Company expands Support of The Moyer Foundation by Donating a Percentage of Sales from Roadside Attractions to help Grieving Youth Heal
City of Industry, CA – [March 30, 2012] Bentley Prince Street, Inc., an industry leader in commercial carpet design, quality and sustainability, wants to take customers on a journey across America with its latest product offering, Roadside Attractions. Available in broadloom, carpet tile and area rugs, Roadside Attractions is the Bentley Prince Street version of a summer road trip with a non-directional pattern that emulates sections of a road map and a color line named for real, American landmarks.
This product will also help put children in distress on the road to recovery. A percentage of sales from Roadside Attractions will be donated to The Moyer Foundation, a non-profit organization that created Camp Erin™, the largest nationwide network of free bereavement camps for children and teens ages 6-17 who have experienced the death of someone close to them.
“Roadside Attractions is truly a product you can feel good about specifying; it’s fresh, fun, modern and philanthropic,” says Anthony Minite, president of Bentley Prince Street. “As a father of four, I am incredibly moved by The Moyer Foundation and its efforts to support children in distress. I’d like Camp Erin to become an American Landmark of its own.”
Roadside Attractions shares a direct heritage with Bentley Prince Street’s bestselling products, Satellite City™and Suburban Fringe™. All three products coordinate beautifully with subtle patterning, and like Roadside Attractions, pay homage to classic America. Bustling satellite cities and shopping districts throughout the country inspire Satellite City and Suburban Fringe. Roadside Attractions offers a refreshing color line and when specified with less contrasting colors, has a dissolved pattern appearance for more conservative spaces. Roadside Attractions will add the right amount of visual interest to the following environments: corporate, government, healthcare, higher education, hospitality and retail.
“Roadside Attractions is a really fun product that evokes American optimism with a combination of highly graphic and more subtle designs,” says Valerie Ottaviano, Vice President of Product Design.
The Moyer Foundation was founded in 2000 by World Series champion pitcher, Jamie Moyer, and his wife Karen. It’s a public, non-profit organization with the mission of helping children in distress. Camp Erin is a weekend-long experience filled with traditional, fun, camp activities combined with grief education and emotional support — facilitated by grief professionals and trained volunteers in nearly 40 locations across the country.
