On Saturday, May 28, 2016 ARF kicked off the summer season with the 6th Annual Designer Showhouse at the ARF Thrift Shop in Sagaponack, chaired by Gordon Hoppe, Gigi Mahon, Lisa McCarthy, Alex Papachristidis and Marshall Watson along with Honorary Chair Mary McDonald. The shop was transformed into six rooms styled by some of New York’s most illustrious interior decorators. Each room incorporated ARF Thrift Shop items as well as pieces donated from the designers own collections. Guests sipped cocktails and perused the specially designed rooms, which ranged from a “Writers Summer Retreat” to a festive dining room set just for the Barkley Family in “Dinner Party at Dogtown Abbey.” Guests enjoyed wine donated by Channing Daughters Winery, vodka donated by Alpha Noble Vodka and hors d’oeuvres by Peter Ambrose as they mingled and shopped among the themed rooms. Thank you to everyone who helped make this event a success, especially the designers, Sam Allen, Tracey Cavaniola, Nancy Corzine, John Stedila and Tim Button, Lynda Sylvester and Eldon Wong.
