At the same time, Charles Pavarini has been named Chairman of the Design Committee, and will be responsible for leading the design committee in raising awareness, marketing and fundraising for the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club. He replaces Dick Ridge and Roderick Denault, who have both dedicated many years in service to the design committee and the show house.
Williams has been a long-standing supporter of the Boys & Girls Club and the Show House and has created some of the Show House’s most memorable rooms over the years. Pavarini has also created a number of inspiring rooms for past show houses and has led various fundraising programs for Kips Bay, including the annual Designer Cruise and other important initiatives.
“We are thrilled to have such respected and supportive leaders such as Bunny Williams and Charles Pavarini leading the important 40th year of the Kips Bay Decorator Show House and our various design industry related events,” said Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club executive director Dan Quintero. “We appreciate and honor the contributions of Pat Carey, Dick Ridge and Roderick Denault and the service they have provided. We look forward to their continued support of our various projects.”
The Kips Bay Decorator Show House has been a showcase for great American and international interior design. Through sponsorship, gala and ticket sales to over 20,000 visitors, the house typically raises more than $1 million annually to support the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club’s essential after-school and enrichment programs for more than 12,000 young people at 10 locations in the Bronx.
