Volunteers Needed for Magnolia Designer Show House
CARTERSVILLE, Ga.- Sept. 23, 2016: Advocates for Children is calling for volunteers with a love of design and a few hours to spare to ensure the success of the Magnolia Designer Show House, which is taking place from Wednesdays through Sundays Oct. 19 through Nov. 13.
Volunteers are needed in the role of docents at the house during the hours that it is open to the public. This includes such duties as registration and ticket sales on-site, as well as answering questions, directing guests, and welcoming them into the home. As the home is not accessible for those with mobility issues, there are limited spots available for those who cannot use the narrow staircase or hallways. Volunteers may sign up as individuals or as groups at AdvoChild.org/MagVolunteer.
“Being a volunteer at the Magnolia Designer Show House is a great way to experience this beautiful show home,” said Advocates for Children Events Manager Melissa Warren. “Anyone can sign up to help, and we would love to hear from people who have assisted in similar projects before, as well as new volunteers who would like to be a part of this amazing experience.”
The Magnolia Designer Show House is located in one of the historic districts of Cartersville. Atlanta Magazine, Atlanta magazine’s HOME, and Beverly Baribault Design Group (BBDG) are opening the home to the public for four weeks with ticket proceeds going to benefit Advocates for Children.
Tickets are currently available to tour the home that was originally designed in 1940 by the Smith & Daves architectural firm of Atlanta and inspired by a drawing by Philip Trammell Shutze – a friend of the residence’s original owners, Dargan and Lucille Cole. Available for purchase both online at AtlantaMagazine.com/Magnolia and at the door for $20, tickets are good for any day that the home is open for self-guided tours. Hours for Magnolia Designer Show House are Wednesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sundays from 1 to 4 p.m. Oct. 19-Nov. 13. Private group tours are also available.
The Magnolia Designer Show House includes an incredible lineup of design talent who are transforming the house from bare walls and studs to a beautiful home for the homeowners.
