EAST AURORA, N.Y. (WIVB) - This weekend marks the unveiling of the Junior League Decorator Showhouse.
The Junior League of Buffalo and the Buffalo News sponsor this big project. Friday marks the kick off of public showing of the house, which will be shown for another three weeks.
This ribbon cutting caps off a project by hundreds of volunteers and businesses that's been months in the making. They tackled dozens of rooms and spaces and nooks and crannies in this historic 14,000-square foot East Aurora home, which is now part of Knox Farm State Park.
Workers stripped wallpaper and paint, pulled up carpet and peeled off layers of outdated adornments. The mansion, once owned by the late Seymour and Jean Knox, has been fully transformed into a showplace that will attract tens of thousands of visitors over the next few weeks.
Friday night there will be a garden party with a polo theme, giving guests a first look at the finished house before it fully opens its doors to visitors with a $20 ticket Saturday through May 19.
This entire project is a fundraiser for local charities. Two years ago, the show house in Buffalo raised more than $200,000 for the Jericho Road Ministries.
