Home News Dover Rug & Home sponsors annual charity event

Dover Rug & Home and Dover Squash & Fitness are pleased to announce their sponsorship of the third annual “Showdown at Symphony III” taking place on Saturday, September 15th at Symphony Hall in Boston.

The 2012 “Showdown at Symphony,” presented by First Republic Bank, features a team competition between England and Egypt. Current 2012 World No. 1 rivals James Willstrop and Nick Matthew will be representing England against Egypt’s squash prodigy Ramy Ashour and fourth-time World Champion Amr Shabana. These pros have led their respective nations to the World Championships since 2005 and either England or Egypt has come away as the winner.

“Showdown at Symphony” donates 50% of the net event proceeds to SquashBusters, the first non-profit youth enrichment program to combine squash, academics, and community service. SquashBusters is based at Northeastern University in Boston and serves 120 urban youths annually. It is an intensive, after-school program that combines academic enrichment, athletics, community service and character development.

“We are thrilled to again be a sponsor of Showdown at Symphony and to generate more interest for this sport,” says Mahmud Jafri, owner of Dover Rug & Home.

Dover Squash & Fitness is a new state of the art facility offering private lessons, tournaments, fitness and yoga classes and is home to the Dover Squash Academy, celebrating 25 years of excellence. The facility also hosts tournaments and exhibition matches for world ranked players.  This fall Dover Squash & Fitness becomes the training facility for the Pakistani Junior Squash Team as it prepares to compete in tournaments throughout the United States.

The recipient of the “Best of Boston Home 2011” award, Dover Rug & Home is also the proud sponsor of more than fifty charitable organizations each year and has received the CNC Reader’s Choice award for ‘Best Carpet Store’ ten years in a row. Previously nominated for the Retailer of the Year Award, Dover is an Industry Partner to the American Society of Inteior Designers, and a member of the International Furnishing and Design Association (IFDA) and the World Floor Covering Association.
