          About This Event

          Summary

          This year’s St. Margaret’s Hospital Guild Decorators’ Show House and Gardens, which starts later this week will once again allow the public to tour a classic Meridian Street home with proceeds benefiting Wishard-Eskenazi Health. This year’s residence is located at 3050 North Meridian Street at the historic Schnull-Rauch House, just north of The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis.

          The annual event runs from April 27 to May 12 (closed Mondays). Daily tours are open to the public from 11a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. Tickets can be purchased at the door or online at www.showhouseindy.org for $20 ($18 for guests 65 and older). Pre-sale tickets can be purchased at select Marsh supermarkets for $18 through April 26. Special group rates are also available. In addition to the daily tours, there are many special events to enjoy. Free parking is available in The Children’s Museum parking garage and designated surface lots.

          Interior designers and landscapers have been hard at work since February restoring and renovating the historic house. The Schnull-Rauch House was completed in April 1904 by Gustav and Matilda Mayer Schnull.  Renowned architect and Gustav’s brother-in-law, Bernard Vonnegut, designed the home in the Romanesque style with medieval features, such as the large round tower and crenellated porch. 

          In 1937, Gertrude Schnull-Rauch and her husband John G. Rauch Sr. purchased the home from her father’s estate. In 1979, the home was listed on the National Register of Historic Places and donated to the Junior League of Indianapolis for use as its headquarters and offices for non-profit organizations. In 2008, the Junior League sold the house and the property to The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis.

          For more than 100 years the St. Margaret's Hospital Guild has been a key partner in carrying out Wishard’s mission. From its beginning in 1907, the guild has raised nearly $11 million to support the work of Wishard. This generous philanthropic support has benefited Wishard patients directly through programs and services. The dedicated and compassionate members of the guild work tirelessly and enthusiastically through the Decorators’ Show House and many other initiatives for the benefit of Wishard’s patients and its mission.

          “Many things have been made possible at Wishard solely because of the generosity and commitment of St. Margaret’s and their extraordinary show house successes,” said Dr. Lisa Harris, CEO and medical director at Wishard-Eskenazi Health. “There is really no area of Wishard that St. Margaret’s hasn’t touched. We are forever grateful to the women of St. Margaret’s and those who support them for their determination, their advocacy, their enduring friendship, and their devotion to Wishard.”

          St. Margaret’s Hospital Guild has distributed funds to numerous areas of Wishard, including the Richard M. Fairbanks Burn Center, Women’s and Children’s Services and the Newborn Intensive Care Unit. The guild has also been a key supporter and a strong voice for the construction of the new Sidney & Lois Eskenazi Hospital and Eskenazi Health campus. The new facility will replace Wishard’s aging campus and is scheduled to be completed later this year.

          “We are extremely grateful to St. Margaret’s Hospital Guild and the commitment they have shown to our community,” said Ernest Vargo II, CFRE, president and CEO of the Eskenazi Health Foundation. “Through the St. Margaret’s Hospital Guild Decorators’ Show House and Gardens and other efforts, the guild has been one of Wishard-Eskenazi Health’s most steadfast supporters. We are deeply appreciative of their support and honored to once again be part of this wonderful annual event.”

          This year’s show house marks the 52nd time the guild has hosted the event, which will feature over 50 area designers and landscapers using their talent and creativity to transform the historic Schnull-Rauch House. For additional information, please visit www.showhouseindy.org.
