Pittsburgh, PA, June 11, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- DirectBuy of Pittsburgh
donated a $10,000 Decora kitchen in a live auction to help raise funds for Hospice of Western Pennsylvania.
Hospice provides a range of health and comfort care services to individuals facing the end of life. Their goal is to help make the terminally ill feel comfortable and supported by those caring for them.
Co-Owners of the three DirectBuy showrooms in Pittsburgh, brothers Doug and Paul Barrante are extremely thankful for the care and assistance their mother, grandmother, and aunt received through Hospice. Although the women lost their individual battles with cancer, Hospice facilitated a comfort level in the last months that greatly improved the quality of their lives.
“We donated the kitchen because we knew that with so many people attending the fundraiser that there would have to be several people in the market for a new kitchen,” said Doug Barrante. “Our kitchen donation not only raised a significant amount of money for Hospice, but it also allowed a family the fantastic opportunity to donate a significant amount of money and get a wonderful new kitchen.”
The Decora kitchen raised more money than any other auction item. The family that purchased the kitchen was able to get their dream kitchen for much less than if they had purchased it from a retailer. “It was great to be able to support such a wonderful organization like Family Hospice while gaining a much needed kitchen upgrade,” said Chris Dell. “My wife and I were in the market for a new kitchen. This opportunity enabled us to be much more creative with our options. Both of us have great respect for the generosity of DirectBuy for their support of Family Hospice as a non-profit organization.”
