Pacita Wilson, owner of Pineapple Park and one of the most respected interior designers in the area, was selected to handle the interior design for Children’s Charities Designing for a Difference Clarity Farm Showcase Home.
Held April 19-23, 2017, all proceeds from the tour will benefit Children’s Charities effort to build an all-inclusive play park project in Milton, which will provide a playground for all abilities and disabilities.
