There is no cost for the tour, but virtual attendees will have the opportunity to donate any time during the virtual tour by clicking a “donate now” link and making a gift through the agency’s secure online portal.

This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Designers’ Showhouse, located at 2855 SW Fairway Drive in Topeka, near 29th and Topeka Boulevard. This 5,882 square foot home is adjacent to the Topeka Country Club golf course. This incredible house features great main-floor living space including the living room, kitchen, dining room, powder bath, master suite, two bedrooms with a bath in between, and main floor laundry. Above the garage, you can find a complete “apartment” with bedroom, bath, living room, and kitchenette – perfect for a college student, legislator, caregiver, or for use as a mother-in-law’s suite. The lower level provides a huge family room, half bath, and the potential of a fifth bedroom.

The Designers’ Showhouse is a fundraiser benefiting children by supporting Child Care Aware® of Eastern Kansas’ mission. It is a creative partnership between the agency, designers, and craftsmen that will transform the home that was purchased by the agency for tours and resale.

Proceeds from this annual, grassroots fundraiser will assist with the Child Care Aware® of Eastern Kansas mission of supporting the healthy development of young children by improving access to high-quality child care options and educational resources for families and early childhood professionals.
