This year marks the second one that KBS participated in the Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters (CHKD) Annual Holly Festival of Trees Gala with Live & Silent Auctions by donating a “Tool Time” themed tree. We would like to thank each and every person who not only donated to our tree, but to everyone who took part in this fundraiser, as it’s for such a great cause. Together we have truly made a difference!
Overall the event was successful, with our very own Lisa Sproat’s gingerbread aircraft carrier being purchased on the first bid at the “Buy it Now” price of $500! This was the highest grossing gingerbread donation of the night! Our “Tool Time” tree, decorated by KBS employees Lisa Sproat, Crystal Ringenberg, and Matt Hemmis, also had about ten bids throughout the night and ended up going for $900! Although this wasn’t the top grossing tree at the fundraiser, KBS was able to support CHKD by bringing in $1,400!
There were many beautiful and unique trees at the festival and KBS is honored to have been a part of this lovely event put on by such a deserving organization. We look forward to donating again next year, and we encourage all of our subcontractors to consider contributing in the future.
KBS thanks our wonderful subcontractors including Color Masters, Tidewater Interior Wall and Ceiling, Inc., Bay Painting, and Quality Building Products for their generous donations to our tree and for great service and products on our jobsites all year long! We also received monetary donations from subcontractors that we used to purchase more decorations for the tree, so thank you so much to everyone who contributed.
