New York, NY — Silestone by Cosentino recently participated in the “House United” project, led by national TV personality and DIY expert Ty Pennington. As an official sponsor, Silestone provided its natural quartz surfaces for the unique home’s kitchen, bathrooms, living room, study and utility room.
The project was a collaboration between Heroes at Home, Rebuilding Together, Craftsman, NextGen Home built by Champion and Bank of America, who asked Americans across the country and delegates at both the Democratic and Republican National Conventions to work together in a community service program to build a home for one of our country’s deserving military veterans. One half of the home was built during the Republican National Convention in Tampa, FL on Tuesday, August 28 and the other half of the home during the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, NC on Monday, September 3.
Delegates, elected officials and their staffs, convention attendees and media in both locations were invited to literally swing a hammer, nail 2"x4"s and paint walls alongside Pennington during the events. The two halves of the home built during the conventions will now be united in Charlotte in the Belmont neighborhood during the month of October and presented to a deserving veteran family.
“We are proud to partake in the House United project,” says Lorenzo Marquez, v.p. of marketing for Cosentino North America. “It is an initiative we can all stand behind and it is just one way to recognize our incredible military veterans and their families.”
