Helps raise funds for Southampton Fresh Air Home

Crescendo Designs recently helped raise thousands of dollars for the Southampton Fresh Air Home for physically challenged children at their annual Decorators-Designers-Dealers Sale and Auction Benefit Gala.

One of the highlights of Southampton’s summer season, the star-studded event attracts over 500 guests and raises about 40 percent of the operating budget for the non-profit organization, which provides a unique and caring residential camping experience for special needs children – and a much-needed respite for the families who care for them.

“I can’t think of a more worthwhile organization – or a more fantastic Southampton event – for Crescendo Designs to participate in than this benefit for the Fresh Air Home. For more than 100 years, they’ve made summers special for countless deserving kids and their families,” says Mike Brody, Vice President of Crescendo Designs.

Crescendo not only contributed an Outdoor Movie Night to the Gala’s Silent Auction, we also donated flat screen TV rentals to the event itself so that guests could get a good look at all Auction items up for bid, watch the Fresh Air Home’s video as well as the Kentucky Derby.
