Inspired by Doreen Koenig’s lifetime of charitable work, Kevin Split, General Manager at the City Furniture Naples showroom, was moved to give back to his community by joining the director’s board of Salt Warriors, a non-profit organization focused on giving back to local charities.
As a Salt Warriors board member, Kevin’s key mission was to find event sponsors—and he didn’t have to search far. Knowing City Furniture’s commitment to help local communities, it was only natural to join the two forces and bring City Furniture on as the first major sponsor.
The inaugural event was the BBQ and Brews, which was held with the goal of raising money for four local families whose children were diagnosed with cancer. Featuring a pig roast, craft beers, and entertainment, City Furniture helped sponsor the successful event, which raised over $5,000 that was shared between the four families.
“For City Furniture to be the first major company to support Salt Warriors was such a big, huge accomplishment,” said Kevin. “This was an amazing opportunity for us as an organization to help out with local families.”
Salt Warriors was originally established in 2013 as a fun run company. Switching gears one year later when President Todd Richards learned that his son would be born with spina bifida, the group now focuses on raising money for small charities
