The Southern Living Inspired Community Street of Hope is an 18-day event featuring eight designer furnished dream homes. These homes are all Southern Living home plans that showcase the latest in interior decorating ideas, trends, and innovations in new homes.
ALL PARTNERSHIP PROCEEDS WILL DIRECTLY BENEFIT THE CHARITIES. The fund raising goal for the Southern Living Inspired Community Street of Hope in Hallsley is $700,000–with an educational emphasis. Partnership proceeds raised from the Southern Living Inspired Street of Hope will fund cancer research grants at VCU Massey Cancer Center and fund a scholarship endowment at the VCU School of Business for underprivileged Richmond area youths. The proceeds will come from a combination of ticket sales, sponsorships, special events, and two Homes of Hope. If you are interested in becoming a partner in this worthwhile event, contact us.
The event is in Hallsley, in Chesterfield County, developed by East West Communities. Hallsley is a planned community in historic Midlothian, just 20 minutes from downtown Richmond. It features architecturally distinct custom homes in a serene setting. The Hallsley Information Center is open daily and is located in the Hallsley Residents Club at 3900 Brightwalton Road, Midlothian VA, 23112.
In addition to the latest interior design trends in furniture, window treatments & painting, The Southern Living Inspired Street of Hope will feature hundreds of great new interior design ideas for the home – from the newest counter top selections to the hottest designer flooring. This year’s homes feature amazing room themes that capture the lifestyle needs of today’s homeowner.
After touring the homes, be sure to check out the Street of Hope Marketplace, a unique shopping experience. And, don’t forget to enjoy local cuisine from Café Caturra and RVA’s hottest food trucks. In addition to the showcase homes, there is a full calendar of events to add to the fun, which includes a Thursday night concert series – “Concerts of Hope.”
