Tom Daley, Executive Vice President, announced that Breuners Arizona was chosen as the furniture partner for ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition show which airs March 13, 2005. Breuners donated over $60,000 worth of furniture and accessories to the Okvath family’s new home in Gilbert, a 5,300 square foot home. This was an exciting and intense project for everyone involved. The home was completed in 5 days and 9 hours beginning Sunday, February 6th and completed Friday, February 11th.
The Extreme Makeover: Home Edition design producers did their research before coming to Phoenix. Their first stop was Breuners Arizona, on Wednesday, January 26th when Breuners was officially chosen to be the exclusive furniture partner for the show. By Friday morning, Breuners had made a commitment to ABC. Breuners not only agreed to participate, but pledged to do the whole house! Breuners Arizona is only the second furniture retailer in the nation to participate at this level on the show!
Tom Daley, Executive Vice president, General Manager, and Breuners Extreme Team leader said “This was such an extraordinary opportunity for Breuners and all of our partners. It was incredible to witness the strength and perseverance of everyone involved; it was a fantastic experience to see how everyone and everything just came together. It was truly amazing.”
Mary Ann Levitt, President of Breuners Arizona, added “ It’s wonderful to see the morale of our Breuners Extreme Team, as well as all other volunteers involved, who devoted so much extra time, effort, and dedication to this special project. It truly was extreme, and couldn’t have been done successfully without the help of everyone involved. It’s a great feeling to give back to the community and see your whole team beaming with pride.”
On Sunday, March 13th Breuners Arizona will be welcoming the Okvath family, all team members, and partners for a special private party for the viewing of the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition episode. The local ABC affiliate will broadcast live from Breuners Arizona for the pre-party welcoming at 5:00pm and the celebration will continue throughout viewing the nationally televised 2 hour special.
“Most reality TV shows are not known for the quality of their content. Extreme Makeover: Home Edition is different. This is reality TV at its best – showing Americans at their best,” added Daley.
