The Decorator Show House is the League’s largest event-based fundraiser. Proceeds from the Show House are used to fund its community projects and programs, which currently focus on the alleviation of hunger.

I was a frequent visitor at that house in the 1960s and 1970s. I can't wait to see how they update the decor from that time period.
