The Junior League of Buffalo is looking for a home with historical and architectural value to be transformed into its 21st Decorators’ Show House next spring.

To be considered, the home must be located in the City of Buffalo (or within a 15-mile radius) and be at least 7,000 square feet. It should have two staircases, a minimum of a two-car garage, suitable yard space, and off-street parking. The house will need to be vacant from Jan. 1 to June 1, 2023. After its transformation by area decorators and artisans, the Show House will open to the public for about three weeks during April and May 2023.

Anyone with a referral can email Cindi McEachon, Show House Chair at [email protected].

The Junior League, in conjunction with The Buffalo News, has raised more than $4.8 million since 1981 to benefit the Western New York community through revenue generated by its Show Houses. Over the years, proceeds have been awarded to organizations such as the Chestnut Ridge Conservancy, West Side Bazaar, Torn Space Theatre, the Massachusetts Avenue Project, and Jericho Road Ministries.

The 2021 Decorators’ Show House at 800 Delaware Ave raised $315,000 for a community grant. Applications will be available in mid-June 2022 for qualified 501(c)(3) not-for-profit agencies in Buffalo and Western New York to apply.
