United Auxiliaries to Lancaster General Hospital is thrilled to announce their $500,000 pledge to The Child Life Program in Pediatrics at Lancaster General Hospital as their newest fundraising initiative.

A Child Life Program provides specialists who are trained to help children cope with the stress and uncertainty of their life changing events and will focus on the psychosocial and developmental needs of children by collaborating with families and other health care providers.

Children today confront a wide variety of stressful and potentially traumatic events that can overwhelm their natural ability to cope and heal. Experiences related to health care and hospitalization can lead to feelings of fear, confusion, loss of control and isolation that can inhibit their natural development and have negative effects on their physical and emotional health.

The Designer Show House at Pineapple Manor, held November 2-12 at various hours, will benefit The Child Life Program in Pediatrics, and will be sponsored by Susquehanna Style, Lamar Advertising and Benchmark Construction to date.

Pineapple Manor, originally named The Harnish House, is a private residence located at 417 Manor Avenue in Millersville, constructed in 1885 for John S. Landis and S. Elma Landis. In 2016, Keely Childers Heany, editor of Susquehanna Style magazine, and her husband, purchased the residence and began their dream of reviving the landmark into a bed and breakfast.

Sponsored by Susquehanna Style, Lamar Advertising and Benchmark Construction, to date, this special Designer Show House event will be held over two long weekends, with tours of each room at Pineapple Manor that will each feature a different designer from around the Lancaster County area. Designers include AK Interiors, Sandra Steiner Houck, David Lyall, Henrietta Heisler, JKS & Company, Interiors Home, Martins Appliances and Furnishings, and more. Other vendors include Matilda Jane, Special Occasions, Mieses Candies, and Stella and Dot. Throughout the days of the Show House event there will be various events such as wine and chef tastings, a fashion show, and musical entertainment.

This Show House will be held two weekends in November. Dates include November 2-5 and 9-12, with Thursday and Friday from 11 a.m.-7 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Tickets cost $20 per person and proceeds benefit the Child Life Program.
