For the second year in a row, 11 construction industry firms donated tile, stone and installation materials to create tiled benches for the Give Kids the World Village in Kissimmee, Fla. The Village opened with the intention of giving terminally ill children a chance to visit Disney World cost-free.

Laticrete provided rapid setting installation materials. Tile designer and manufacturer Michelle Griffoul, book author and consultant Michael Byrne and technical consultant Scott Fleming from Oceanside Glasstile Co. volunteered tile and labor.

The benches were crafted with creative tile designs for Coverings show visitors to observe. Tau Ceramica, American Marazzi Tile, Bisazza, Ceramgres, Gresmanc, Interstyle Ceramic & Glass, Laufen and Michelle Griffoul Studios were some of the companies that participated in the show.
