VIP Preview Day*
*Our traditional Opening Night Party is now an Opening Day Party. While we had certainly hoped to dance the night away with you, we are unable to host a large gathering. Instead, we will host a VIP Preview Day exclusively for our Benefactors, Sponsors, and Designers. We want to thank our amazing Opening Night Party Chair Flavia Harton for her hard work this year. We are excited for her to be back in 2021 for a special post-coronavirus event for our 2020 Benefactors, Sponsors, and Designers, tentatively scheduled for May 28, 2021, back at Silver Run Reserve.
This year's new VIP Preview Day will still be on Friday, August 21, but from 10 AM - 6 PM. Benefactors and Sponsors will receive a link to reserve a time to enjoy an intimate Insiders Tour with the team responsible for designing and building the home. Raise a glass to our designers and fellow supporters as you receive this once-in-a-lifetime (isn't that the truth!?) experience. Enjoy delightful bites from Epting Events, including Lee's Epting's famous pralines.
SHOWHOUSE PUBLIC OPENING
August 22 - September 5, 2020
9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Sprawling across nearly 300 acres of natural beauty and adjoining the Nantahala National Forest, lies Silver Run Reserve, the location of the 2020 Cashiers Designer Showhouse (CDS). Silver Run was originally assembled by the civic-minded Neely family as a private family estate nearly 40 years ago. Located within the prestigious southern corridor of Cashiers, Silver Run is in the midst of a revival as it is being transformed into a private, low-density, wonderfully amenitized mountain community. The 2020 Showhouse is a 3,000-square-foot Mountain Modern Cottage, custom-designed by the renowned Meyer Greeson Paullin Benson firm and built by Cashiers’ own Harris Custom Builders. With beautiful mountain and wooded views, and close to the center of the community and The Lodge, the Showhouse is surrounded by tranquility and beauty. Leading local, regional, and national interior designers will grace one of Cashiers' most storied properties with a collective aesthetic vision for a once-in-a-lifetime Showhouse.
The Cashiers Designer Showhouse is the Cashiers Historical Society's signature fundraising event. In partnership with Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles, CDS raises vital funds to support our mission and cultural programming. Scroll down to view our 2020 Designers and purchase your Benefactor Package.
