Richmond, VA (PRWEB) February 28, 2012
Shades of Light was delighted to partner with KDW Home for a successful “Feather The Nest” charity event held February 16th at Shades of Light’s Virginia Beach showroom located at 1828 Laskin Road. The event was an enormous success, attracting over 300 attendees despite the pouring rain and cold temperatures! The event helped to raise thousands of dollars in cash and home supplies for the Hope House Foundation, an organization dedicated to providing support services to individuals with developmental disabilities. Ann Standing (Panache Interiors) and Duff Kliewer (architectural firm Cox Kliewer & Co) helped to organize the "Feather The Nest" event along with Marvin Daniel (KDW Home) and Lynne Seagle (Executive Director of Hope House). Music was provided by More Perfect Jones and food donated by Kelley's, Bella Monte Marketplace, Aldo's, Croc's 19th Street Bistro, and Plaza Azteca.
