JUNIOR LEAGUE OF TORONTO SHOWHOUSE

JUNIOR LEAGUE OF TORONTO TOLD 50 DESIGNERS TO “GO TO THEIR ROOM”AT MCLEAN HOUSE SEE THE RESULTS MAY 8-31, 2009

Attention: Arts/Entertainment Editor, Health/Medical Editor, Media Editor, News Editor, Photo Editor TORONTO, ONTARIO, MEDIA ADVISORY--(Marketwire - April 23, 2009) - The Junior League of Toronto told "fifty designers to go their room" and the result is the newly refurbished McLean House on the grounds of Sunnybrook Health Centre. The designers will feature their work from May 8th to May 31st, when it officially opens to the public.

This "spectacular" home, once known as a key Toronto party-house in the 1930's, was the first home the League featured when they began their Showhouse fundraisers in 1983. "We are very pleased to 'come home' to this beautiful Georgian-style estate", said co-chairs Dawn Drayton and Valerie Mines. "We are so excited at the prospect of seeing this home once again transformed and raising funds for our projects in support of women and children in our community."

The Junior League of Toronto has a stellar reputation in attracting key Canadian designers to showcase their work and this time the McLean House will be brought into the 21st century while maintaining the home's original integrity.

The League's focus is to provide support for women, children and families and this year proceeds from the Showhouse will go to St. Alban's Boys' and Girls' Club, the Women & Babies Program at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, and other Junior League of Toronto projects.

Visitors to the home will experience the latest trends in décor, as well as, "Talks in the Tent", lunch in the café and shopping in the boutique. For tickets visit www.jltshowhouse.org or buy at the door for $25. Tickets purchased before March 31st are entitled to a $5.00 discount. Seniors, students and groups of ten or more are $20 at the door. For Group tours book through jltshowhousetours@gmail.com or 416-485-4218 ext 301.
