2017 Natural Disaster Charity Brew-BQ
On November 14th, 15th and 16th of 2017, we hosted a charity event to help those displaced by natural disasters. We picked out 3 charities including a Florida food bank, a volunteer group helping hurricanes victims and a wildfire relief fund in California. Our customers were encouraged to donate to any of the three charities and Trends in Tile along with a variety of our vendors matched the funds by 200%.
We are proud to have helped raise over $5500 for those with needs far greater than our own.
