Daltile sponsors the Rimington Trophy Award

October 11, 2012
DALLAS, TX -- For the second year, Daltile will sponsor the Rimington trophy, an award that honors the nation's most outstanding collegiate football center. The Rimington Trophy is awarded annually by the Boomer Esiason Foundation, which works to raise money, heighten education and awareness of cystic fibrosis and to provide a better quality of life for those affected by the disease.

"We are thrilled to once again sponsor the Rimington Trophy," said John C. Turner, Jr., President of Dal-Tile Corporation." As a company, we strive to enrich the lives of others and give back to our communities, and serving as advocates for the ongoing battle against cystic fibrosis is just one example of how we're able to make a difference."

Since its inception, the Rimington Trophy has raised nearly $3 million for the fight against cystic fibrosis -- with 100% of the proceeds donated to the cause.   

Daltile's sponsorship of the Rimington Trophy has also proven to build and enhance customer relationships through attendance at Rimington sponsored events. These events afford Dal-Tile the opportunity to create memorable points of engagement for customers that will continue to foster the company's business for years to come. Additionally, the award is accredited with the National College Football Awards Association and is televised on ESPN, thus exposing the Daltile brand to a larger audience.
