Providencia Park neighborhood that this year’s Designers’ Show House calls home— given by Harvey E. Oyer III, the Chairman of the Historical Society of Palm Beach County. Guests in attendance included Cristina and Desmond Keogh; Stacey and Michael Lampert; Stephen Mooney; Bill Kopp; Jennifer Garrigues; Mike Maniscalco; Mollie and Frank Maguire; Christopher Dunstan; Sylvia James; Penny and Keith Williams; Carl Minardo and
Lawrence Casey

Ticket Prices and Admission

General admission tickets to the Show House are $30.  Special pricing is available for groups of ten or more. The Show House will be open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Sunday from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.  All proceeds will benefit the American Red Cross Greater Palm Beach Area Chapter.  For more information and to reserve tickets please call 561-833-7711.

About the 2009 Designers’ Show House

The Designers’ Show House, from January 15 – February 14, 2009, is a much-anticipated annual event, bringing together acclaimed designers who designed and decorated the historic 1936 luxury home at 1125 North Flagler Drive in Providencia Park room-by-room.  The Show House welcomes nationally-known interior designers in addition to those from South Florida.  The event also incorporates the exterior and pool area with landscape designers lending their artistic touches to the Show House.

This year’s dedicated committee includes Desmond and Cristina Keogh, General Chairmen; Charlotte Moss, Honorary Chairman; Stephen Mooney and Bill Kopp, Design Chairmen; Keith Williams, Landscape Chairman; Frank Maguire, Boutique Chairman ; Melinda Collie, Journal Chairman; and Sylvia James, Preview Party Chairman.

About the American Red Cross:

For over 90 years, the American Red Cross Greater Palm Beach Area Chapter, which includes Glades, Hendry, Okeechobee and Palm Beach Counties, has provided relief to victims of disasters at home and abroad, teaches lifesaving skills, and supports military members and families. The American Red Cross, a charity and not a government agency, depends on voluntary contributions of time and money to perform its humanitarian mission.
