On Wednesday, August 29, 2012 the Piedmont Club will hold its 26th annual golf tournament at the Colonial Country Club in Thomasville NC. The Piedmont Club provides industry reps with local networking, services and events throughout the year.

This year the Piedmont Furniture Club will honor Christine O’Connor DesVergers, daughter of Madeline and Kevin O’Connor of Samson Marketing, with a donation to Brenner Children’s Hospital. The donation will specifically target Pediatric Oncology Research.

Christine was 31 and the mother of 2 small children when she was diagnosed with Stage IV breast cancer. In 2004 “Team Christine” was created to raise money for the Koman Foundation’s Race for the Cure. With 100 plus members they raised over $160,000. In 2011, at age 38, Christine lost her battle with cancer. This year the Piedmont Furniture Club is honoring Christine DesVergers for her courage and motivation to others during her struggle.


The Piedmont Furniture Club is the local Piedmont North Carolina division of the Virginia/Carolinas Chapter of the International Home Furnishings Representatives Association.
