American Family, furniture retailers honor community leaders with a special room
You work hard to support the people and the community you love. Wouldn't it be nice to have a special place in your home where your family can gather and relax?
With this guiding thought, American Family Insurance, in partnership with several national furniture retailers, sponsored the Dream Room Giveaway in seven cities: Chicago, Denver, Las Vegas, Milwaukee, Phoenix, Salt Lake City and Tucson.
Families were encouraged to nominate themselves via an online entry form. Additionally, nominations were encouraged from local community organizations and friends.
Community involvement was a primary consideration in choosing the 21 winners, who each received a $5,000 gift card and design consultation to create a dream room of their choice.
The three winning families of each city were selected by a team of judges based upon a number of criteria, one being involvement in the community.
In-store workshops on home safety and decorating - sponsored by American Family, IKEA, American Furniture Warehouse and R.C. Wiley - were also part of the Dream Room Giveaway program.
