As a professional interior designer, it’s quite literally my job to love all pretty things for the home, and to shop for them often. If, in doing so, I can win a few treasures to feather my own nest, all the better! Which is why I am heading to the respective—and adjacent—showrooms of elite Rancho Mirage home retailers Hayman & Summers and PIRCH on the evening of Thursday, December 4, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. If you’ve never been to either of these amazing repositories of stunning home décor, appliances, and accessories, you’re missing out. They are located next door to each other at 71-905 Highway 111, right across from The River.

At this event, which is being billed as a joint Holiday Open House to benefit Boys & Girls Clubs of Coachella Valley, Hayman & Summers manager Eveleen Farzaneh, and PIRCH manager Jim Murdock, not only promise attendees a viewing of current collections but the chance to enjoy complimentary wine, hors-d’oeuvres, and holiday sweets—and to meet other members of the design, retail, and lay communities.

The benefit works this way: For sale during the event will be $1 tickets giving all present the chance to win prizes worth hundreds of dollars each from both retailers, with 100% of proceeds donated to BGCCV. From PIRCH, the prize will be a spa and wine package; from Hayman & Summers, on the block will be oversized decorative ceramic fruit (approximately 23” wide, 31” high, and weighing 80-100 lbs.) designed exclusively in Thailand for the retailer. I plan on purchasing A LOT of tickets. You can’t win if you don’t play—and it’s all for such a good cause.

BGCCV is a member chapter of Boys & Girls Clubs of America, serving thousands of youth throughout the Coachella Valley with clubhouses in Desert Hot Springs, La Quinta, Indio, Coachella, and Mecca. The organization’s afterschool and summer programs, activities, guidance, and mentorship play a critical part in providing the valley’s young people—particularly those in need—with the tools to build successful, satisfying and significant lives. www.bgcofcv.com.
