AFR Gives Back Through EPTA

AFR is proud to support event industry charity, Event Pros Take Action.  Working with EPTA, we are changing lives for Hurricane Katrina victims who are still struggling to get back into their homes ten years later. AFR will provide furnishings to finish two more homes during EPTA’s 5th annual event in New Orleans this summer.

EPTA is a non-profit organization that aids communities suffering from environmental catastrophe. In its fifth year, event professionals from across the USA come together each summer to paint, spackle and rebuild homes for NOLA residents. In addition, each year EPTA underwrites the costs of two homes ($25,000 each) to do more than just provide a “shell of a home” for these families.  Led by Event Industry professionals, EPTA designs home interiors for two clients in the months leading up to the annual mission. On site, they install all home furnishings (bed sets, coffee tables, sofas, dining room sets which have been donated), curtains, pillows, TV’s, washing machines, accessories and much more.  The final day, EPTA hosts an “Extreme Makeover” style Welcome Home party complete with ribbon cutting for our clients.
