Laticrete offered its MVP clients the opportunity to exchange Adventure Travel Points earned as members of the Laticrete MVP program in exchange for raffle tickets to raise funds to fight MS. Shannon Brothers Tile exchanged a remarkable 240,000 Adventure Travel points and purchased over 240 raffle tickets.
