What is Austin NARI all about?

Austin NARI is a nonprofit trade association serving the professional remodeling industry.

A portion of our ticket sales goes to the Bliss-Curlee Community Service Project. Can you tell us more about that?

“Austin NARI is humbled and honored to be able to take part in assisting a community member in need.”

Bliss-Curlee Community Service Project

“On November 7, 2021, Michael Curlee fell about 15 feet from his deer stand and sustained a spinal cord injury that left him paralyzed. It’s been a long and complicated road to recovery, and he has yet to be able to return home since the accident.”

“True to his nature, he is determined to make the most of his situation and even eventually find ways to
hunt and fish again. He wants badly to get back to his life with as much independence as possible. Within the next couple of months, he is very much hoping to be back in his own home in Buda, TX with his family.”

“Michael Curlee is a strong, determined man full of energy and charm. A self-proclaimed, well-rounded redneck from Edna, TX, who has traveled across the world for work while trying to sneak in as many fishing and hunting trips as possible along the way. He’s a passionate man, loyal to his friends and family, and dedicated to his wife, Joy, and son, Milo.”

“Michael’s family’s house was built in the 1970s and it needs significant structural changes, including the kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom, to accommodate using a wheelchair. Austin NARI has volunteered to redo his entrance and all his flooring, remove several walls, relocate plumbing and make his bathroom handicapped accessible. To make this possible, Austin NARI members are donating their time and resources, as well as kindly asking the local community to assist via monetary, labor, or material donations. Needs include plumbing, electrical, framing, drywall, insulation, doors, hardware, cabinets, countertops, tiles, and flooring.
