Dreams Happen

Dreams Happen is a biennial fundraising event benefiting Rebuilding Together Peninsula (RTP) and hosted by Stanford Shopping Center. The event teams local architects and builders in the construction of unique and elaborately designed life-size children’s playhouses. The playhouses are then auctioned at the Dreams Happen Gala -- all under the stars at Stanford Shopping Center. One hundred percent of the proceeds raised through the auction of the playhouses benefits Rebuilding Together Peninsula.  Since its inception in 1993, Dreams Happen has raised more than 2 million dollars for Rebuilding Together Peninsula.

Dwell has teamed up this year with architect Jonathan Davis of pieceHomes ® and builder Will Capper of Icon Fine Homes to build our very own Dwell playhouse! Come and see Dwell's Playhouse Little "e" on display at the Stanford Shopping Center now through June 12, 2009. It is a three dimensional spatial experience for children (and fun loving adults) and gives the opportunity to discover space and form with places to climb through, over, within, and under.
