Red Cross HQ to be Showcase House

leave a comment »

The Cravens Estate, which serves as home to the San Gabriel Valley Pomona Valley chapter of The American Red Cross, will be featured as the 46th annual Pasadena Showcase House of Design next spring. The property is located at 430 Madeline Drive, in the South Orange Grove neighborhood of Pasadena.

Twenty-six interior designers and seven exterior designers will take part in the project. “Often we say PSHA ‘transforms’ a property, said Beverly Marksbury, benefit chairman.

“But that’s not quite the case with the Cravens Estate. We’re working with a team of experts in historical architecture and preservation to revitalize the property rather than renovate it. Yet, while we’re taking the greatest care to respect he estate’s past, our designers will also make use of cutting edge design technology, trends and creativity.”

The Red Cross will operate out of 1668 S. Garfield Ave., Alhambra, from Dec .14 until June 4. The office phone number will remain the same, (626) 799-0841. The Pasadena Showcase House of Design will take place from April 18-May 16.
