This week we finished up a special featured project for the Savicki family. They chose to accent their home with a brand new Provia Signet Entry Door with Sidelites and 15 beautiful casement windows!
Our entry doors are energy efficient, built to the highest quality standards and give you a superior alternative to consumer-grade doors that are sold through home improvement retailers. Installing these energy efficient doors will save you money on heating and cooling costs, improve interior comfort and increase the value of your home.
Often times called a ‘crank’ window, casement windows are hinged and open from the side to project outward. Casement windows open outward for light, fresh air and side breezes. They’re tightly sealed for energy efficiency and great to install in hard-to-reach places, such as over sinks and appliances in the kitchen. Special grids can be configured on casement windows to replicate a tradition double hung window look.
Opening Doors for Down Syndrome Awareness
Not only are the Savicki’s opening up a brand new entry door, they are also opening up doors for those with special needs. On October 2, 2008 the Savicki’s welcomed into the world a baby boy, Brody, who was diagnosed with down syndrome. Since his birth they have been working hard to break the stigma around those born with Trisomy-21.
The Brody Savicki Foundation assists families financially in medical needs, provides activities, scholarships and other events for individuals with Down syndrome.
” Our hope is to educate people on the UP side of DOWN, and to help people realize how normal people with Down syndrome really are. When couples are given the news that their newborn baby has Down syndrome, we hope that they will experience all the joy and tears of happiness that should come with welcoming your new child into your world. We believe that every individual with Down syndrome should be able to chase and achieve their dreams, and our goal is to be able to assist in any way possible. Down syndrome is a disability that does not define Brody or anyone and it does not define us.” –Randy & Christine Savicki
They have put together an annual Brody’s Buddy Ride, a 21, 42 or 63 mile bike ride to educate and raise community awareness for children with special needs. The tenth annual Ride will take place on August 17, 2019. It has been established in honor of Brody Majka Savicki, as well as other children and adults who have Down syndrome. Find more information on the ride, ways to donate or how to register on their website at BrodysBuddyRide.org.
New York Sash is proud to be a sponsor of this amazing event!
