The National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA) is accepting and encouraging donations to the NWFA Education & Research Foundation (NERF) during the NWFA Wood Flooring Expo registration process.

NERF was established to provide industry research and educate future generations of wood flooring professionals. Thanks to the generosity of its members, NWFA has conducted research such as the Life Cycle Analysis of Wood Flooring, and awarded more than $100,000 in scholarships.

Individuals who make a donation during their online pre-Expo registration will be entered in a drawing to win a NASCAR driving experience or a $2,000 cash prize. The winner will be drawn on the last day of online registration, which is Friday, April 22.

Separately, Lägler is celebrating its 60th anniversary during Expo with a fundraiser in its booth benefiting NERF. Raffle tickets will be sold to win a special edition Lägler carbon-fiber Trio sanding machine, valued at $6,500. Lägler is making a second Trio available to NWFA for display and additional fundraising throughout the year at NWFA's headquarters in Chesterfield, Mo. According to the company, only three of these sanders were manufactured to celebrate its 60th anniversary, which will standout for their charcoal gray, textured, metallic carbon-fiber casing. In addition to its unique look, the Trio is a self-contained, nearly dust-free, multi-disc sanding machine that also aids in reducing the time and physical strain required on the jobsite.
