For 100 kids in the Memphis area, something exciting happened! Ashley Furniture in conjunction with the Memphis Tigers football team, gave away an entire bed set to each child on Sat, April 28. Ashley Furniture and the Memphis Tigers hosted a "Hope to Dream" event at the Billy J Murphy Athletic Complex in Memphis, Tenn., located on the University of Memphis Campus.
Each bed set includes a twin mattress set, pillow, sheets and comforter. These children were selected through Ashley Furniture's Hope to Dream program and local community partners in Memphis.
Hope to Dream is an initiative started by AHS to provide children in the community who do not have a bed to call their own – their very own bed. A portion of all mattress sales at Ashley goes toward supporting the Hope to Dream program. Chad Spencer, President of the Dufresne Spencer Group, the largest licensee of the Ashley store, is passionate about this program and is excited to bring this event back to Memphis for the 4th consecutive year.
"We can have the greatest product at the best price, but if we don’t serve the guest and give back to the community that supports us, we are spiritually bankrupt as a company. That’s why events like this and Hope to Dream are so important to us at Ashley," says Spencer.
The event also included exciting kid’s activities, fun football drills, facility tour, photo booth, food and gift bags for each of the children provided by Ashley Furniture and the Memphis Tigers.
