The 2015 Massey Street of Hope was a 16-day event featuring 8 designer furnished homes on one street in Hallsley. The model homes were built and decorated to highlight the latest in interior decorating ideas, trends, and innovations in new homes with an emphasis on “What Women Want”. Guests paid a $10 admission fee to tour the homes and enjoy a variety of entertainment. In combination with funds from a matching grant, the proceeds of the Massey Street of Hope raised $1 million dollars to benefit VCU Massey Cancer Center.
Eight homes were featured in the Massey Street of Hope – six of which were sold prior to, during, or within weeks following the luxury home show.
