Local Builder Constructs Pavilion Inside Cobb Galleria Centre for Charity Wine Tasting Event Portion of Georgia’s Largest Home Improvement Show
Award-winning Southern custom construction and home remodeling firm, Highlight Homes is proud and honored to take part in this year’s Spring Atlanta Home Show at the Cobb Galleria Centre on March 23 through 25. For 34 years, the Atlanta Home Show has appeared twice annually – presenting homeowners with a one-stop shopping experience and the opportunity to meet face-to-face with hundreds of companies offering the latest home remodeling products and services.
Rather than appear as an exhibitor, Highlight Homes wished to take on a more integral role in the 2012 Atlanta Home Show. When Highlight Homes’ Principal, Tony Pourhassan learned about the Wine & Design Experience and the charity it benefits, he didn’t hesitate to volunteer his company’s skills, supplies, and time to this worthy cause. Housed inside a special pavilion constructed by Tony and the Highlight Homes’ team, a charity wine tasting event benefitting Hope Atlanta Programs of Traveler’s Aid will take place during the course of the Atlanta Home Show. For a $5 donation, guests will be able to sample a number of fine wines from many winegrowing regions around the world while helping an organization dedicated to the prevention and eradication of homelessness. The Wine & Design Experience can be found within the “Southern Style – Spotlight Savannah” special feature exhibit located at Booth # 147 and is sponsored by Buckhead Pizza Co.
“We’re very excited that Tony is doing this for us,” explains Show Director Michael Schoppenhorst. “He came highly recommended, and everything I’ve seen from him is outstanding. Hope Atlanta is such an important cause – particularly here in a city where the average age of a homeless person is eight-years-old. Tony’s pavilion and the visitors of the Wine & Design Experience will help us raise money while sharing a space that shows off some incredible design work over the course of the three-day show.”
In addition to over 350 companies represented – spotlighting everything from kitchen appliances and flooring for the interior of the home to landscaping, roofing and windows for the exterior of the home – the Atlanta Home Show 2012 will also feature exciting and educational sessions with HGTV’s Kitchen Cousins on the Home Show Stage, an appearance by HGTV’s Carter Oosterhouse, the See-Through House Exhibit, the Home for All Ages Exhibit, and much more. There will be new product launches and great home design ideas, as well.
