Tuesday, May 24th, 2011

This past Wednesday Abt held an in-store Builder’s Gala which brought in over 175 builders, architects, designers, and landscapers to see Abt and get information from all the vendors on what we have to offer. Vendors from each vignette were there, as well as other vendors from our store.

All builders got a one page questionnaire, along with a goodie bag.  By filling out the questionnaire and asking these questions to the vendors, they were awarded raffle tickets for a ton of great things at Abt, including a KitchenAid stand mixer, Scotsman icemaker, pots and pans sets by Dacor and Bluestar, wine coolers by GE and Electrolux, a Viking gas range, Miele vacuum, baking stone, hand mixer, 2 GE microwaves, lunch/ cooking event for Miele and SubZero/Wolf, faucets, Bosch and Jenn-Air dishwashers, and a Thermador steam oven.

To top off this fantastic event, drinks and hors d’oeuvres were provided by Jolane’s.

Thank to everyone that participated!
