About Our Honoree:
Suzanne Costa’s creative influences began early in life as the daughter of American jazz artist Eddie Costa. For over 20 years, Suzanne has helped clients create beautiful spaces as principal of Suzanne Costa Interiors. Equally passionate about giving back, for many years she has devoted her time and talents to Ronald McDonald House-Long Island and Ronald McDonald House SWFL. In 2016, her creativity and compassionate spirit inspired Suzanne to volunteer her services and lead a team of 20 respected Southwest Florida designers in a total renovation of the Fort Myers Ronald McDonald House. Four years later with the Fort Myers House expansion underway, she co-chaired Project Design 2020 and, with ten top area designers, furnished and decorated the 4,000 square foot expansion. As Laura Ragain, Executive Director, RMHC SWFL explains “we are beyond grateful for Suzanne’s creativity, support, and passion for our charity. Her valuable advice, leadership, and big heart not only led to two successful large project completions in five years, but significant cost savings as well. We are privileged to acknowledge her leadership as our 2022 Storybook Ball Honoree.”
