Independent Carpet One Hosts Golf Tournament in aid of Wounded Veterans
Independent Carpet One Floor & Home in Westland, Michigan recently hosted the Carl & Fran Francavilla Charity Golf Outing to benefit the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers’ Building for America’s Bravest program.
Carpet One Floor & Home members have been involved with this program since 2014, and have participated in the building of over 39 homes, with a goal of finishing 50 by the end of 2018. Carpet One Floor & Home stores across the US have provided all the flooring installation, and the materials have all been donated by Mohawk Industries.
The event, which took place on August 17th, consisted of over 30 sponsors and 116 golfers, and raised over $23,000. Through their efforts, Independent Carpet One has raised and donated over $65,000 to the foundation and store owner Catherine Buchanan, and a number of her fellow Carpet One Floor & Home members, have taken part in the Tunnel to Towers 5K in New York City every September - following the actual steps that Stephen took from the Brooklyn battery tunnel to the towers.
