Thank you for your support!

The 3rd Annual ReStore Spaces was a great success thanks to many individuals and organizations! The Design Teams did a terrific job recreating items to fit their room vignettes. Over 150 guests attend and supported the teams with their votes at the event and many more with their votes online.

  • The Key Designers – Bayshore High School Key Club sponsored by the Cortez Kiwanis Club and led by instructor, Liz Altenbernde, won the People’s Choice Award by receiving the most votes by guests at the event on Thursday night and raised $130 online.
  • The Home Team of Rebecca Compton and Laurie Beppler and friends cleaned up on the awards winning the Community Choice Award by receiving the most votes online raising $1,210, in addition to the Judges Choice Award and the Best Pallet Creation! 
  • The Key Koncepts Team led by Beth Bick and associates of Key One Realty created a cozy home office and finished second in the online votes raising $240. 
  • Bishop Designs charted new territory tackling a bathroom (new to ReStore Spaces) and carried it off turning an old dresser into a beautiful vanity and raised $250 in votes online.
  • Team Cardona made the Florida lifestyles come to life with a sand and shell-filled coffee table made out of pallets.
