More than 300 visitors poked through Todd House, the 34th Annual Oak Park-River Forest Infant Welfare Society ASID Showcase House, during the two day Second Annual Sneak A Peek Empty House Tour July 23 and 24. The event was sponsored by Oak Park River Forest Infant Welfare Society Circle 41.
The Sneak gave the public an early look at the 10,000-square-foot Tudor Revival at 620 N. Euclid Ave., which 20 interior designers will transform and open to the public from Sept. 11 through Oct. 2. The home was designed in 1904 by architect E.E. Roberts for the family of Chicago industrialist Henry C. Clay.
The theme "Celebrating a Festival of Design With Purpose'' will focus on the showcase house as the first of a number of year-long events that will honor the 90th anniversary of the founding of the Oak Park-River Forest Infant Welfare Society.
Showcase tickets are $20 to Sept. 1; $25 thereafter. Proceeds benefit the Infant Welfare Society Clinic, 320 Lake St., which provides medical, dental and social services to children birth through 20 years of age from low income families who cannot afford private medical care.
