Concrete Cares, whose booth was set up next to Decorative Concrete LIVE! at the recent World of Concrete, raised more than $38,000 during the show this year with 15% of the proceeds going to the Al Oldenorlf family. Al was a finisher for Sahara Concrete in Las Vegas as a lead foreman for many years before being stricken with bladder cancer.
At the Decorative Concrete LIVE! display, a bas-relief mural was designed and colored to pay tribute to Concrete Cares. The charitable group is planning to be a part of WOC 2018 as well as a sponsor for a Concrete Cares golf outing at the Concrete Decor Show this fall at Innisbrook in Palm Harbor, Florida.
On July 18, Concrete Cares will host a golf tournament in Hastings, Nebraska. The charity also makes concrete tables that continue to be a hit to help families.
