EP Henry is responsible for the fabulous outdoor living space at the Design Home, where the party took place.
The Design Home is an annual home building event organized to showcase the best of the best in Philadelphia. It is coordinated and run by Philadelphia Magazine; sponsors are listed on the website. The decor and furnishings, both inside and out, are on loan from local businesses. The house is currently on the market.
For the next few weeks, the Design Home is open to the public. Tickets are $20, and 100% of all proceeds go to the Ronald McDonald House, a charitable organization that provides a home away from home for families of children with life-threatening illnesses receiving care at local Philadelphia hospitals.
Here are a few upcoming events at the Design Home that you may be interested in:
1. The Design-a-Palooza on Saturday, September 25, from 9:30 AM to 11:00 AM at the Design Home (no RSVP or special tickets required) for an opportunity to speak with EP Henry designers and have your “before” photos transformed by professional designers to create a realistic “after” image using their state-of-the-art PRO Landscape Software.
Each PSMM member was invited to submit their own backyard pictures for this service, and we all received our Before and After Possibilities at the party.
2. Green Day on Oct 2 is an opportunity to increase your stormwater IQ and get tax credits in return with an easy-to-follow demonstration on permeable guidelines and township standards.
3. Finally, there is a 5% discount for 5 Saturdays (September 25, October 2 and October 9) with EP Henry matching 5% as donation to Ronald McDonald House.
The Design Home is open to the public until October 10. Hours are Thursdays from 12-8, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday from 11-4. It is closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. There is no parking at the site. Complimentary parking and shuttle service is offered at 1201 Sumneytown Pike in Spring House, PA.
