Ashley Homestore and the Memphis Tigers Host Hope to Dream Event


MEMPHIS, Tenn. – On Saturday, April 28th, Ashley HomeStore (AHS) and the Memphis Tigers Football Team hosted a Hope to Dream event, giving a brand-new bed set to 100 kids in the Memphis area. Each bed set included a twin mattress set, pillow, sheets and comforter. The receiving children were selected through Ashley HomeStore’s Hope to Dream program and local community partners in Memphis.

The event was held at the Billy J Murphy Athletic Complex, located on the University of Memphis Campus. Representatives from the Memphis Tigers as well as executives from AHS spoke at the event. Saturday’s event also included exciting kids’ activities, fun football drills, a facility tour, photo booth, food, and gift bags for each of the children provided by AHS and the Memphis Tigers.

Chad Spencer, President of the Dufresne Spencer Group, the largest licensee of Ashley HomeStores, is passionate about this program and is excited to bring this event back to Memphis for the 4th consecutive year. We can have the greatest product at the best price, but if we don’t serve the guest and give back to the community that supports us, we are spiritually bankrupt as a company. That’s why events like this and Hope to Dream are so important to us at Ashley HomeStore, says Spencer.

Hope to Dream is an initiative started by AHS to provide children in the community who do not have a bed to call their own. A portion of all mattress sales at AHS goes toward supporting the Hope to Dream program. Since its inception, more than 50,000 children have received a brand-new bed.

Hope to Dream - Ashley HomeStore believes that every child deserves a good night’s sleep. Founded in 2010 on that guiding principle, Ashley HomeStore’s “Hope to Dream” program provides beds to less fortunate children across the U.S. A portion of the proceeds for every mattress purchased at a participating Ashley HomeStore helps pay for beds for children in need. Since its inception, more than 50,000 children have received a brand new bed. Those wishing to nominate a child can visit Hope to Dream Opens in a new window.
