Decorators’ Show House is a major community fundraiser presented by the Junior League of Buffalo and The Buffalo News that takes place every other year.
The August Feine House, 766 Ellicott St. in the heart of the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus, was the site of the 19th Decorators’ Show House and featured the work of more than 45 decorators and landscapers. The house is the newest addition on the Kevin Guest House (KGH) Campus and has been renamed the Russell J. Salvatore Hospitality House. It will soon host patients and families traveling to Buffalo for medical care.
Since 1981, Decorators’ Show Houses have raised more than $4 million to benefit 21 local cultural and human service organizations.
