Budget Blinds – the leading window coverings franchise in the nation – recently partnered with the popular home improvement show Designing Spaces™ to help renovate the Boys and Girls Club of Broward County, FL. The show travels all over the country redefining and redesigning spaces by incorporating decorating trends, do-it-yourself projects, and step by step home improvements. The Designing Spaces episode featuring Budget Blinds will air on Lifetime television on Wednesday, June 19th at 7:30am EST/PST, and re-air on Friday, June 28th, as part of a two episode Spaces of Hope segment.
Every day, over 200 underprivileged kids gather at the Boys and Girls Club of Broward County to seek guidance and support from caring community role models. The purpose of the center is to help them improve their lives by building self-esteem and developing values and skills during their critical period of growth. Tailored programs focus on everything from education, social recreation, health and physical education, to leadership development, cultural enrichment, and personal adjustment with one-on-one counseling.
Unfortunately, the Boys and Girls Club of Broward County was in need of renovations and it lacked the resources to move forward with one. Budget Blinds was honored to be among those who answered the call for help. Working closely with the dream team at Designing Spaces, Budget Blinds installed cordless solar shades and graphic shades (featuring inspirational quotes) on windows throughout the facility. These shades were chosen because of their child safety features and because they are easy to clean and operate.
The solar and graphic shades were made possible through a generous donation from Budget Blinds’ trusted manufacturing partner Draper Inc., and by the measuring and installation work done by Budget Blinds franchisees and design experts Connie Bolton and Tom Kay.
“Using a solutions based approach, we were able to find the ideal window coverings to install throughout the facility while incorporating practical design elements to make it a comfortable hangout for teens,” said Connie Bolton. “We are very excited to have had the opportunity to contribute to such a deserving organization in support of future generations.”
The transformation of the Broward County Boys and Girls Club on Designing Spaces will span 2 episodes. The first airs June 12th and the second, featuring Budget Blinds and the big reveal, airs June 19th with a re-air on June 28th. All episodes will be broadcasted on Lifetime television at 7:30am EST/PST. Tune in to watch Budget Blinds, Designing Spaces and others, give the Boys and Girls Club of Broward County a much needed makeover.
