Deb Ahlstedt opened her newly renovated home at 5005 New Castle Road to the public Aug. 26 for a unique show-home experience that benefited the Lincoln and Greater Nebraska Chapter of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).
Ahlstedt, an allied member of the American Society of Interior Designers, is a professional interior designer with Interiors Joan and Associates.
Interiors Joan and Associates’ “Spotlight on Renovations … Benefiting JDRF” event attracted 200 guests and raised over $2,000 to benefit the local JDRF chapter. For a minimum $10 donation, attendees could tour the renovated home, learn about new trends and get a glimpse of the home’s before-and-after transformation.
Drinks and hors d’ oeuvres on the patio, pop-up shopping around the pool and a special tour of the pool house completed the event. Venue Restaurant & Lounge, Petal Creations, Nebraska Nursery & Color Gardens, Vahallan Wall Coverings, Pattino Shoe Boutique and Rachel’s Boutique co-sponsored the event.
