HomeWorld Furniture Divisional Manager Wins Trip To US Open

Furniture World Magazine


Daphne Oliveros, the divisional manager of HomeWorld Furniture in Hawaii guessed “4525” which was the correct number of “ah” tennis balls in the giant 6 ft. tall tennis sleeve on display in the aspenhome High Point Showroom during the October Market. Oliveros won a trip for two to the 2008 US Tennis Open in New York. “We had a wide range of guesses from a couple hundred to a million but we were pleased to see that Daphne had the correct answer,” stated Dave Heard, executive vice president of sales at aspenhome. “This was a fun promotion that created a great deal of excitement for our dealers as it tied in with our year long campaign that focused on furniture designed for the way people live. We even discovered that we had a few talented jugglers in the group.” Sets of 3 tennis balls with the “ah” logo were given to everyone visiting the showroom. “I was very excited and shocked to learn that I had guessed the correct number of tennis balls in that huge can,” recalled Oliveros. “I wish that I could say that it was a calculated guess like the men standing in front of me tried to do, but it was all luck. I am a big sports fan and have never been to New York before so I am looking forward to both finally seeing New York and attending the US Tennis Open next year.” After Market, the aspenhome tennis balls will be donated to the area Humane Society so the dogs waiting to be adopted will also stay on top of their game. Area assisted living facilities will also received some of the balls. They play well on walker’s legs for easy maneuvering. aspenhome has evolved over the past 27 years from a small family owned home entertainment business based in Phoenix to a full line furniture company specializing in thoughtfully designed innovative products for the way people work, play and relax at home.
