The Women's Board announces tickets are on sale for The First Coast Design Show
By: Women's Board Wolfson Children's
The fundraising event benefitting Wolfson Children's Hospital is Dec. 1-3, at the Prime Osborn Convention Center. The 2023 First Coast Design Show, "The Art of Gathering," honors the long-standing tradition of collecting and celebrates the relationships that are nurtured throughout the home. To purchase tickets, visit FirstCoastDesignShow.com.
"We are excited to celebrate the art of gathering at the 2023 First Coast Design Show," said Kendra McCrary, President of The Women's Board of Wolfson Children's Hospital. "The art of gathering is about creating spaces that encourage relationships, community and joy. We hope everyone will join us and celebrate the relationships that are nurtured around the table and throughout the home when loved ones come together. Most importantly, the show supports our commitment to raise $1.5 million for two new Kids Kare Mobile Intensive Care Units (ICUs), part of Wolfson Children's Hospital's Neonatal and Pediatric Critical Care Transport fleet, by 2024."
On Friday, Dec. 1, the First Coast Design Show will open in the morning with lectures by designers Angie Hranowsky and Melanie Turner. There will be a flower workshop and a "Booth Crawl" with designer Juli Catlin. On Friday evening, the Opening Night Gala features dinner and dancing alongside curated antiques and art and garden dealers with entertainment by DJ Lucy Wrubel.
On Saturday, Dec. 2, lectures include designer and lifestyle expert Danielle Rollins and artist Aldous Bertram. There will be a table setting experience and a cocktail demonstration.
On Sunday, Dec. 3, a "Bubbles and Booth Crawl" with Stephanie Jarvis will be followed by the signature grand finale event, the Children's Fashion Show, featuring more than 30 models who are current or former Wolfson Children's Hospital patients. In collaboration with the Cummer Museum, the Children's Fashion Show honors the inspiration of fashion and self-expression with the theme, "Dress to Inspire with the Cummer Museum." Dillard's, a longtime sponsor, will provide the clothing to light up the runway. A reception will take place immediately following the Children's Fashion Show.
Show hours are 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Dec. 1, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Dec. 2-3. General show admission is $15 and features antiques, art and garden dealers from around the southeast. The show also presents a gallery wall of local art that is available for purchase, with 50% of the proceeds going directly to the 2023 Kids Kare Mobile ICU Funding Target.
The Opening Night Gala, lectures, workshops, demonstrations, and the children's fashion show are ticketed events and ticket quantity is limited.
