Faith Refuge Raises Money Through Decorator House

Faith Mission's Decorator Show House wrapped up Sunday evening with 17 decorators and three days of sightseeing. The purpose of the event is to showcase area businesses while also support Faith Refuge.

Glitz and glam filled a home on Avondale from the inside and out.

"I had to come see what the decorators had done, they always have such great ideas," said visitor Doris King.

This second annual Decorator Show took five months of planning with more than a dozen people steering the event. The first on the to do list was to find a home on the market; after that was picked the next was to get businesses to buy a room to decorate.

"We go and talk to the decorators (businesses) about it. Of course a lot of the decorators this time were decorators in 2011 so we had a lot of repeat," said Shirley Craft, co-chair of the show. "This year it was a bigger house so we've added a few that we didn't have last year."

Marcia Bernhardt owns Eastern Treasures a local antique store. She said the setting was perfect to showcase her items, but perhaps a more alluring aspect of the show is what it benefits.

"Faith Refuge is I think a wonderful program to separate the women and children from the men at Faith Mission," she said.

"It's phenomenal what this home can mean to these women and children," said Craft.

Last year more than $21,000 was raised. This year organizers hope to surpass that.

Faith Refuge is holding it's grand opening on East Hatton Road, Thursday. The public is invited to attend the ceremony at 4 p.m.

Faith Mission is still raising funds for Faith Refuge. To help you can enter to win a Harley Davidson with a $50 donation. The drawing will be held May 19. You can purchase your ticket at Red River Harley Davidson or Faith Mission.
