After 30 years in the business, VIETRI has grown to become the largest importer of handcrafted Italian products in the American tabletop industry. To celebrate the progress made since their humble beginnings in 1983, they have partnered with SunTrust Bank to build a home with Habitat for Humanity of Orange County. The build kicks off Friday, March 22 at 9 a.m. at 505 Locust Rd. in Hillsborough.
In order to raise the $78,000 needed for the build, VIETRI has created special limited-edition anniversary mugs that will be available in April in retail stores and on www.vietri.com, with all proceeds going toward building this new home.
"For 30 years, VIETRI has been a part of many homes and lives," says CEO Susan Gravely. "Now, we want to give back to a family who needs a home in honor of the many homes that have been a part of our success. We have built VIETRI with the work of many hands and now we will build a home in the same way, together."
