If we've ever had a milestone month, this is it. September's issue is number 24 - marking two full years since our first issue in October of 2017. It's been a wild ride, and like I've said on many occasions, a leap of faith my publisher Susan, and I have loved. To mark the occasion, we're inviting everyone to our 2nd Annual Design Challenge and anniversary celebration on September 12th at Pioneer Place in West Fargo. This is an event to thank our readers, celebrate our team, and showcase the talents of some of Fargo-Moorhead's most elite designers. If you need more incentive to attend, we'll also be serving food by Chef's Table and desserts by Nichole's Fine Pastry.
This year, there will be 10 designers on three teams, going head-to-head, with only 24 hours to complete their best tablescape/dining design and most creative welcome basket. Everyone will be invited to view the three apartments, place their vote, and head upstairs to help us celebrate our first two years. For a big finale, we'll announce a winner, and all of the decor, dining sets, and welcome baskets will be donated to Down Home, a local non-profit which works tirelessly to help transition homeless families into permanent housing.
Let me finish with something Monte Jones expressed while discussing his Garden Party fundraiser this past month: "If you're in a position to do something that you love, and you're able to do that for another purpose, you should do it." Agreed.
