2017 Annual Summer Social Was a Smash!

NKBA Manhattan Summer Meeting Ahoy, Matey! Did you set sail with us to Treasure Island on July 19th? We hope so because all had a fabulous time! With over 220 attendees from four design associations across two incredible showrooms our island adventure had it all: treasure hunts, steel drums, exotic cocktails "Hafele Hurricane" and "Toto Tornado", delicious tropical inspired eats, and an incredible amount of pirate booty given away. Who wouldn't have fun!? If you joined us thank you for helping to make the evening a success and such fun! If you didn't, make sure to join us next year for our next adventure! I am already thinking about where we should travel to next year!

Congratulations to all our Treasure Hunt winners! We cannot thank our trade partners enough for both their continued commitment to bettering the industry and for their incredible generosity in providing nearly $25,000.00 in (product) pirate booty to give away! Please go to our Facebook page and thank them and like their pages. Please, let's show them the same support they always show us.

Thank you to the teams at Hafele and Toto, led by John Risch and Cheryl Tursi respectively, for their incredible generosity, time, input, and never-ending hospitality. When the multi-association committee approached John and Cheryl with the idea of co-hosting "The Social" they jumped on board with no hesitation. They, along with the committee members, worked tirelessly to make this event happen! Hence, when you next see Kent Brasloff (NKBA), Dawn DeLuca (NKBA), Barbara Haberman (IDS), John Risch (Hafele), Julie Schuster (IDS), Judy Sheridan (DLFNY), John Tudisco (IFDA), and Cheryl Tursi (TOTO), make sure to shout out, "Ahoy, Matey and Thank You!".

If you would like to get involved and join a committee, please reach out to Kent Brasloff.


Fourth of July in New York is always a blast. If you caught the fireworks celebration you'll note that the creators outdid themselves in a spectacular four-boat firework display that brought the wow to the party. But the biggestblast of all this month was our annual Summer Social held on July 19th. Hosted and sponsored by Hafele America and Toto, these two showrooms provided two floors of food, music and fun for the eager participants. Pirate hats and eye patches made fun props for this treasure island night.
