FORT MYERS, FL. (November 15, 2019)— Ronald McDonald House Charities® (RMHC) Southwest Florida, Kravet Inc., and Home & Design magazine are proud to announce Project Design Phase II Southwest Florida! In 2016, the original six bedrooms of the Ronald McDonald House, as well as the kitchen, dining room, common areas, restrooms, laundry room, and all of the original flooring were revamped entirely by 20 generous leaders in the interior design industry, in celebration of the organization’s 20th Anniversary.
Now, in the three short years following the opening of Golisano Children’s Hospital, the beloved “home-away-from-home” is bursting at the seams. By providing a temporary haven in a secure and comfortable environment among other families sharing a similar burden, RMHC gives families the ability to focus on the healing of their child. However, a consistently full House with a waiting list has made it imperative to add six bedrooms to the existing House, thereby doubling its occupancy. Hence, Project Design Phase II Southwest Florida!
“We are overjoyed to have this incredible opportunity once again,” said Laura Ragain, executive director of RMHC SWFL. “We are so grateful to have half of these amazing designers return for Phase II, and we welcome those that were unable to participate in 2016.”
Project Design 2016 Chair Suzanne Costa of Suzanne Costa Interiors and Jeffrey Fisher of Jeffrey Fisher Home will lead as design co-chairs of Project Design Phase II. “I’m thrilled to be a part of Project Design Phase II and delighted to have the talented Jeffrey Fisher as my co-chair,” said Costa.
Participating designers and vendors will be attending a Designer Kick-Off Luncheon at the Kravet showroom on November 25th.
“We were excited to learn about the expansion of the Fort Myers House and jumped at the opportunity to sponsor,” said Ellen Kravet. At Kravet, we believe in the transformative power of design. We are honored to support the Ronald McDonald House in the best way we know how: by making it better for the families who will stay there.”
