“We will soon complete the Dodero Cottage and welcome new foster children who wouldn’t have otherwise had a home of their own,” said KidSanctuary President Connie Frankino. “This would not have happened without our overwhelmingly generous chairs, donors, designers and volunteers.”

Joe Fava, of Fava International, is the Dodero Cottage design chair.

“My group is excited to be working with so many designers and vendors who will generously and diligently create interiors for the second KidSanctuary home,” he said. “Each designer will be dedicating hours of time and resources to change a bare space into a world that is warm, inviting and safe for kids that truly deserve a home environment.”

Design teams include Fava and Amanda Dillon of Fava Design Group; A. Keith Powell Interior Design; Aldo Puschendorf Interiors; Angela Reynolds Design; Antrobus + Ramirez; Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale; B & G Design Group; Britto Charette Design; Deborah Wecselman Designs; FurzeBard & Associates; Mendez International; Pepe Calderin Design; Sam Robin Interior Design; Stephen Mooney Interiors; Superior Designer Services; William Bernard Design Group. Thom Filicia will be KidSanctuary’s celebrity guest.

Tickets for the hoedown, which will feature the “Tom Jackson Band,” are $200 per person.

KidSanctuary Campus, Inc. helps children who have been removed from their home because of neglect and abuse. The five-acre residential facility broke ground with its first home on October 5, 2011. The J.M. Rubin Foundation sponsored the first house to be named, The Rubin Cottage.
