The Showhouse is a fundraising event to benefit the mission and community projects of the Junior League of Miami (JLM).It will feature a unique home with superb Miami architecture, on loan for this event, which will be transformed by top designers and temporarily opened to the public.
With a goal of $500,000, the Showhouse will be the Junior League of Miami's largest fundraiser. Proceeds from this event will support JLM programs and projects focused on women and children at risk. Exposure from the event will increase awareness of community needs and engage past, current, and future JLM members. Beyond ticket sales, funds will be raised through partnerships, corporate sponsorships, and special events, which may include preview tours, parties, Junior League of Miami events, and broker open houses.
The 2016 Showhouse will take place at The Kampong, a National Tropical Botanical Garden. The Kampong is nestled on 11 acres along Biscayne Bay in Coconut Grove and was home to famed horticulturist David Fairchild. Designers will enhance three cottages, along with areas of the Fairchild-Sweeney home at The Kampong, which is listed in the National Registry of Historic Places.
Selected interior designers will transform their assigned room, reflecting their personal tastes and ideas. The house is then opened to the public, offering the designers an opportunity to showcase their decorating talents to the local community.
The Showhouse is scheduled for April 7 to 24, 2016. JLM volunteers will staff the Showhouse six days a week from 11am to 5pm and during select evening events.
The Junior League of Miami anticipates between 4,000 and 7,000 guests will attend the Showhouse and its supporting events during the three week run.
A media partner will be secured to provide pre– and post–event coverage of the Showhouse and the related activities. Additionally, JLM will promote the event through pole banner advertising on US1, in local newspapers, on social media, and on pertinent websites.
Partnerships with travel and visitors bureaus will be secured.
