Junior League of Buffalo Show House

The Buffalo News and the Junior League of Buffalo announce that the Bayliss-Oshei Residence has been selected as the site of the 2011 Decorators’ Show House.  Located at 360 Depew Avenue in Buffalo’s Central Park community, the home sits directly across from Burke’s Green on land that was originally the Lewis J. Bennett Estate.

 Area decorators will be invited to a “Bidding Day” at the home on Friday, November 19th, where they can begin the process of submitting design proposals for rooms and spaces.  Decorators interested in participating may contact Junior League Headquarters at 884.8865.

 The Bayliss-Oshei Residence will be open for public viewing from April 30 through May 22, 2011.  Advance tickets are $15 and will be available in late November through the Junior League.  A $5 Sneak Peek of the undecorated home will take place on February 5-6, 2011. More information on Show House will made available on the League’s website at www.jlbuffalo.org.

The Bayliss-Oshei Residence will be the 16th Show House sponsored by The News and the Junior League of Buffalo.  Working collaboratively, Show Houses have yielded proceeds totaling $3,233,000.  As a result, 19 cultural and human service organizations have received significant funding for high impact programs benefiting Buffalo and Erie County.

Frank Lloyd Wright’s Darwin Martin Complex was chosen as the recipient of 2009 Show House proceeds totaling $515,000 for development of the Junior League of Buffalo/Buffalo News Learning Center.
