Black Tie International:
KidSanctuary 2nd Annual Hoedown


Stephanie Kantis, Michelle Boren, Francis Leidy Mackay

Stephanie Kantis, Michelle Boren, Francis Leidy Mackay



 ON MARCH 22, 2014

Event to celebrate local designers for making Dodero Cottage

a home for children in need 


KidSanctuary Campus, Inc. has just announced Michelle Boren, Stephanie Kantis and Francie Leidy Mackay as Chairs of the second annual KidSanctuary Hoedown to be held on Saturday March 22nd, 2014 at The National Croquet Center in West Palm Beach. The hoedown will be held to support the construction of the second home on the KidSanctuary Campus while honoring the 14 designer teams who will use their individual design innovations for the new Dodero Cottage; which will officially open to children later next spring.

Says KidSanctuary President Connie Frankino, “The excitement of planning our second annual Hoedown with our new, lovely chairwomen is proof we are close to fulfilling our mission. We will soon complete the Dodero Cottage and welcome new foster children who wouldn't have otherwise had a home of their own. This would not have happened without our overwhelmingly generous chairs, donors, designers and volunteers. We are looking forward to this event and completing our campus."

With its new chairs, the western themed gala hopes to grow even further in its second year, which was sold out in its inaugural season.  A musical performance by the legendary Tom Jackson Band will be returning as the musical headliner for the event, which always keeps audiences on their feet. Tom has shared the stage with Nashville Recording Artists: Jason Aldean, Rascal Flatts, Little Big Town, Billy Currington, Jake Owen, Craig Campbell, Darius Rucker, Justin Moore, Eric Church, Colt Ford and recently, Brantley Gilbert, Alan Jackson and Randy Travis.

Says Event Co-Chair Michelle Boren, “I’m thrilled to be a part of this year’s hoedown in creating a future safe haven for children who have been through so much.  With our event venue at The National Croquet Center, The Tom Jackson Band, and great support behind us, we hope to create added awareness to KidSanctuary while also having a lot of fun.”    

Dodero Cottage Design Chair, Joe Fava of Fava International, adds, “My group is excited to be working with so many designers and vendors who will generously and diligently create interiors for the second KidSanctuary home. Each designer will be dedicating hours of time and resources to change a bare space into a world that is warm, inviting and safe for kids that truly deserve a home environment. And of course, we will be excited to stomp our boots and kick up our spurs to celebrate the completion of the home.”

Participating showcase show house design teams include: Design Chair, Joe Fava and Amanda Dillon of Fava Design Group, A. Keith Powell Interior Design, Aldo Puschendorf Interiors, Angela Reynolds Design, Antrobus + Ramirez, the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, B & G Design Group, Britto Charette Design, Deborah Wecselman Designs, FurzeBard & Associates, Mendez International, Pepe Calderin Design, Sam Robin Interior Design, Stephen Mooney Interiors, Superior Designer Services, William Bernard Design Group, and Thom Filicia as KidSanctuary’s Celebrity Guest.
