Normally, you look to this column for sage advice on matters relating to home service businesses. This week however were going to take a bit of an end run on such topics.
Callahan Roach Business Solutions is an ardent supporter of the Joseph Groh Foundation, as you may have noticed from our website. Who are they and what do they do you ask? They are a 501©(3) Texas public charity which provides (among other things) financial assistance to those who are living with a life altering disability AND who have some kind of connection to the construction trades industry. That makes them the only organization that we are aware of dedicated exclusively to providing financial assistance to those individuals in need who have made their living in the HVAC, electrical, plumbing, roofing etc. business.
The foundation was started by one such individual – Joseph Groh. After spending 35 years in the HVAC industry, Joe had a freak bicycle accident on Father’s Day 2008 – and that accident left Joe a quadriplegic. In other words, Joe is completely paralyzed below the shoulders. In 2009 however he started up the foundation to help others in need, and Callahan Roach Business Solutions was an immediate supporter. Since that time, the foundation has helped dozens of individuals in states all over the country purchase such items as handicapped accessible vans, rehabilitation equipment, complete home and bath remodels and more. For more information on this unique organization please visit Josephgrohfoundation.org.
All of this brings us to a unique opportunity for you – when you will kick yourself for if you miss out on it. The foundation has 2 tickets to the Dallas Cowboys-Houston Texans football game on Thursday, September 1 at 8 PM, but these aren’t just any tickets. These tickets are in club level section C108! If you were going to get any closer to the action you would have to suit up!
These seats normally cost $350 each or $700 for the pair, but the foundation will award them to the first caller who contacts them with a bid of $250 or more – for the pair! If interested, please call Joe Groh at 214-998-9749. Shoulder pads not included!
