April 8, 2016 – At the tail-end of the 3rd annual Taste of Austin event, ProSales Editor-in-Chief, Craig Webb, presented Factory Builder Stores with the 2015 ProSales Excellence Award for Showroom Design. Along with national recognition, this prestigious award included a $500 donation to a charity of Factory Builder Stores’ choosing. Austin Division President, Paul Marshall, selected Miracle League at Town and Country to receive the donation.
“We chose the Miracle League at Town and Country for our donation because of the great work they do in helping the physically and mentally challenged kids of Central Texas. ” said Marshall.
Miracle League is a baseball program for special needs children and adolescents who are unable to play in traditional little leagues. “They provide them the opportunity to play baseball like every other child has growing up.” stated Marshall. Partnered with a “buddy”, players are given protection and guidance while maintaining independence on the field.
Marshall and his wife, along with their three children, are all actively involved in the program. “What makes this even more special is seeing the high school kids donate their weekend afternoons to stand by these kids at bat and in the field, and the way it touches their lives as well.” Marshall continues.
The donation was accepted by Miracle League at Town and Country Founder and Director, Steve Brown. “As a nonprofit organization, donations like this are what keep us going.” Said Brown.
Miracle League is always in need of volunteers and welcomes newcomers to stop by. “If you make it out to a game, bring your sunglasses to hide your tears.” advised Brown. “What happens out on the field between players and their buddies is really moving.”
