The 27th Annual Design Inspirations Fundraiser

2020 marks the 27th year for Design Inspirations, a fundraiser supported jointly by volunteers from the Fort Worth Alumnae Associations of Kappa Kappa Gamma and Pi Beta Phi. Gill Children’s Services, Inc. and Rivertree Academy have been chosen as this year’s charities.

The event itself features more than 60 elegantly designed tables, creatively designed by local designers and individuals. Seeing the tables and the amazing character of each one will inspire you to do more with your own beautiful things at home. Guests may view the tables at the Preview Party on Wednesday, March 25th or while enjoying a presentation from our keynote speaker and luncheon on Thursday, March 26th.
