2014_Corvette_Kalahari_Interior_at_2013_Detroit_Auto_Show

Gardner-White is the only furniture store in Michigan that gives you all the extras! Now, you’ll get 2 free tickets to the North American International Auto Show with ANY purchase*!

At this year’s North American International Auto Show, you’ll see more than 500 vehicles on display, representing the most innovative designs in the world and experience North America’s largest and most prestigious automotive showcase.

Detroit has hosted an auto show for over a century. For the first several decades of its existence, however, the show’s focus was strictly regional. Then, in 1987, a visionary group of auto dealers within the Detroit Auto Dealers Association (DADA) asked a bold question: Why not make the event truly international in scope? Achieving this objective within only a few years’ time, the North American International Auto Show pursues a vision of continually redefining what it means to be an indispensable international event. To achieve this goal, the NAIAS continually introduces bold new ways to enhance attendees’ experiences and deliver exceptional value to media, industry and the public.

Stop in to any of our 11 Gardner-White Furniture locations and get your free Auto Show tickets today!


 

*No purchase minimum. Limited quantities available — all free tickets are while supplies last. Visit your local Gardner-White for more details.

Charituesday: Humble Design & Hope Center Macomb

Screen shot 2014-12-30 at 9.31.02 AM

This week’s Charituesday benefits not only one deserving charitable organization, but two! Both Humble Design AND Hope Center Macomb will be receiving $500 Gardner-White gift certificates to use for community members in need. Here’s the best part; the organization with the most votes on our Gardner-White Facebook poll will DOUBLE their prize to $1,000!

About Humble Design

Humble Design assists families coming out of homeless and abuse shelters with the process of rebuilding their home lives. The mission: to turn four bare walls into a clean, dignified and welcoming home by repurposing gently used household goods. Humble Design was born out of the belief that decent families emerging from homelessness deserve to come home each day to a clean, friendly, and dignified home. All family members would have more time, effort and resources to focus on education, home life, employment and building a better future.

Humble Design partners with local area homeless and abuse shelters to identify families that are emerging from shelters and into low-income housing. Many of these families are victims of abuse and have left behind all personal items upon escaping and entering an emergency shelter. Most have no beds, books, toys or furniture to call their own.

About Hope Center Macomb

Hope Center is a no-cost client choice food pantry that is set up in a grocery store format. The pantry is divided in two sections. One section holds nonperishable food received from Gleaners Community Food Bank. The second section holds perishable food received predominately through partnerships with Forgotten Harvest, Entenmann’s Bakery, and Meijer Distribution Center.

Individuals and families can access the pantry a maximum of six times per year and no more than once every thirty days. The amount of nonperishable food is limited by pounds based on the number of persons in the household. Perishable food is given to our clients as “bonus weight” and not counted against the households weight limit.

Screen shot 2014-12-10 at 11.30.08 AM

1. Peppermint Mocha Cupcakes from Sally’s Baking Addiction

These cupcakes are a grand-slam when it comes to the holidays! The minty candy canes paired with the rich mocha cupcakes are so delicious, you’ll have a hard time saying no to a second!

Gingerbread-Cheesecake-Bites-2-400x600

2. Gingerbread Cheesecake Bites from A Few Shortcuts

Not only are these cheesecake bites super easy to make (only 5 ingredients!), but they are completely addicting. The gingersnap crumbs compliment the gingerbread infused cheesecake filling perfectly.

Red-Velvet-Trifle-Recipe - Artsy Chicks Rule

3. Red Velvet Trifle from Artsy Chicks Rule

This dessert is the best way to have your red velvet cake and eat it too! Layers of cake, white chocolate pudding and cream cheese topping come together to make this dish. Bonus: the beautiful red and white layers make this dessert extra festive. Dig in!

Cranbery-Bread-1

4. Christmas Cranberry Pound Cake from OMG Chocolate Desserts

Usually cranberries are a Thanksgiving staple, but this delicious recipe will make them the star of Christmas! The tart cranberries cut through the super sweet pound cake to make this a very well rounded dessert that everyone will enjoy.

Christmas bark2

5. Christmas Oreo Cookie Bark from Keeping Up With the Kitchen Mom

This dessert is a great one to make with the kids! They will have so much fun smashing the Oreos and pretzels to make this delicious and festive bark. Individually wrap a few pieces, finish with a ribbon, and you have a cute treat for your kids to take to their friends at school!
