Furniture World News on

Sleep America announced that it has made 150 Valley residents dreams come true this holiday season by concluding their deliveries for the summer give-a-way, Dare to Dream. More than 1,000 Arizona residents dared to dream with Sleep America. On Sunday, July 8th, 2007 Sleep America kicked off its 10th anniversary, with the help of Rich Bauer and The United Phoenix Fire Fighters Association, by giving away 150 beds to underprivileged Arizona residents. The “Dare to Dream” event was focused on giving those in need of a bed a chance to enhance the quality of their lives through products that significantly improve the quality of their sleep. The beds were given away as a part of this unique, innovative event and were donated by Sleep America vendors Kingsdown, Sealy, Simmons, Spring Air and Tempurpedic. Arizona residents went to any one of the 44 Sleep America locations to pick up an entry form or to www.sleepamerica.com to submit an entry form. Sleep America President Debbie Gaby said, “For ten years the community has been here to support our business. On our anniversary we wanted to continue to support our community by making sure those in need of a good night’s rest can now get one with the right bed this holiday season!” Director of Community Programs at the United Phoenix Fire Fighters Association Rich Bauer said, “The United Phoenix Fire Fighters decided to join in on this promotion because it is a wonderful thing to do for the underprivileged in our community. Many times people live paycheck to paycheck and lose sleep about paying rent, let alone worrying about a comfortable bed to sleep in. Sleep America is doing something to help people who otherwise couldn’t even DREAM of affording a new bed.” All entries had to be submitted by September 3rd, 2007. Winners were notified by October 31st. Sleep America Charities is dedicated to improving the Quality of Life for others by providing assistance, support and other resources to deserving Valley charities and organizations in need. Sleep America is the largest mattress retailer in Arizona. In March 2006, Sleep America was acquired by Sleep Country Canada. Founded in 1997 by Debbie Gaby and her husband, Len, Sleep America has over 130 employees and over 44 store locations statewide. The duo blended their experience—his in the mattress supply and furniture industries and hers in interior design and real estate—to launch the venture. This year Sleep America proudly celebrates ten successful years in business. For more information contact Patty Barney at 602.442.6525 or go to www.sleepamerica.com.
