Update: 2019 Palladio Christmas Open House 📃 Speaker & Demonstration Schedule, with Christmas Marketplace listings
Palladio’s 2019 Christmas Open House is benefiting Milla’s House, a Baptist Grief Center. We are thrilled to be partnering with such an important organization that helps our community deal with the reality of living in a broken world. Your donations are accepted for Milla’s House throughout the Christmas Open House event, and certain purchases give you a chance to win an Amy Carlisle painting benefiting Milla’s House. Help us raise funds and awareness for this Memphis treasure!
