CROSSVILLE, TN -- Crossville, Inc. has announced the winners of the 2016 The Common Thread for the Cure scarf design contest, a biennial competition held in support of the non-profit organization that provides practical support for members of the furnishings and interior design industries facing the challenges of breast cancer.
"We received lots of entries this year, so it's really exciting to see how the voting turned out," said Robin Rhea, Crossville's director of brand marketing. "We appreciate how our network of distributors and the interior design and tile industry communities rallied to show their creativity in support of this great cause."
For this year's competition, there is a Judges' Choice winner, as well as the People's Choice winner determined by popular vote.
The Judges' Choice was selected by a panel of interior design professionals, including Kathy Sandler of Nashville, Allan Dallatorre of Los Angeles, Lisa Mende of Charlotte and Linda Holt of Boston.
Both of the winning designs are being produced as scarves that will be available through Crossville distributors in early September, in anticipation of Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October. The scarf competition is just one of the ways that Crossville carries out its commitment to raising awareness of breast cancer and offering practical contributions to help those in the industry who are struggling with the disease.
Since 2007, Crossville has donated more than $75,000 to The Common Thread for the Cure.
