Maryland and Northern Virginia Floor Covering Association has sent an e-mail to its members regarding Thomas 'Mac' Middleton's annual Old Fashioned Barbecue Fundraiser. The e-mail is reprinted below in full:

"Senator Middleton is the Chairman of the Maryland Senate Finance Committee as well as a small business owner. He was very supportive of our industry during the recent hearings. Senator Middleton was instrumental in facilitating the working relationship between DLLR and the floor covering industry which ultimately led to amendment of the Maryland Work Place Fraud Act. MDNVAFCA would like to pass along the information to this fundraising event for any members who may be interested. Individual tickets are $35.00. Thanks so much."
