Fundraising Event for SSG Ben Eberle
Independent Carpet One Floor & Home in Westland, MI recently hosted a Wine Tasting Fundraiser Event in aid of SSG Ben Eberle and his family.
The money raised went to the building of a smart home for SSG Ben Eberle who suffered the loss of both legs above the knee, and his right hand when he stepped on an IED while on route clearance patrol in Afghanistan. The Building for America's Bravest program are currently wrapping up the building of his smart home in Alpena, MI.
By combining a variety of activities including raffles, custom-designed t-shirts, admissions at the door, selling carpet remnants, prize donations, a 50/50, personal donations, PLUS 12.5% of the proceeds from the wine purchased at the event went back to the fundraiser, the event raised a whopping $20,486.00!
Here are some pictures of the event - it looks like a great time was had by all! Great job Independent Carpet One!
