Make peace and war ‘Stor­age Wars’ to fea­ture redesigned stor­age units ben­e­fit­ing Gulf­stream Good­will

Sun Sentinel Palm Beach Edition - Society Scene - Palm Beach - - Scene & Be Seen -

STORE Self Stor­age & Wine Stor­age in Palm Beach Gar­dens is host­ing the sec­ond an­nual “Stor­age Wars” fundraiser Nov. 6.

The event, ben­e­fit­ing Gulf­stream Good­will In­dus­tries, will have a new twist this year: a De­signer Chal­lenge. After a suc­cess­ful in­au­gu­ral event that ex­ceeded fundrais­ing ex­pec­ta­tions, the com­mit­tee de­cided to dou­ble the fun. Prom­i­nent South Florida in­te­rior de­sign­ers and artists will be chal­lenged to trans­form large, mun­dane stor­age bays into fab­u­lously fur­nished rooms. Only pre­mium items they se­lect from Good­will’s 28 re­tail stores in Palm Beach and Martin coun­ties can be used.

Guests will have the op­por­tu­nity to bid on their fa­vorite stor­age bay and win its en­tire con­tents, and also vote for the most trans­formed bay. One de­signer or de­sign team will win two round-trip tick­ets on JetBlue.

De­signer Chal­lenge com­peti­tors will in­clude:

•Sean Rush - Sean Rush Ate­lier, West Palm Beach

•Susan Mor­gan - Susan Mor­gan In­te­ri­ors, Stu­art; teamed with Lisa Spalt - Lisa Spalt De­signs, Del­ray Beach

•Tr­isha Estabrook and Sa­man­thaNor­ley - Ban­don Blue De­signs, Jupiter

•Lisa Michael - Lisa Michael In­te­ri­ors, Del­ray Beach

•Or­lando Chi­ang - artist, sculp­tor, West Palm Beach

The de­sign­ers join com­mit­tee mem­bers Scott Sim­mons, Ste­wart Auville, Drew Fein­berg, Bet­tye Per­rine, Han­nah Sosa, Kimberly Rick­etts and Enid At­wa­ter in el­e­vat­ing this fundrais­ing ver­sion of A&E’s “Stor­age Wars” to greater suc­cess.

The evening will be filled with ex­cite­ment and sur­prises - and steals and deals. Culi­nary tast­ings will be pro­vided by area restau­rants, along with wine, beer, and soft drinks; en­ter­tain­ment and a silent auc­tion are also planned. In ad­di­tion, there will be buys to dis­cover on the “Good­will Trea­sures” sale ta­bles, in­clud­ing jew­elry, ac­ces­sories and de­signer col­lectibles.

The pre­sent­ing spon­sor, STORE Self Stor­age & Wine Stor­age - lo­cated at 11010 N. Mil­i­tary Trail, Palm Beach Gar­dens, is donat­ing the large stor­age bays, along with their event fa­cil­ity.

Dress is ca­sual chic, and tick­ets are $25 in ad­vance or $30 at the door and come with two drink tick­ets. “Stor­age Wars De­signer Chal­lenge” will most likely sell­out, so early ticket pur­chases are en­cour­aged - do so at www.gulf­stream good­
