    KDHamptons Design: The 2nd Annual Holiday House Hamptons Presented by HC&G to Benefit The Breast Cancer Research Foundation

    The 2nd annual Holiday House Hamptons opened its doors on Saturday, June 28th for its Opening Night White Gala. The showhouse will be open to the public daily through Sunday, August 10, 2014. Proceeds from the event will benefit The Breast Cancer Foundation®. The showhouse will be featured in the August 1st issue of HC&G magazine.

    Holiday House was founded in 2008 by Iris Dankner to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer through the interior design industry. Having survived the disease through early detection, Iris has made it her mission to support breast cancer research and help women who are facing the same fight. In 2008, Iris combined her passion for design and her efforts to help others by creating Holiday House, the first showhouse in New York City to benefit a breast cancer organization. Each year since, Holiday House has recruited top interior designers from across the country to transform the historic Academy Mansion on the Upper East Side, establishing itself as a premier designer showhouse in Manhattan.
