Founded in 1907, St. Margaret’s Hospital Guild is a volunteer organization committed to raising funds for the services and programs of Eskenazi Health Services whose mission is to advocate, care, teach, and serve, with special emphasis on the vulnerable populations of Marion County.
Each year Guild members, designers, landscape architects, financial sponsors, and donors of in-kind services volunteer their time, talents, goods, and monies to raise funds to help others. Typically, the homeowners move into temporary housing while their home is being redecorated. Rent as well as moving and storage costs are not homeowners expenses. At the beginning of February, the designers start to work in the house. The landscapers begin their outdoor work a bit later. By late April the Show House is ready for visitors. Over the years, the proceeds from the Show House & Gardens have funded many programs and projects for Eskenazi Health.
St. Margaret’s Hospital Guild is proud to announce their 56th Annual Show House – the boyhood home of Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. located at 4401 North Illinois Street in the Butler-Tarkington area of Indianapolis. This remarkable home of historical significance presents new opportunities for future connections within our community. The City of Indianapolis has declared 2017 to be “The Year of Vonnegut,” and the guild is thrilled to be a part of this celebration!
