About Showcase

2020 Showcase House

22 • 22ND AVENUE

OUR BENEFICIARY

For the past 43 years, the San Francisco Decorator Showcase has raised over $17 million to benefit the San Francisco University High School financial aid program. This event has allowed hundreds of deserving Bay Area students access to a world-class college preparatory education.

UHS is committed to building a community that reflects and embraces the great diversity of the San Francisco Bay Area. Almost one quarter of UHS students receive financial aid. In 2020, the pandemic and resulting economic crisis has created additional need by our families for financial support. The UHS Financial Aid program is providing over $3,600,000 in grants this year, with average grants covering 72% of tuition.

History of Showcase

The story of the San Francisco Decorator Showcase began in 1977, when Nan Rosenblatt, a former San Francisco University High School parent and an accomplished interior designer, and Philip Fernandez, the first president of the school’s Parents Association, conceived the first Showcase to raise funds for University’s financial aid program. In its first year, the Showcase netted $26,000, and today this prestigious event raises over $600,000 annually.

Showcase has taken place at some of the most prestigious addresses in some of the most breathtaking neighborhoods of San Francisco.
