Wilson Associates Hosts 2013 Los Angeles Point of Excellence Awards

Jul 8, 2013

Dallas-based Wilson Associates brought together the local design community at the Four Seasons Los Angeles at Beverly Hills to acknowledge excellence in vendor service, raise support for the Wilson Foundation (WF), and introduce Hussain Kamal⎯⎯the new senior vice president and managing director of Wilson Associates Los Angeles office.  

This year, 250 guests attended the 16th annual Los Angeles Point of Excellence Awards Luncheon⎯⎯which honored James Schaffner of P/Kaufmann Contract and Scott Vaughan and David Benz of Vaughan Benz. Guest speaker Dr. Peter Farrant addressed the medical and educational progress in Limpopo Province and elaborated on the WF’s plans to fund a tuberculosis research program. The program will involve UT Southwestern Medical Center, the University of Cape Town, and the local community.  

“The luncheon also gives us a chance to exercise our corporate philosophy of giving back—both to vendors and to the Wilson Foundation. Every ticket sold to the luncheon goes directly to the WF, and we’re all encouraged by the thought of doing something; of changing a child’s life,” says Wilson Associates co-president Hemanshu Parwani.  

This year’s sponsors included Couristan, Alger-Triton, PORCELANOSA USA, Tiger Leather, Wolf-Gordon, TOTO USA, Inc., A. Rudin, Crossley Axminster, Inc., JL  Furnishings, LASVIT, and P/Kaufmann Contract.   

“Our current and future efforts in South Africa and Texas would not be possible without the support of this year’s corporate sponsors,” says WF executive director John Canterbury. “Their loyalty and generosity is inspiring, and we are privileged to not only call them colleagues, but to also call them friends, partners, and philanthropists. The design community cares!”

The 2013 Wilson Associates Dallas Point of Excellence Awards Luncheon will be hosted at the Ritz-Carlton, Dallas on Wednesday, November 6th.
