Child Care Aware® of Eastern Kansas is back with a newly selected Designers’ Showhouse for 2019. In its 39th year, the Designers’ Showhouse is a fundraiser benefiting children by supporting Child Care Aware® of Eastern Kansas’ mission. It is a creative partnership between the agency, designers and craftsmen that will transform the chosen home for public tours, activities and resale. This year’s house is located in the Indian Woods area of southwest Topeka at 1111 SW Ottawa Trail.

The agency will begin celebrating this year’s Designers’ Showhouse with a Bare Bones Chili Supper Kick-Off event on Jan. 31, and a Bare Bones Preview Feb. 1 and 2. The preview allows the public to tour the Designers’ Showhouse before it is renovated and completely redecorated by local designers and craftsmen. This event is sponsored by the Topeka Area Building Association Professional Remodelers Council.

The Bare Bones Chili Supper Kick-Off event will be 5 to 8 PM on Thursday, Jan. 31, 2019. For $10 per person, attendees will receive a chili supper and a ticket to tour the home. Reservations for the Bare Bones Chili Supper Kick-Off are required. They can be made online at https://east.ks.childcareaware.org or by calling 785-357-5171, opt. 1.

The Designers’ Showhouse Bare Bones Preview will be 10 AM to 5 PM on Friday, Feb. 1, and Saturday, Feb. 2, 2019. Cost is $5 at the door. No reservations are required. The agency will be taking design suggestions again this year from the public in each of the design spaces.

Proceeds from this annual, grassroots fundraiser will assist with the Child Care Aware® of Eastern Kansas mission of supporting the development and early education of children by improving access to resources for families, including high-quality child care options. The agency offers families customized child care referrals, and links them to community resources to benefit their overall well-being and success. They also offer professional development and consultation services to area child care programs. All services focus on helping to ensure that children arrive at school with the skills needed for success. For advertising or sponsorship opportunities to support the project, please call 785-440-4507.
