On October 22nd, the Holiday House NYC benefit for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation had its kick off party at the Academy Mansion, where the show house takes place every year. It's a nice gathering for the people and companies from all the architecture and interior decor related industries involved, before they start the hard, exhausting work of putting each of the rooms together.

Holiday House will run from November 21st to December 18th, with their Gala Opening on November 20th, which I already covered and will be posting in the near future with a link to this article as well.
