Fighting Cancer With Design For A Cure

FIND YOUR OWN TOP DESIGN AT DESIGN FOR A CURE: INTERIORS

An integration of art and design to find a cure for colon cancer
Design for A Cure:™ gives you a glimpse into the latest trends in interior design at the first annual Design for a Cure: Interiors. This event allows you to tour a “Seasonal Showhouse” at the Belgravia Group’s 565 Quincy Lofts and Condominiums, where four condominium units will feature four different designs inspired by the four seasons: winter, spring, summer, fall. Discuss your own design dilemmas with the design team from each participating design group – Room & Board, Design Studio/Roche Bobois, Mitchell Putlack Interiors, Inc., and Schreyer and Associates.
Taste your way through the seasons at the Grand Opening VIP event on Thursday, October 1, 2009 from 5:30 – 8:00 pm. This event will feature seasonally inspired cocktails and hors d’oeuvres created by Chicago-area chefs, live jazz music by the Dave Gordon Group and exclusive remarks by Dr. Jeffrey Wayne of the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University.
Design your own happy hour on Friday, October 1, 2009 from 5:30-8:00 pm. This lively cocktail party will feature live music by The Black Oil Brothers. Also enjoy access to a private bowling alley, putting green, movie theatre and game room.
A public viewing of the “Seasonal Showhouse” will take place on Saturday, October 3 through Sunday, October 11, 2009 from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm.
Design for a Cure:™ was founded in July 2009 by interior designer and colon cancer survivor Lauren Schreyer. Diagnosed with colon cancer in 2006, Lauren became aware of the importance of early detection and quality treatment as it relates to the success of patient care. This life altering diagnosis compelled Lauren to use her experience with art and design to advance cutting-edge research of this deadly disease that affects over 106,000 new patients in the U.S. every year. Through Lauren’s efforts and community support, Design for a Cure: is now a non-profit organization utilizing art to fund science and find a cure for colon cancer.
All proceeds from Design for a Cure: Interiors proudly support colon cancer research at the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University. By supporting this event, you can help save the lives of countless individuals – both in Chicago and worldwide.

Working with Lauren has been a wonderful experience. We are very excited about the models and hope for a great turnout.

I will post pictures of the event on the blog in the near future!
