What is Design Appétit?

Event Co-Chairs: Andy and Ainslee Crum

The 6th Annual Design Appétit will be an exciting 3-part event. Thursday, Sept. 8th kicks off with a lunch along with our special guest speaker, Breegan Jane, then follows that evening with a gala for the senses. The event closes on Saturday, Sept. 10th is a day for the kids. We are serving the mission of Focus on Home – providing furniture to families transitioning out of homelessness. We provide 50 beds for 50 kids in the city who do not have a bed of their own…we host a Day at Scissortail Park for them and deliver their beds the next day.
