Design House is currently looking for volunteers to help ensure this is a successful fundraiser for the Shelter for Help in Emergency!
Every other year, a Charlottesville-area homeowner opens their heart and generously extends the use of her or his residence for the Shelter for Help in Emergency’s signature fundraising event-Design House. Designers and their vendors, assigned to individual rooms and spaces, showcase their talents and the latest interior design styles and techniques. The result is a unique tour for visitors, where each room reflects a designer’s creative vision and provides endless and inspiring ideas for the home. Ticket sales for the event go directly to helping local victims of domestic violence and their families.
House sitter volunteers are needed during the critical installation phase of Design House. House sitters will assist with directing deliveries, providing information to designers and workers, and will ensure access to the house. This is an excellent opportunity to see the Design House in its "before" stages and help with the process of creating Design House.
