ABW is proud to support the Orange Wednesday Foundation, a local charity that aims to promote better awareness and support for mental health.
According to the National Alliance for Mental Illness, 1 in 5 people in the US will be affected by some form of mental illness. The Orange Wednesday Foundation raises money for scholarships for students pursuing the arts and provide grants to support programs for families who have been affected by mental illness. The foundation was created to honor the memory of Noah Marks, nephew of our very own Bruce Yaffe.
The Orange Wednesday Foundation is near and dear to the ABW family, and on August 17, our staff wore orange to show solidarity. The picture above illustrates how our Arlington showroom staff’s creativity. The guys forgot to wear orange, so the manager Chris Hemmingsen made them all orange suspenders!
