John Thomas Furniture Partners with Conservation Group
According to Bryan Sprinkles, John Thomas Furniture’s sales and marketing manager, the division’s Coastal Classics Collection afforded the company a unique opportunity to support a worthy cause.
The collection, a popular part of the company’s Select program, was introduced in 2012 and enables consumers to have coastal inspired artwork printed on their dining tables through a unique process incorporated into the product’s finishing process.
Prior to the October High Point Market, the company began talks with the CCA on how the sales of their newest introduction, a sea turtle table, might benefit the organization’s goals, he said.
“It just made sense,” said Sprinkles. “The Coastal Classics Collection is all about the beauty of the sea, the experience, and nature. The new sea turtle table is the purest expression of that experience.”
The company will donate for auction The Coastal Classic 1st edition sea turtle table produced and exhibited during market, at the association’s annual fundraiser tonight in High Point, N.C. It also has promised to donate a portion of each table’s sales to the association’s efforts.
According to David Sneed, executive director of the Coastal Conservation Association North Carolina, sea turtles are a federally-protected, endangered species and the CCA strongly supports its protection. The group’s advocacy work is directed at the removal of destructive gear from managed waters to stop the needless killing of sea turtles and other coasts species.
Tickets are still available for tonight’s fundraiser at the High Point Country Club. The price is $70 and they can be purchased by calling 336-906-5749 or 919-781-3474.
