Event description

Description

Please join us for this night of festive fun, food, and community.

It's our biggest fundraiser of the year and your best way to launch the holiday season!

Be part of a community celebration that launches our 2019 Lougheed House Christmas season of decor, events and programs.

Join a community of interior designers, artists, singers, chefs, dancers, distillers, models and musicians who will perform at & support our Big Reveal of the dazzling 2019 Christmas decor of Lougheed House, as donated by eight of Calgary's top interior design professionals. This year they have adorned the entire House with their inspired ideas around "eco/green Christmas." You'll learn so many repurpose/reuse/recycle design ideas that you can use in your own home, this season. It's Christmas decor with a big WOW factor, but a small footprint!

Watch and bid as Lea Romanowski, floral architect, creates wearable Christmas Couture (like the one, above) for our live auction.
