AAS RESTORATION & ROOFING RAISES OVER $12,000 FOR CHILDREN’S MERCY BURN UNIT
Nov. 14, 2018 – AAS Restoration & Roofing, a member company of DKI, is proud to present the burn unit of Children’s Mercy Hospital with over $12,000 raised from their most recent Texas Hold ’em Tournament on Friday, November 2, 2018.
“Our team believes in the importance of giving back to our community, and Children’s Mercy Hospital’s burn unit is just one charity that we are happy to support,” said Stephen Storts, president of AAS. “Putting your world back together isn’t just a tagline for AAS; it’s an affirmation of our mindset of giving back to the community while setting the restoration industry’s standard in customer service and quality performance.”
AAS has been holding Texas Hold ’em Tournaments since 2007 as an annual fundraising event for Children’s Mercy’s burn unit.
AAS chose the burn unit as the recipient of their fundraising events because, through their restoration work, they are aware of how destructive a fire is to a home or business and could only imagine what it would be like to have a child suffer the effects of being burned.
This year’s event was the most successful function to date. Thanks to the efforts of AAS employees, the event’s sponsors and the donations from the tournament’s participants, AAS has collected more than $82,000, along with socks, underwear, books and toys for Children’s Mercy over the last 11 years.
AAS will be presenting the most recent donation to the burn unit in the coming weeks, before the holidays.
“We are so very grateful to AAS Restoration & Roofing and everyone who has attended and participated in the annual Texas Hold ’em Charity Poker Tournament over the last 11 years to benefit our burn unit,” said Erica Logan, manager of philanthropic community engagement and events for Children’s Mercy. “Thank you for being part of our Children’s Mercy family through this heartfelt donation. Every gift allows us to fulfill our 120-year mission of providing the best care possible to all children who come through our doors.”
In 2017, Children’s Mercy honored AAS by placing a name plaque outside the door of one of the burn unit rooms, noting their appreciation of AAS’ sponsorship of their children.
