This year the Stillman family home was selected by Phoenix Home & Garden as a VIP stop on its annual self-guided tour of spectacular private homes.
While admiring the unique ambience created by acclaimed interior designer HANK ARENS, visitors to the Stillman’s home can also view and bid on fabulous items featured as part of a SILENT AUCTION to benefit the FAMILIAL DYSAUTONOMIA FOUNDATION. (Remote bidding via the event website is welcome and encouraged as well.)
Hosts Stephanie and Brian Stillman are raising funds and awareness to support the Familial Dysautonomia Foundation, in honor of their daughter Pyper, who was born with this ultra-rare genetic disorder which affects the autonomic and sensory nervous systems.
“Life with familial dysautonomia (FD) is filled with daily challenges, and many normal body functions we take for granted are challenging for Pyper. Thanks to the many advances in medical care, children born with FD today have a 50% chance of living to 40, but our goal is to shatter this expectation and give children with FD a 100% chance of living a full life with minimal complications.” --Stephanie and Brian Stillman
