The BFAB program builds hi-tech “smart homes” for service members returning from war who have been catastrophically injured.
Carpet One Floor & Home, and its manufacturing partner Mohawk, have committed to providing flooring materials and installation for 46 of these “smart homes.” Each store’s customers are invited to share information about the program with others, and make a personal contribution to the store site.
In recognition of that support, members of the Fire Department of New York (FDNY) - acting on their own initiative as ambassadors for the foundation - presented Kevin and Mary Gail with a specially designed shadowbox containing hallowed 9/11 steel from Ground Zero.
“We are truly humbled and honored that the Tunnel to Towers Foundation and members of FDNY - who were actually at Ground Zero on 9/11 and during its aftermath - traveled all the way from their home base to visit us and express their gratitude to us,” says Kevin. “In fact, we are the ones who are thankful to them for their dedication and service. That is why we are so thrilled to be a part of this impactful program that helps military heroes who have suffered the most devastating injuries.”
OC FAIR & EVENT CENTER in Costa Mesa: October 15 through November 29, 2015
KURIOS – Cabinet of Curiosities™ premiered to the world in Montréal in April 2014 and is Cirque du Soleil’s 35th production. Since its debut, the critics have been raving: “KURIOS is Cirque du Soleil’s strongest act in years…one of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen on a stage” (Toronto Star) and “KURIOS is the best Cirque du Soleil show in a long time.” (San Francisco Chronicle).
Written and directed by Michel Laprise, KURIOS – Cabinet of Curiosities™ is a tale in which time comes to a complete stop, transporting the audience inside a fantasy world where everything is possible. In this realm set in the latter half of the nineteenth century, reality is quite relative indeed as our perception of it is utterly transformed. The name of the show refers to the humble and strange characters that inhabit the Seeker’s Cabinet of Curiosities.
In an alternate yet familiar past, in a place where wonders abound for those who trust their imagination, a Seeker discovers that in order to glimpse the marvels that lie just below the surface, we must first learn to close our eyes. In his larger-than-life curio cabinet, the Seeker is convinced that there exists a hidden, invisible world – a place where the craziest ideas and the grandest dreams lie waiting. A collection of otherworldly characters suddenly steps into his makeshift mechanical world. When the outlandish, benevolent characters turn his world upside down with a touch of poetry and humor in an attempt to ignite the Seeker’s imagination, his curios jump to life one by one before his very eyes.
