Creativity powers fundraising during Red Shield ReDesign
Furniture and home accessories turned into new one-of-a-kind pieces for auction through the Salvation Army of Broward County’s Red Shield ReDesign Bash presented by Lorraine Thomas at The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale.
About 40 artists restored, redesigned, rehabilitated and repurposed the pieces for the event, which raised $74,000.
The re-designers came from a variety of backgrounds, including Lee Dahlberg of furniture, design company You Son of A Bench; Roman Foster of Southern Sands Design; Dana Duquesne of Yacht Décor; Devin Chase of Jewel Toned Interiors; and Nadine Floyd of the Media Lab.
Actor Martin Amado emceed the night, and the guests chose Roman Foster’s contribution for the 2018 People’s Choice Award.
Proceeds will support shelter, feeding and case management programs at the Salvation Army of Broward County.
