Bethesda Row furniture store Urban Country (7117 Arlington Rd.) is unveiling a new line of products manufactured in the United States by teaming up with a group of wounded war veterans from Walter Reed.
The “Made In America” event, set for Thursday, Oct. 25 from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at the store will showcase Urban Country’s new collection and include a silent auction to benefit the Achilles Freedom Team of Wounded Vets participating in the Marine Corps Marathon on Oct. 28.
The wine and hors d’oeuvres reception is free and open to the public and will feature keynote speeches from a local Walter Reed veteran and Urban Country reps.
From the press release:
We want to raise awareness on the importance of buying American goods and show how easy it is to create a lovely home with domestic-made furnishings,” says Rachelle Roth, founder and owner of Urban Country. “Comparably most American-made products are lower in price than imported goods and much more ecofriendly leaving less of an environmental carbon footprint. Urban Country is passionate about our Made In America quest and proud to help support our local wounded veterans currently in recovery at Walter Reed.
