Taste of Lubbock attendees can enter to win a design consultation by IIDA members including Lane Scott, Whitney Lawshe, Jody Rickwartz and Jory Gattis.

Texas Tech’s International Interior Design Association (IIDA) will host The Taste of Lubbock, a fundraiser benefitting IIDA and the Ronald McDonald House Charities, March 26 at Vintage Township.

The Taste of Lubbock will include a tour of five Vintage Township model homes, live local entertainment and a variety of local restaurants and wineries. Participants can purchase tickets for a chance to win a home design consultation from a team of Texas Tech interior design students.

Kristi Gaines, the IIDA adviser and professor in the College of Human Sciences, said this is the first time for the association to do this fundraiser.

“This event should be extremely fun as well as a great way to get involved and help raise money for IIDA,” Gaines said.

IIDA is a relatively new campus organization comprised of 42 members, which is the largest campus center in the Texas/Oklahoma region, she said.

Ten to 15 percent of proceeds from The Taste of Lubbock will be donated to Ronald McDonald House Charities, an organization designed to create, find and support programs that directly improve the health and well-being of children. The remainder will help IIDA send design students to conferences, bring speakers in for IIDA meetings and create scholarships.
