YWCA Clinic Makeover Celebration at Carpets and Floors, Inc.
This event has already passed
Carpets and Floors, Inc. invites you to join us on Thursday, March 24, 6pm-7:30pm for a reception celebrating the makeover of the YWCA Victims of Family Violence Clinic. All are welcome! National celebrity designer and spokesperson for Design for a Difference, Mark Brunetz, and Board Chair of the YWCA, Krista Hanni, will speak.
In February 2016, a range of local businesses joined the Lighthouse District’s own Carpets & Floors, Inc. in supporting the YWCA Victims of Family Violence Clinic, a non-profit organization that offers legal, social, and personal counseling as well as shelter for women and children trying to escape from abusive family situations. Several thousand dollars in goods and services were donated to execute the design makeover for the YWCA lobby.
Led by Monterey designer Michelle Pheasant Angelo of Michelle Pheasant Designs, a complete transformation of the lobby took place over two weekends. The makeover included redoing lighting, painting, putting down carpet, replacing old tattered furniture with new furniture, providing artwork, and creating a children’s play center.
The YWCA’s Victims of Family Violence program helps women and their children to walk away from abuse and develop a new life. One of the great needs of these women is to gain a sense of dignity and empowerment. The goal of the clinic makeover was to convey the feeling the moment you walk through the door that this is a refuge where you will be treated with respect.
Stepping up to join Carpets & Floors, Inc. and Michelle Pheasant Designs in fulfilling the makeover were local businesses Michael Friday- Handcrafted Finishes (paint and painters), Sal Hernandez (carpet installation), Scott Sloop, (ceiling light installation), Loyd Busby (lamps), Global Custom Frames (framing materials, labor, and installation), TomKat (fabric protection services), Tracey Adams (artwork), and Legacy Furniture (furniture).
