Artisan Group Hosts First Annual Yard Sale, "Counters for a Cause"

January 5, 2012
Artisan Group countertop fabricators across America raised $32,000 at the group’s first national granite yard sale, “Counters For A Cause,” to help Homes for Our Troops build specially-adapted homes for veterans. Homeowners purchased beautiful pieces of stone remnants and slabs at discounted prices and helped a veteran at the same time.

Artisan Group Executive Director Chad Seiders recently presented the check to Marine Corporal Neil Frustaglio, a Homes For Our Troops representative and marine who recently received a home from the organization. “These marines have given their blood, sweat, tears, and in some cases, part of themselves to defend our rights and freedoms in this country,” said Chad Seiders, Artisan Group Executive Director. “It is a privilege to give something back to them.” 

“Homes for Our Troops appreciates the fundraising efforts of the Artisan Group,” said John Gonsalves, President and Founder of Homes For Our Troops. “Because of the support from patriotic companies across the nation, we are able to restore freedom and independence back to our severely injured veterans through the gift of a specially adapted home.”  

Artisan Group members who participated in this Counters For A Cause sale and/or contributed include: Surface Products, Duracite, Block Tops, Front Range Stone, Atlanta Kitchen, Top Master, Solid Tops, Consolidated Kitchens & Fireplaces, Rocky Mountain Stone, Creative Countertops, RockStone Store, US Granite, Trindco, Artistic Counters, Innovative Surfaces and FLOFORM Countertops.
