Join USModernist for a fabulous evening fundraiser under the stars at the famed Kirk and Anne Douglas House designed by architect Donald Wexler. Turn back time for a night of celebration and relaxation at one of the most famous – and beautiful – midcentury homes in Palm Springs! Under the palms, we will shake the martinis and enjoy wonderful architecture, sparkling conversation, and delicious drinks and appetizers - all for a deserving cause. You’ll tour the iconic property and meet architecture fans and preservationists who love what you love. The owners have completely remodeled the kitchen and poured sexy new terrazzo floors in a complex and triumphant renovation you’ll be among the first groups to see! Entertainment by Ron Greenip, musician at the famous Melvyn’s in Palm Springs.
