Guests of the evening will experience “A Moment in Time” at the magnificent Charles T. Fisher Mansion, a highly anticipated soiree that will pair inaugural tours of the 2018 Designers’ Show House with an exceptionally curated gala to follow on the estate grounds.

More than 40 acclaimed designers whose work is featured throughout the home will be onsite to mingle with patrons as they take in their transformative work. Live music will fill the air under the numerous tents in the garden where an exciting strolling dinner and open bar will be served. A provocative live-art installation, exciting live auction and social gifts from our event sponsors will further enhance the experience of those in attendance. This is most certainly an event not to be missed.

Proceeds support various community programs, including Project EAT which improves food security in the community by providing Education, Access and Tools, to those in need; as well as projects in connection with other social service organizations including Cass Community Services, The Empowerment Plan, Forgotten Harvest and Humble Design.

The Junior League of Detroit is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation.
