The 31st Annual Design Inspirations Fundraiser

2024 marks the 31st 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 Breakthrough of Fort Worth 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 6th or while enjoying a presentation from our keynote speaker and luncheon on Thursday, March 7th.

Design Inspirations is pleased to announce Gil Schafer III as our 2024 speaker

Award-winning architect Gil Schafer III is one of the country’s leading experts on contemporary classical architecture. A member of Architectural Digest’s AD 100, a winner of Veranda’s “Art of Design Award,” and a recipient of the Arthur Ross Award for Architecture, he holds a Master of Architecture from the Yale School of Architecture and is the author of the bestselling books The Great American House and A Place to Call Home. He opened his eponymous firm G. P. Schafer Architect in 2002 and renamed the firm Schafer Buccellato & Partners in the fall of 2023.

Gil serves on nonprofit advisory and trustee boards, including Yale School of Architecture Dean’s Council and the board of the Thomas Jefferson Foundation. He also served as president and then chairman of The Institute of Classical Architecture & Art, the nation’s leading resource for the classical tradition in architecture and the allied arts, for over a decade. His work has been featured in numerous national and international publication, including Architectural Digest, Elle Décor, Veranda, Town & Country, Vogue, The New York Times, and The Wall Street Journal. Gil regularly lectures around the country on the continued relevance of classical residential design, and when he’s not traveling for work, he divides his time with his family between New York City, the Hudson Valley, and Maine.
