GREEN BAY - A group of talented designers is working together for a good cause. They're using their talents to transform a house on Monroe Avenue in Green Bay.
"The Designers for Hope event came out of the board talking about how we could raise more money to serve more people, and just to deepen the impact of those that we serve," said Shannon Wienandt, who serves as director for the House of Hope.
Seven designers have been spending the last few weeks working together to remodel 8 different rooms of the house.
"It's been very rewarding - and fun. I think that's why we all do it," said designer Shelly Kerwin.
Now that the rooms have been transformed, the community can tour the house for a fee. All proceeds will go to Green Bay's House of Hope, a shelter for homeless mothers ages 18 to 24 and their children.
"The young women who are going to benefit from this are my own girls' ages. And anything we can do to bring up young women, I think is really powerful," Kerwin said.
The Designers for Hope Showcase will take place over the next two weekends. Tickets are $15 in advance, and $20 at the door.
